Synopsis

English summary: Bernhard Lang presents the first readable translation of an early Christian novel dating from the time of the Roman empire. The novel creates fascinating scenes of Peter confronting an audacious opponent. This opponent, Simon Magus, pretends to be able to do miracles like Peter, and has already convinced many Christians. In Rome, Peter und Simon compete publicly. Peter is able to do greater miracles than Simon. With this victory, he wins back the congregation to Jesus Christ. But when Peter preaches chastity to married Roman women, he meets with strong opposition - and is crucified. German description: Der fruhchristliche Roman aus der romischen Kaiserzeit entwirft eindrucksvolle Szenen, in denen sich der Apostel Petrus mit einem verwegenen Gegner auseinandersetzt. Der Gegner, Simon der Magier, gibt vor, wie Petrus Wunder wirken zu konnen, und hat bereits viele Christen abspenstig gemacht. In Rom treten die beiden in einem offentlichen Wettstreit gegeneinander an. Petrus kann die grosseren Wunder wirken und so uber seinen Gegner siegen; dadurch gewinnt er die zu dem Zauberer ubergelaufene Gemeinde wieder fur Christus. Doch als Petrus romische Frauen zur Keuschheit auch in der Ehe anstiftet, regen sich Gegenkrafte - und Petrus landet am Kreuz. Bernhard Lang erlautert den Roman und hat ihn erstmals allgemeinverstandlich ubersetzt.
