1. Nair, Jacquelyn. “NEITHER WITH THE OPINIONS OF THE GREEKS NOR WITH THE CUSTOMS OF THE BARBARIANS”: THE USE OF CLASSIC GREEK IMAGERY IN EARLY CHRISTIAN LITERATURE.

Degree: MA, Comparative Religion, 2013, Miami University

Early Christianity is often conceived as having formed in a vacuum, but in reality the surrounding Greek culture—including the myths and cults—greatly influenced the fledgling religion. This paper seeks to flesh out the ways in which the early Christian communities in the Mediterranean adopted and redeployed Greco-Roman polytheistic symbols for their own purposes. On the one hand, the Christian communities may synthesize Greek and Jewish lore together to reduce a sense of “otherness;” but on the other hand the community may adopt a Greek symbol and redefine it as purely Christian, thus heightening “otherness.” This project seeks to do this by looking at two texts, book one of The Sibylline Oracles and the Greek Apocalypse of Baruch, through a postcolonial and mimetic lens. This paper also suggests implications for future research Advisors/Committee Members: Hanges, James (Advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Religious History; Christianity, Greek Culture, Apocalypse of Baruch, Sibylline Oracles, Rome, Greece, Myth, Phoenix, Early Christian Literature, Post Colonial Theory, Mimetic Thoery

2. Connor, Matthew M. “Baptism on Behalf of the Dead”: 1 Corinthians 15:29 in its Hellenistic Context.

Degree: MA, Religion, 2010, Miami University

This thesis analyzes 1 Corinthians 15:29 – a reference to “Baptism on behalf of the dead” – as an ancient Mediterranean ritual conducted on behalf of the dead. Scholars have been unable to reach a consensus regarding what Paul was referring to in this passage, with many commentators rejecting the most simple and obvious reading of the text. This paper analyzes the text and translation of 15:29, as well as the history of its interpretation before turning to the category of rituals on behalf of the dead in the ancient world. With a cultural predisposition toward ritual interaction between the living and the dead established in the ancient Mediterranean world, vicarious baptism in Corinth is approached using hybridity theory, which acknowledges the religious creativity of the Corinthians, standing in the contact zone between Paul’s Jesus cult and this longstanding Greek tradition of ritual actions performed on behalf of the dead. Advisors/Committee Members: Hanges, James (Committee Chair).

3. Hladky, Kathleen Mahoney. “MODERN DAY HEROES OF FAITH”: THE RHETORIC OF TRINITY BROADCASTING NETWORK AND THE EMERGENT WORD OF FAITH MOVEMENT.

Degree: MA, Religion, 2006, Miami University

This thesis uses Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) as a case study for the exploration of religious broadcasting in America and the emergent Word of Faith movement. TBN is investigated as a challenge to the scholarly and popular understandings of religious broadcasting by considering it as a media-based church facilitating religious experience and community through technology. In order to understand TBN and its theological tenets better, the connection between the Word of Faith movement and Trinity Broadcasting Network is demonstrated through statistical and visual analysis of the flagship TBN program Praise the Lord. Additionally, this thesis examines the unique role of technology in TBN’s end-times theology and in the development of Word of Faith. Finally, the political investments of TBN are explored, paying attention to the way that encoded visual texts subtly point readers to a socially conservative, American, and properly Christian, but distinctively TBN, identity. Advisors/Committee Members: Hanges, James (Advisor).
