Michael Schramm: Platonikerzitate in Kyrills Contra Iulianum: Argumentieren mit Zitaten

Cyril of Alexandriaʼs Against Julian is directed against Julian the Emperorʼs Against the Christians. One of its essential features consists in refuting Julianʼs Neoplatonic arguments by using quotations of Platonic school authors from Plato to famous Neoplatonic authors, e.g. Plotinus and Porphyrius. It will be examined how Cyril used the quotations, which role they play in the reasoning and which sources Cyril deals with.
