In his History of the Church, Eusebius of Caesarea († approx. 340) presents the first comprehensive history of Christianity from its beginnings. In it, he devotes a great deal of attention to the subject of heresy. Which heresies did Eusebius know? How does he sketch them? Which ones does he suppress? The study affords an insight into Eusebius' methodology and follows the development of the first centuries of literature on heresy. Eusebius' conception of heresy is presented systematically, and its special features are evaluated against the background of antique historiography.

Christianity, Empire, and the Making of Religion in Late Antiquity

In Christianity, Empire, and the Making of Religion in Late Antiquity, Jeremy M. Schott examines the ways in which conflicts between Christian and pagan intellectuals over religious, ethnic, and cultural identity contributed to the transformation of Roman imperial rhetoric and ideology in the early fourth century C.E. During this turbulent period, which began with Diocletian's persecution of the Christians and ended with Constantine's assumption of sole rule and the consolidation of a new Christian empire, Christian apologists and anti-Christian polemicists launched a number of literary salvos in a battle for the minds and souls of the empire. Schott focuses on the works of the Platonist philosopher and anti- Christian polemicist Porphyry of Tyre and his Christian respondents: the Latin rhetorician Lactantius, Eusebius, bishop of Caesarea, and the emperor Constantine. Previous scholarship has tended to narrate the Christianization of the empire in terms of a new religion's penetration and conquest of classical culture and society. The present work, in contrast, seeks to suspend the static, essentializing conceptualizations of religious identity that lie behind many studies of social and political change in late antiquity in order to investigate the processes through which Christian and pagan identities were constructed. Drawing on the insights of postcolonial discourse analysis, Schott argues that the production of Christian identity and, in turn, the construction of a Christian imperial discourse were intimately and inseparably linked to the broader politics of Roman imperialism.

Porphyrios, "Contra Christianos"

Die Sammlung, Selektion und Anordnung der Fragmente und Testimonien der porphyrianischen Schrift Gegen die Christen (entstanden nach 270/271 n.Chr.) gestaltet sich seit über 100 Jahren schwierig: Nicht alle Texte, die Adolf von Harnack (1916) und andere dieser Schrift zugeordnet haben, können Porphyrios sicher zugewiesen werden. Die vorliegende neue Sammlung bietet nicht nur einen aktualisierten Bestand von 132 Texten, welcher die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse aufgreift, sondern auch eine Textzusammenstellung, die erstmals zwischen authentischen Fragmenten und Testimonien einerseits und Dubia andererseits unterscheidet. Die Partien des anonymen Hellenen aus dem Apokritikos des Makarios Magnes, welche in alle bisherigen Ausgaben von Contra Christianos aufgenommen wurden, sind aus dem Textbestand ausgeschieden. Durch die deutsche Übersetzung und Erstkommentierung werden die überlieferten Textbruchstücke vollständig erschlossen. Zudem wird Contra Christianos in den größeren Zusammenhang einer Konkurrenz zwischen paganen Platonikern und Christen eingebettet und als Zeugnis einer Bedrohungskommunikation des Porphyrios interpretiert.
