Jutta Tloka studies the way ancient Christianity dealt with the ancient ideal of education, the paideia. Using the works of Origen and John Chrysostom, she shows the extent to which the examination of the paideia was of service to the plausibilization of Christianity.
Jutta Tloka studies the way ancient Christianity dealt with the ancient ideal of education, the paideia. Using the works of Origen and John Chrysostom, she shows the extent to which the examination of the paideia was of service to the plausibilization of Christianity. Whereas Origen adhered to the ideal of gnosis and aspired to a dialogue with philosophy in order to substantiate the truth of Christianity, Chrysostom began a rhetorical duel whose aim was to serve not only the mission but also a Christian restructuring of the polis and thus provide proof of the social relevance of Christianity in everyday life. The efforts to make Christian identity intellectually and socially plausible resulted in two important church functions: Christian theology and Christian homiletics.
