    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookAfter reading two other English translations of the Heliand and looking into the original text I've finally come to the conclusion that this is the best English version available and the easiest and cheapest to obtainThe Heliand was written in the 9th century and is essentially a retelling of the Gospel story Written in the Old Saxon language and using Germanic alliterative verse forms similar to to Beowulf and the Hildebrandslied The narrative itself places Jesus and his disciples firmly in the setting of the Germanic heroic world Jesus and the disciples are portrayed as a chieftain and his war band complete with swords and shields and Viking ships The poem also uses Saxon phrases such as nazarethburg and concepts from Germanic pagan beliefs such as secret runes sacred groves and fate Instead of crucifiction Jesus is hung from a tree echoing the Norse m

    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookThis fascinating work brings into readable modern English the oddball Saxon gospel which renders the Christian gospels into a narrative form suitable for the heathen Germanic Saxon peoples lately defeated by Charlemagne and in sore need of conversion Suffice to say the peace loving vibe of the Christ of Matthew was difficult for the Saxon to grok steeped as they were in well over a thousand years of religious beliefs and practices that extolled the warrior virtues of courage and generosity to one's friends and comrades and had little regard for mercy or compassion So here we have the ministry of Jesus presented in Saxon terms with the Magi desc

    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookAn extraordinary localization of the Gospel written in Old Saxon and translated by Georgetown Prof G Ronald Murphy Its successors are obvious from tribal localizations by Victorian missionaries to recent paraphrases like The Message and The Book The musical Godspell is its clear descendant both in name and in spirit I wonder if other cultures created a similar version of the story of JesusThis version of the gospel is nervy in its dismissal of the poor yet it's exciting to read a unified if editorialized account of all four gospels Highly recommended to anyone who likes Beowulf and the Gospel of Mark

    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookA good translation that does the best it can to highlight the Old Saxon's author's adaptation of the Gospel to Germanic heroic ideals Still Murphy's footnotes explaining what everything might have meant in the context of the Frankish conversion of the Saxons become a bit too much And if you know the story it's difficult to slog through a prose English translation of an Old Saxon poetic version that stays pretty close to the Latin original

    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookAn English translation of a medieval Saxon translationadaptation of the gospel story The translator's notes help to explain the strange differences we find the way that certain phrases forms of expression digressions and changes helped to make the story and its theological content comprehensible to a medieval Germanic people Its style can be accurately described as what it would sound like if the Vikings told the story of the life of Christ in their own style

    Kindle The Heliand eBook µ º tyrakel.de heliand mobile, The Heliand eBookA delightful excursion into the culture of 9th century Anglo Saxons The familiar Gospel tale told as a Beowulf esque epic is rooted and transcendent Murphy's translation is strongly poetic but very readable and engaging His footnotes are quite helpful though occasionally too speculative
