Example text

Recent work on the cultural setting of Paul’s world and the early Christian apocryphal literature outside the New Testament has led to a further important insight. The Paul of the Epistles must not be confused with the Paul of hagiography, legend, and cult. The two are far from being identical, perhaps even compatible, and the trajectory of their reception was quite different. What is more, neither of the two seems to have had universal significance for the development of the early Christian faith.

The story of Paul in Athens (Acts 17) suggests that the solar eclipse on the day of Christ’s death was the reason for the erection of the altar “to the unknown God” and that Dionysius the Areopagite needed a healing miracle of Paul in order to be converted. Chronology is of special interest to Peter of Poitiers. Thus, Paul’s conversion is dated in the year of Jesus’ crucifixion, Peter’s tenure as bishop of Antioch is calculated at seven years and his episcopacy in Rome at twenty-five. The book closes with the martyrdom of Peter and Paul on John Chrysostom: In Praise of Saint Paul, trans.

Equally important has been the recognition of multiple strands of reception from the very beginning of the Christian era. The canonical Paul of the Pastoral and the Petrine Epistles was by no means the only legitimate continuation of Paul’s legacy. Nor was the Paul of the earliest centuries primarily the “apostle of the heretics,”2 of Gnostics, Marcionites, and Manicheans. Rather, all sorts of people who regarded themselves as Christians claimed to preserve the Pauline heritage and to guard it from corruption.
