Wirkungsgeschichtlich orientierte Forschung zum historischen Jesus benötigt eine angemessene Erklärung von Ursprung und Eigenheit der Jesusüberlieferung. Sie muss die Frage beantworten, auf welche Weise Tradition Vergangenheit vermittelt. Nach einer Kritik der sogenannten memory-distortion-Forschung untersucht der Aufsatz die Ursprünge der Jesustradition an der Schnittstelle zwischen Kognition und kulturellen Medien. Es wird gezeigt, dass Tradition ein kulturell bedingtes und symbolisch strukturiertes Phänomen ist, das eine strategische Verbindung zur historischen Wirklichkeit unterhält.

More about this publication?
  • The journal is concerned with early Christianity as a historical phenomenon. Thereby, Early Christianity aims to overcome certain limitations which have hindered the development of the discipline, including the concept of the "New Testament" itself. The journal, then, is taken to cover not only the first Christian century but also the second.

    This journal will not, however, give any special prominence to reception-history or to the second century. The total phenomenon called "early Christianity" comprises a kaleidoscopic range of individual phenomena, including communal structures, social norms, discursive practices, points of conflict, material remains, and much else – far more than just the production and reception of texts. This journal will strive to reflect this multiplicity of contexts, in the expectation of new light on our subject-matter from a variety of angles.
