Abstract

According to the early Christian tradition the author of the third gospel in the New Testament had been a medical doctor educated in the greek tradition from Antiochia (in present day Syria). He was known as Luke without any evidence of his being a historical figure. Luke takes account of people without representation in the social framework of his time, particularly children. Beginning with 4 passages of the so-called „history of childhood“ (Lk 1,5 - 2,52), anthropological questions about childhood will be discussed. The questions of generation, pregnancy and birth as well as the question concerning the acceptance of the child into the human community will be considered. From a philosophical perspective, the cultural context will be investigated to show the significance of the relationship between the early christian community and the hellenistic approaches of the stoic philosophers and gnostic thinkers as well as the judaic tradition. As a specific problem the unification of the soul with the body in the child will be considered, that is to say the question how the child becomes an adult among human beings. The question concerning the relationship between the body and the soul requires that the theological dimension be brought into consideration so that anthropological and theological perspectives in the late hellenistic concept are to be thought of as a unity.
