2017 (English)In: Shadowy Characters and Fragmentary Evidence: The Search for Early Christian Groups and Movements / [ed] Joseph Verheyden, Tobias Nicklas, and Elisabeth Hernitscheck, Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2017, 201-231 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Scholarship on ancient works of literature that survive only in quotations, such as Heracleon’s hypomnēmata (“commentary” or “notes”), often presuppose that the quotations dependably transmit the actual words of the quoted author, thereby ignoring the mediation and the agenda of the quoting author. This article demonstrates that ancient authors frequently adapted quotations to their new contexts, and develops a methodology for evaluating the extent of adaptations made in Origen’s quotations from Heracleon’s hypomnēmata
