Die Christen als ‚Heilige‘ bei Paulus
[Sanctorum Communio. The Christians as 'Saints' in Paul]
Aims and Scope
The phrase “the communion of saints” is known from the creed. ‛The saints’ refers to all Christians – a sense already used by Paul. This study presents a comprehensive account of Paul’s use of the term ‘the saints’, as well as a detailed analysis of what he meant by ‘saintliness’. The conclusion is that for Paul saintliness was an identifying characteristic of all Christians, very different to the current usage referring to remarkable individuals.
