|Title:||The Acts of the Apostles and Ecclesia in Africa: An intertextual inquiry.|
|Authors:||Lerotholi, Gerard T.|
|Abstract:||This present work consists of six points: (1) Nature and Scope of the thesis; (2) Problem and Method (first part of chapter one); (3) Research Hypothesis (second part of chapter one); (4) The use of quotations from Acts in Ecclesia in Africa (chapters three and four); (5) The allusions to Acts in Ecclesia in Africa (chapter five); Finally, the synthesis and Evaluation of the results of the Research (chapter six). The present study is hermeneutical and interdisciplinary in nature since it deals with the applied interpretation of Scripture (Acts) in a magisterial document (Ecclesia in Africa) and the meaning that results thereof. The thesis is a research inquiry, analysis and evaluation of the intertextual links between the Acts of the Apostles and Ecclesia in Africa. First and foremost, the work consists in identifying these intertextual links and secondly in analyzing and evaluating their significance in Acts and then in Ecclesia in Africa. This research is a pioneering work in the intertextual reading of Acts and Ecclesia in Africa in a way that has not been undertaken before. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)|
