The Impact of Scripture in Early Christianity
par Jan Den Boeft, M. L. Van Poll

One of the most conspicuous innovations of early Christianity within Greco-Roman culture is its reliance upon a collection of authoritative texts. The ultimate author of Scripture was thought to be God Himself, whose will could and should be sought and found in these holy writings. For this reason it is not surprising that very soon these texts not only became the object of careful attention and scholarly study, but also put their stamp on the various forms and manifestations of early Christian life, such as martyrdom, asceticism, liturgy, art, and literature.
This multifarious influence of Scripture is the subject of The Impact of Scripture in Early Christianity. It contains fourteen contributions, predominantly in English, by Belgian and Dutch scholars which have been gathered in a thematically ordered collection.

Contes II
par Mirbeau Octave

J’ouvris les yeux et je regardai autour de moi. Un homme était penché sur mon lit ; près de l’homme, une femme, coiffée d’un bonnet à grandes ailes blanches, tenait en ses mains des compresses humides. La chambre vibrait, claire et simple, avec ses murs tapissés d’un papier gris pâle à fleurettes roses. Sur une table recouverte d’une grosse serviette de toile écrue, je remarquai divers objets inconnus, des rangées de fioles et un vase de terre brune plein de morceaux de glace.
