Heilig’s Paul & Empire Book in “Open Access”

May 31, 2019

In an earlier posting I mentioned Christoph Heilig’s book assessing claims about Paul’s stance vis-a-vis the Roman imperial regime (here).  He has just notified me that the book is now available “open access”, i.e., free to read.  See his note about the matter here.

    Heilig in his Introduction mentions the apparently main thrust of his study, “…whether there is a political subtext in Paul’s letters…” vis-à-vis “a ‘hidden’ criticism of the Roman Empire…” — which reminds me of the interesting thesis of Simone Pétrement (1907-1992), a French scholar of the Christian origins of Gnosticism, who conjectured that the wild & crazy imagery and symbolisms of many of the Gnostic writings were purposefully camouflaging a subversive political content.
