Antike Konzepte neu denken bei Augustinus: Transformationen klassischer Texte in De civitate Dei und weiteren Werken
Augustine’s writings and especially De civitate Dei are difficult to understand without knowing the texts, concepts and models of his predecessors. The authors of this volume focus primarily on the pagan authors Cicero, Ovid, Livius and Seneca and take a look at five concepts and theories: the Stoic theory of emotions, the Roman theory of the state, concepts of history, Roman ethics of exempla judgment and ancient friendship thinking. In addition to the scientific approach, the volume also offers didactic material for use in the upper grades of the Gymnasium. The volume is aimed equally at teachers and students from universities and schools.
