Chapter Summary

∑υλλογίςεσθαι, was introduced by Herodotus but does not seem to have been very frequent in the Classical period. Those who applied it were the philosophers, because they gave an extra, technical sense to the verb: in Plato's writings the word is found already fourteen times, while Aristotle uses it at least 48 times according to Bonitz. In the Hellenistic period the verb seems to have been favourite with Polybius and Philodemus. Within this general picture it may cause some surprise that the verb does occur at all in the not so extensive New Testament. Against the Classical and Hellenistic background συλλογίςεσθαι at Luke xx 5 does not seem to offer anything difficult or divergent. This chapter demonstrates that the senses as given by Bauer are much too weak in general and certainly unfit to circumscribe the sense of the verb in all the passages adduced, including Luke xx 5.

Keywords: Bauer; Hellenistic period; Herodotus; Luke xx 5; New Testament
