Abstract/Summary This chapter by Michael Lattke (The University of Queensland), “Die Herkunft der Christen in der Apologie des Aristides: Baustein zu einem Kommentar” [“The Origin of the Christians in the Apology of Aristides: Contribution to a Commentary”], is one of 23 chapters in the Festschrift for Professor Pauline Allen (Director of the Centre for Early Christian Studies, Australian Catholic University): Christians Shaping Identity from the Roman Empire to Byzantium (Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae, volume 132; Leiden/Boston: Brill 2015) 48–63. At the beginning of the 4th century Eusebius wrote in his Church History (4.3.3): “A man of faith and devoted to our religion, Aristides has also, like Quadratus, left us a defense of the faith addressed to Hadrian. Many still preserve copies of this work also, even to the present day.” [ET Paul L. Maier 1999, 2007, 119] Aristides probably addressed the emperor Antoninus Pius (138–161) and not Hadrian (117–138) in the early 40s of the 2nd century when Christianity was just beginning to shape its own identity within the Graeco–Roman world. Emeritus Professor Lattke is commissioned to write a commentary on the Apology for the Herder series »Kommentar zu frühchristlichen Apologeten«. As work in progress he has contributed a new German translation and a commentary on ch. 2,4a–h. This is preceded by an introduction (1. Einleitung) and a short survey of the structure and content of the Apology (2. Gliederung und Inhalt der Apologie). After the selected bibliography (Bibliographie) at the end of the chapter the reader finds some echnical explanations (Technische Erläuterungen).
