Long Description
English summary: Religious fundamentalism is not a phenomenon of modern times. As this conference proceedings shows by highlighting problems of ancient fundamentalism from different perspectives, its roots reach far into antiquity. The Roman Empire appears as an epoch that is especially characterized by a juxtaposition and opposition of religious trends. But the Roman Empire was not only a cultural meeting room. Again and again, conflict between religions came about that were resolved through the use of force. These contributions analyze the background of such confrontations, follow their course, and, where appropriate, discuss their solution. In particular, they analyze the intellectual conditions of radicalization within individual religions. German text. German description: Religioser Fundamentalismus ist kein Phanomen der Neuzeit. Seine Wurzeln reichen bis weit in die Antike - wie dieser Tagungsband zeigt, der antike Fundamentalismusprobleme aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven beleuchtet. Die romische Kaiserzeit erscheint hier als eine Epoche, die in besonderem Masse von einem Neben- und Gegeneinander religioser Stromungen gepragt ist. Das Imperium Romanum war dabei aber nicht nur ein kultureller Begegnungsraum. Immer wieder entstanden Konflikte zwischen den Religionen, die auch gewaltsam ausgetragen wurden. Die Beitrage fragen nach den Hintergrunden solcher Konfrontationen, deren Verlauf und - gegebenenfalls - deren Losung. Insbesondere analysieren sie die geistesgeschichtlichen Voraussetzungen von Radikalisierungen innerhalb einzelner Religionen.
