Quaestiones ad Stephanum: dating considerations

  • Rajiv Bhola (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation › Presentation


Among the numerous surviving works by Eusebius of Caesarea there stands a relatively obscure minor work, Quaestiones ad Stephanum et Marinum; a didactic discourse directed at the hypothetical Stephan and Marinus, which identifies and explains differences in the canonical gospels. Aside from a few contributions, most notably the recent edition, translation and commentary by Claudio Zamagni
(2003, Université de Lausanne, PhD dissertation) and online updates of fragments collected by Roger Pearse, little attention has been paid to this work, which is mostly known through quotations in later works and fragments in Greek and Syriac. This presentation seeks to address how this early work by Eusebius fits in the development of question-and-answer literature.
