How strong was John's influence on Irenaeus? Bernhard Mutschler gives a comprehensive overview of all the biblical and non-biblical quotations and allusions made by the 2nd century father of the church. Irenaeus is shown as a careful, clever and responsible interpreter of the Scriptures, an excellent scholar of the Corpus Johanneum and above all a prudent and solicitous bishop of his local church.
Is Irenaeus, as he writes himself, a pupil of Polycarp of Smyrna, the pupil of John, who wrote the Fourth Gospel? How strong are the Johannine traces in his work? How does he explain the Johannine Gospel? Apart from the section related to John, this study also includes a comprehensive overview of all the biblical and non-biblical quotations and allusions made by the 2nd century father of the church and brings new and computer-aided methods (e.g. statistics, diagrams etc.) into the debate. Irenaeus is shown as a careful, clever and responsible interpreter of the Scriptures, an excellent scholar of the Corpus Johanneum and above all a prudent and solicitous bishop of his local Gallic church.
