Chrysostomosbilder in 1600 Jahren
The Image of John Chrysostom in 1600 Years of Christian Tradition

Facetten der Wirkungsgeschichte eines Kirchenvaters

Edited by: Martin Wallraff and Rudolf Brändle
The Church Father John Chrysostom died 1600 years ago. Hardly any Christian from Antiquity has done more to form the identity of the most varied church traditions right up to the present day. While Protestants honour him as a preacher (hence the honorific Chrysostomos‑ “Golden-mouthed”), the Orthodox Churches know him as the progenitor of their Sunday liturgy (Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom). The volume provides an insight into the many facets of the history of this figure's influence.

Reviews

"In ultima analisi questi atti offrono un contributo assai imponante all'indagine sulla persistenza dell'influsso che la figura e I'opera di Crisostomo hanno esercitato nel corso dei secoli su ambienti assai diversi della cristianiti occidentale e orientale, a dimostrazione della feconditä del pensiero e dell'attivitä letteraria dell'Antiocheno."Sergio Zincone in: Adamantius 16/2010 "Umfangreiche Zitate und Literaturhinweise in den Fußnoten, eine ausführliche Bibliographie zur Orthodoxie, der Stellenindex zur Bibel sowie den griechischen und lateinischen Autoren sowie ein Abbildungs- und Autorenverzeichnis runden den Band ab, der dem Leser einenfundierten Einblick in Werk und Wirkungsgeschichte des Kirchenvaters bietet. Für die 45 farbigen Abbildungen zur Ikonographie des Johannes Chrysostomus werden die Leserinnen und Leser besonders dankbar sein."Gabriele Ziegler in: Erbe und Auftrag 4.85/2009 "This collection of articles, which includes more than forty illustrations and an index locorum, will be useful not just for students of Chrysostom, but for anyone interested in the emergence and development of patristic tradition."Arnoud Visser in: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History 1-4/2009
