No matter what one ultimately decides about Benedict, it remains incontrovertible that he is a remarkable man. Not only was he a world-class theologian before he was elected to the papacy, but he also gained renown by becoming the first pope to resign freely since Celestine V. He has always been a man who is concerned with the direction of humanity and the triumph of truth, love, and goodness. His zest for life manifests itself not only through his dedication to the church, to theology, and to his ministry but also through his love of Mozart, his affection for his cat, and his enthusiastic admiration of the beauty of creation. 1.

Girolamo Savonarola (September 21, 1452 May 23, 1498) was an Italian Dominican priest and leader of Florence from 1494 until his execution in 1498. He was known for his book burning, destruction of what he considered immoral art, and hostility to the Renaissance. He vehemently preached against the moral corruption of much of the clergy at the time, and his main opponent was Rodrigo Borgia, when he served as Pope Alexander VI from 1492 to 1503.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rafa Leszczy ski (October 1579 29 March 1636) was a Polish-Lithuanian noble and Imperial count. He was the castellan of Kalisz starting in 1618, he became the voivode of Be z in 1620, and the starost of Hrubieszów in 1633. He was extensively educated in law, humanities, theology, military science, natural sciences, and even studied under Galileo. He also traveled over much of Europe. Rafa started his political career in the Sejmik of the Sandomierz Voivodeship. He was an opponent of king Sigismund III Vasa, but he never rose up in open rebellion, like the members of Zebrzydowski's Rebellion did. He was Protestant, and was a defender of Protestant rights and religious tolerance in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, dedicating most of his political influence to matters of religion. He provided shelter for Czech brethren and refugees from Silesia during the Thirty Years' War. He sponsored many new Protestant churches and schools, and developed existing ones, like the school in Leszno, under Czech pedagogue Jan Amos Kome ski. He was called the "Pope of Calvinists in Poland."

Leo the Great

Pope Leo I's theological and political influence in his own time (440-461) and beyond far outweighs the amount of attention he has received in recent scholarship. That influence extended well beyond Rome to the Christian East through his contribution to preparations for the Council of Chalcedon and its outcome. For this he was alternately praised and vilified by the opposing parties at the Council. Leo made his views known through letters, and a vast number of homilies. While so many of these survive, Leo and his works have not been the subject of a major English-language socio-historical study in over fifty years. In this brief introduction to the life and works of this important leader of the early church, we gain a more accurate picture of the circumstances and pressures which were brought to bear on his pontificate. A brief introduction surveys the scanty sources which document Leo's early life, and sets his pontificate in its historical context, as the Western Roman Empire went into serious decline, and Rome lost its former status as the western capital. Annotated translations of various excerpts of Leo's letters and homilies are organised around four themes dealing with specific aspects of Leo's activity as bishop of Rome:Leo as spiritual adviser on the life of the faithfulLeo as opponent of heresythe bishop of Rome as civic and ecclesiastical administratorLeo and the primacy of Rome.Taking each of these key elements of Leo's pontifical activities into account, we gain a more balanced picture of the context and contribution of his best-known writings on Christology. This volume offers an affordable introduction to the subject for both teachers and students of ancient and medieval Christianity.

Prosper
20,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

De vocatione omnium gentium ist das früheste Werk der patristischen Literatur, das Gottes universellen Heilswillen zum Thema hat. Es ist in mehrfacher Hinsicht eine Reaktion auf Augustins einflussreiche, doch umstrittene Prädestinationslehre und auf dessen Ansicht, dass Gott nicht alle Menschen zum Heil beruft. Prosper rückt in dieser Schrift von seiner früheren Position eines strengen Verfechters augustinischer Gnadentheologie und eines erbitterten Gegners der anti-augustinischen Theologie in Gallien ab: Der versöhnlichere Ton, den er in De vocatione omnium gentium anschlägt, dürfte wenigstens teilweise auf den Einfluss seines Freundes, Papst Leos des Großen, zurückzuführen sein. ... De vocatione omnium gentium is the first work in patristic literature on the universal salvific will of God and marks a move away from the views of the late Augustine on predestination and a divine salvific will limited to only some human beings. It also marks a move on Prosper's part away from his earlier position as an ardent disciple of Augustine and opponent of the anti-Augustinian movement in Gaul to a theologian open to a milder and more conciliatory position on grace and the salvific will of God. The mellowing of Prosper's earlier hardline Augustinianism may be due at least in part to the influence of his friend, Pope Leo the Great.
