The reception of Stoic philosophy is an important part of the early Christian discourse with contemporary philosophy. By comparing Christian texts to other ancient sources, Charlotte Kirsch-Klingelhöffer shows how Stoic thoughts such as conflagration, destiny and human autonomy, and terms such as logos spermatikos, either become part of Christian theology by adaption/modification or are criticized in order to engage in a dialogue with ancient philosophy.
