Written after the middle of the 2nd century CE by an educated Christian, Tatian's »Address to the Greeks« is a powerfully eloquent and all-encompassing attack against both Hellenic culture and Hellenic gods. The volume presents an introduction into the author and his work, followed by the Greek text (thoroughly revised), a new annotated German translation and essays elucidating the work's theological, religious and generally »ideological« context and its subsequent reception.
Written after the middle of the 2nd century CE by an educated Christian, Tatian's »Address to the Greeks« is a powerfully eloquent and all-encompassing attack against both Hellenic culture and Hellenic gods. It is thus an important precursor of the vehement spiritual conflicts of the 4th century CE between traditional Graeco-Roman paganism and Christianity. The volume presents an introduction into the author and his writings as well as into the »Address« itself, followed by the original Greek text (which has been subjected to a thorough revision with regard to earlier editions), a new German translation with a thorough annotation elucidating the numerous details of content to be found in the work, and after that by a number of essays putting the »Address« in its theological, religious and generally »ideological« context and shedding light on its subsequent reception.
