Abstract

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Early Christian Identity A Review Article Bengt Holmberg (Hrsg.), Exploring Early Christian Identity (WUNT 226), Tübingen (Mohr Siebeck) 2008, VIII u. 205 S., Ln. EUR 64,-; ISBN 978-3-16-149674-5. Bengt Holmberg/Mikael Wmninge (Hrsg.), Identity Fonnation in the New Testament (WUNT 227), Tübingen (Mohr Sieb eck) 2008, xn u. 341 S., Ln.

Early in the twentieth century, this debate focused on the origin of various beliefs of the early Christ-movement. This one-sided focus on ideas led to later sociological and anthropological studies that focused more exclusively on societal patterns and developments. In some ways, historical criti­ cism became identified with these sociological concerns, while beliefs and theology were dismissed as ideology. Currently, the recognition that social factors and ideol­ ogy interact closely in one historical process is quickly gaining ground, fuelled by advances in cognitive and social psychology. As a result, the topic of "identity" rose in prominence in psychology, as it did in biblical studies: a wide survey of journals shows that the number of artides with "identity" in the tide nearly doubled
