251 van Slyke, Daniel QUODVULTDEUS OF CARTHAGE The Apocalyptic Theology of a Roman African in Exile
St Pauls Publications 2003 0957748361 / 9780957748361 Paperback Fine with no dust jacket 
This study provides a fresh analysis of the ancient evidence and the modern scholarship on Quodvultdeus, the bishop of Carthage who was exiled by the Vandals in AD 439. It highlights his apocalyptic theology, showing how he selectively appropriates the eschatological thought of previous Christian authors such as Jerome and Orosius. Particular attention is paid to Augustine's influence on Quodvultdeus in order to draw out the independence of the latter's thought. ; Early Christian Studies 5; 344 pages

254 Wallace, Richard & Wynne Williams THE THREE WORLDS OF PAUL OF TARSUS
Routledge 1998 0415135915 / 9780415135917 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Minor bump to head of spine. Light shelfwear. ; 0.79 x 8.5 x 5.51 Inches; 239 pages; The world in which early Christianity developed consisted of a complex of distinct communities and cultural layers, which interacted with one another, sometimes co-operatively, and sometimes in confrontation. The Three Worlds of Paul of Tarsus explores this world through the life of the apostle Paul, examining the three fundamental cultural layers: the native cultures; the common Hellenistic culture which had been spread in the east as a result of the conquests of Alexander; and the culture of the political overlord, Rome. It shows how Paul, as a Jew, a Greek-speaker and a Roman citizen, participates in all of these layers. The authors give an account of the places Paul visited, showing their historical, cultural and political differences and discuss the varied categories, such as religion, philosophy and language, which constituted identity.

265 Wright, Joseph & O. L. Sayce GRAMMAR OF THE GOTHIC LANGUAGE And the Gospel of St. Mark, Selections from the Other Gospels and the Second Epistle to Timothy, with Notes and Glossary
Oxford Clarendon Press 1966 0198119224 / 9780198119227 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Minor shelfwear. ; 383 pages; The author of several Old English and Old High German primers and grammars, Joseph Wright wrote the present book as an alternative to revising his earlier Gothic Primer for a third edition. The Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and understanding of comparative Germanic grammar, essential to anyone studying the ancient Germanic languages. By way of readings, the book provides the Greek texts of the gospels of St matthew (Chapter VI) and St. Luke (Chapter XV) along with the Gothic translations by Ulfilas (AD 311-383) , bishop of the Goths. Interesting for students of comparative philology. A knowledge of Gothic is indispensable to students of the oldest periods of other Germanic languages, this book will be of interest to students whose interests are mainly philological and linguistic. This Grammar provides a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic and an understanding of comparative Germanic grammar. If Wulfila had not translated the very Bible into Gothic, we wouldn't have today any tangible hint of the existence of this early Germanic language.

267 Ziadé, Raphaëlle LES MARTYRS MACCABÉES: DE L'HISTOIRE JUIVE AU CULTE CHRÉTIEN Les Homélies De Grégoire De Nazianze Et De Jean Chrysostome
Brill Academic Publishers 2006 9004153845 / 9789004153844 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Unwrapped in plastic. ; En français; Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae; 408 pages; ***Les martyrs Maccabées, héros juifs de la persécution d’Antiochus IV Epiphane, furent intégrés dans le martyrologe chrétien au IVè siècle. À la même époque, en Orient, deux Pères de l’Eglise, Grégoire de Nazianze et Jean Chrysostome, ont prononcé des discours panégyriques en leur honneur, étudiés et traduits dans ce livre. La première partie montre comment, depuis l’origine, l’Eglise citait comme exemples bibliques ces martyrs connus par le Deuxième et le Quatrième livre des Maccabées. La deuxième partie décrit, au travers des panégyriques de Grégoire et de Jean, les circonstances qui ont marqué l’instauration de la fête chrétienne dédiée à ces martyrs. La troisième partie analyse la prédication adressée aux fidèles à partir de l’épisode maccabéen, Eléazar, les sept frères et leur Mère devenant, sur le modèle de 4 M, des exemples de vertus et d’ascèse proposés à l’imitation de tous. Le livre explore ainsi un aspect original du culte des martyrs, la christianisation de martyrs juifs morts pour la défense de la Loi, et met en lumière les choix de prédication, parfois opposés, de Grégoire et de Jean face à l’enracinement juif de ce culte.
