Dieser Beitrag untersucht den Wertekonflikt, der zwischen der paganen Praxis der paideia in Ephesos und ihrer Konzeptualisierung in den Schriften der frühen Christen erkennbar ist. Dafür wird der inschriftliche und archäologische Befund ausgewertet, indem besonderes Augenmerk auf die pädagogische Funktion der Gymnasiarchen in Ephesos, die Ehren- und Moralvorstellungen, die sich in der Bibliothek des Kelsos manifestieren, und die Belege des Ausdrucks παιδεíα in den ephesinischen Inschriften gelegt wird. Für die Ausbreitung, die das christliche paideia-Konzept ungeachtet seiner den geläufigen sozialen Vorstellungen entgegengesetzten Ausrichtung gefunden hat, werden mehrere Gründe vorgeschlagen.

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.
