Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names of early Christian authors, Jewish authors and Greek-Latin authors, relevant to the book on Makarius, das Thomasevangelium und das Lied von der Perle. Macarius has indirectly great importance for today's world. Subjectivity and interiority, which have maintained Pietism and are found in Macarius, are used to set individualism for the modern concept of personality. Macarius is heretic and profoundly influences the orthodoxy in their spirituality. Werner Jaeger has discovered the complete version of the treatise De Instituto Christiano by Gregory of Nyssa. This representation of the object and purpose of monasticism is compared with the unpublished letter of Macarius the Great, to partially show verbal agreements with Gregory versions. The effect of the Spirit is a remarkable view that only the religious experience enables the unity and identity of the human personality. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: early Christian; Gregory versions; human personality; Macarius; Pietism; spirituality
