Re: Marcion saute

Publisher.At some point, someone decided to go to a higher organizational level to divide the tasks in the project. He substantively distributed responsibilities and authorities to ensure the best possible effectiveness of the organization at every level. This is how the publisher emerged. The Gosp...

A. Powell Davies was a Unitarian minister. I don't remember there being a reaction to his Unitarianism, but the fact that he was a mere journalist (although the articles were usually, but not always, about religion). Unitarians are not predisposed to defending mainstream ideas, so I liked his appro...

Stephen, I think there were some widespread fears when the DSS first started to slowly reach publication, maybe a little before, that folks were making rash interpretations to identify Jesus within the array of names mentioned in the sectarian scrolls. I always thought this was due to the common bel...

Re: Two Powers in Heaven

Hello andrew, Yes, not only are the Ps Dionysian mystics of a later age, but so also the Merkabah books as they stand are probably as late or later, and already showing signs of decadence (so no longer a thriving tradition) at time they were edited into their final form. I'm only stating that folks ...

Re: Was Paul Marcion (in part, at least)?

One of the other threads here, about the unique POV of Michael Conley, Peter K provided Wayback links to several essays by him that he used to post on his web site. One of them speaks of Peter, Paul and Ignatius, as inventions by 2nd century church fathers who were intent on undermining the Roman em...

Re: Two Powers in Heaven

MrMacSDon, You gotta love Andrei Orlov. One issue I see, though, is that Hekhalot literature as written texts are rather late (near the end of the Roman hegonomy over the east), and as the footnotes to the translation of 3rd (Hebrew) Enoch in Charlesworth's volumes make clear, there were actually at...

Re: What do we know about the revenue / expenditures of early churches?

Hello again allegoria, I found the reference in Conley's Ignatius article, but due to scanning errors and Conley's unusual citation style I had to reformat it a bit. He references Cornelius, Bishop of Rome who, in a letter to Bishop Fabius of Antiochia, dated to 251 C.E., detailed the size of his co...
