Get Ethnicity and Argument in Eusebius' Praeparatio Evangelica PDF

By Aaron P. Johnson

Eusebius' magisterial Praeparatio Evangelica (written someday among advert 313 and 324) deals an apologetic defence of Christianity within the face of Greek accusations of irrationality and impiety. even though brimming with the quotations of alternative (often misplaced) Greek authors, the paintings is ruled through a transparent and sustained argument. opposed to the tendency to work out the Praeparatio as purely an anthology of different resources or a defence of monotheistic faith opposed to paganism, Aaron P. Johnson seeks to understand Eusebius' contribution to the discourses of Christian id via investigating the buildings of ethnic id (especially Greek) on the middle of his paintings. research of his `ethnic argumentation' shows a mode of shielding Christianity through construing its rivals as traditionally rooted countries, whose position within the narrative of worldwide historical past serves to undermine the legitimacy in their claims to historic knowledge and piety.
