Nuove osservazioni per lo studio del rescritto di Adriano sui Cristiani
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The interpretation of Hadrian’s legislation concerning the Christians is here brought into focus. On the basis of already discussed evidence and of new attestations, especially from the apologist Justin’s Dialogue with Trypho, the suggested interpretation of Hadrian’s normative text to Minucius Fundanus is that the Christians were to be condemned only if guilty of specific crimes, not simply for their nomen Christianum. Beside, the apologies of Quadratus and Aristides are to be dated under Hadrian, before AD 125, and their probable location in Athens (just as the setting of Justin’s Dialogue is in Greece in Hadrian’s days) seems to be significant in relation to a philhellenic emperor. If they were written at the beginning of his reign, they probably influenced Hadrian in his attitude toward the Christians.
