Instituciones divinas. Libros IV-VII (Biblioteca Clásica - download pdf or read online

By Lactancio,E. Sánchez Salor,José Javier Iso,José Luis Moralejo

Toda l. a. obra conservada de Lactancio corresponde a los angeles segunda fase de su vida, tras su conversión al cristianismo, en los angeles que aspira a sustituir l. a. sabiduría pagana por los angeles nueva fe, partiendo de supuestos racionales. Su gran originalidad live en conservar el legado romano junto a los angeles afirmación de l. a. nueva fe.
Lucio Cecilio (o Celio) Firmiano Lactancio (245-325 d.C.), que ha sido llamado «el Cicerón cristiano», compuso las Institutiones divinae (denominadas a su vez por san Jerónimo «un río de elocuencia ciceroniana») para mostrar que los angeles doctrina cristiana period un sistema lógico que se podía defender con los angeles razón además de con los angeles fe. Las dirigió a lectores paganos cultos y, más que a las Escrituras, recurre para ilustrar sus tesis a argumentos de escritores paganos. En efecto, Lactancio es (como Tertuliano, Ambrosio, Jerónimo, Paulino de Nola, Prudencio y san Agustín) un escritor cristiano de los primeros siglos, de formación clásica en retórica y cultura, en el que se cumple los angeles paradoja de utilizar estos recursos literarios y conceptuales para extender los angeles nueva doctrina frente, precisamente, a l. a. literatura y l. a. religión paganas.
De los siete libros de las Instituciones divinas, los tres primeros son una crítica del politeísmo y de los angeles filosofía romana; después, Lactancio procede a argumentar que sólo l. a. fe cristiana es capaz de aunar filosofía y religión. A partir de esta concepción basic, Lactancio analiza l. a. notion cristiana de justicia y moralidad y el culto, y trata cuestiones esenciales como el bien supremo y l. a. inmortalidad del alma, para concluir instando a abrazar l. a. nueva religión. Más argumentativo que polemista, Lactancio se dirige a los angeles razón del lector, al que no pretende abrumar con principios de autoridad incontrovertibles.
