Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the importance of patronage and/or clientele relationship for the community in Philippine. It examines the community in Philippine as emancipated clientele. The investigation of the so-called Thanks letter Phil 4.10 to 20 showed a central moment of the relationship between Paul and the Philippian community. The Roman patronage and/or clientele relationship was introduced as a complex social relationship and represented their powerless and socio-political importance. The clientele relationship developed in the Graeco-Roman world as the basic organizational form between social unequals, but evolved into a social relationship whose internal organization could lead to self-conscious solidarity of the clientele. The ratio of the Philippians to Paul corresponds structurally to the clientele relationship. The chapter finally discusses the conflict with the Roman environment. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: clientele relationship; Graeco-Roman world; patronage relationship; Philippian community
