Summary
How have Greek philosophical and early Christian tradition reflected on the origin and the goal of the cosmos and on the answers that were provided in the respective traditions? The essays in this volume show that Greek philosophical and early Christian tradition had a common interest in reflecting not only on the principles that govern cosmology and on how the cosmos is reverting on its principles, but also on the answers provided in each tradition.
