Vangeli gnostici

Mondo antico e mondo moderno

Il tema del parallelismo tra il mondo ellenistico e il mondo moderno (sull'argomento si ricordino  in particolare  i lavori di Jonas[ IV 2002 ]  [cfr. in proposito il citato vol. di Culianu]  e di Dodds)  viene  sviluppato anche in un aricolo di  David Ulansey, CULTURAL TRANSITION AND SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION: FROM ALEXANDER THE GREAT TO CYBERSPACE, in The Vision Thing: Myth, Psyche, and Politics in the World, edited by Thomas Singer (London and New York: Routledge, 2000) pp. 213-31 ( http://www.well.com/user/davidu/cultural.html ) di cui riporto un breve brano che incomincia con una significativa citazione di F. Cumont:

"Let us suppose that in modern Europe the faithful had deserted the Christian churches to worship Allah or Brahma, to follow the precepts of Confucius or Buddha, or to adopt the maxims of the Shinto; let us imagine a great confusion of all the races of the
world in which Arabian mullahs, Chinese scholars, Japanese bonzes, Tibetan lamas and Hindu pundits would be preaching
fatalism and predestination... a confusion in which all those priests would erect temples of exotic architecture in our cities and celebrate their disparate rites therein. Such a dream, which the future may perhaps realize, would offer a pretty accurate picture of the religious chaos in which the ancient world was struggling before the reign of Constantine." (Franz Cumont, Oriental Religions in Roman Paganism (New York: Dover Publications, 1956) pp. 196-7.
"Such a dream, which the future may perhaps realize...." [commenta Ulansey] As I sit in front of my computer at the turn of the millennium, aware that in any large American or European city I can expect to find a Tibetan Buddhist temple, a Sufi retreat center, a Zen meditation hall, the office of a Chinese acupuncturist, a communal home of Hari Krishna devotees, and a store selling the visionary art of tribal shamans, it is surprising to realize that as recently as 1906 the great Belgian classicist Franz Cumont could only "dream" of such a future. More significant, though, is the fact that most of Cumont's contemporaries would not have been able even to dream of such a future. For Cumont was able to imagine the possibility of the global culture of our own time only because he was knowledgeable about a previous epoch when a remarkably similar situation existed.
The epoch to which I refer is that which is usually called the "Hellenistic" age: the time period that began with the conquests of Alexander the Great in the late fourth century B.C.E. While the Hellenistic age as a strictly chronological division is often understood as coming to an end with the emergence of the Roman empire toward the end of the first century B.C.E., historians also recognize that the culture of the Roman empire was in many ways merely a continuation of Hellenistic cultural patterns. Thus the expression "Hellenistic Culture" is often used to name the large cultural system encompassing the Mediterranean and Near East from the time of Alexander the Great until the Roman empire's conversion to Christianity: as it is often put, "from Alexander to Constantine."

Corpus Fontium Manichaeorum   (THIS SITE IS UNDER FURTHER CONSTRUCTION)  IV 2002
This project, sponsored by UNESCO and the UAI (Union Academique Internationale), is a proposed publication in 60+ volumes of Manichaean texts from Egypt and Central Asia, edited by Professor Sam Lieu and international collaborators.  The Manichaeans, who were disciples of Mani, the third century AD "apostle of Jesus Christ", spread from Mesopotamia both West and East across the Silk Road.  The texts studied are multilingual - Latin, Greek, Coptic, Syriac, Middle Iranian, Turkish and Chinese.
