Volume no. 9 in SERAPHIM is out now: Autorität im Spannungsfeld von Bildung und Religion, ed. by  Peter Gemeinhardt and Tanja S. Scheer, Mohr Siebeck, Tübingen 2020.

Constructions of authority played an important role in education in pre-modern cultures, where they supported claims of truth and aided the transfer of religious knowledge. By venturing onto this field of tension and competing interests, the contributions in this volume garner insights into the inner dynamics of cultures in and around the Mediterranean.

Matthias Becker geht dieser Frage auf breiter Quellenbasis nach, indem er erstmals das Lukasevangelium und die Apostelgeschichte zu den Schriften des Redners und philosophischen Wanderpredigers Dion von Prusa in Beziehung setzt....
