Lucifer

(362 words)

Author(s): Kundert, Lukas (Basle) | Heim, Manfred (Munich)
[German version] [1] Symbol of the star of Caesar In Latin antiquity, L. refers primarily to the morning star (Greek φωσφόρος/ phōsphóros or ἑωσφόρος/ heōsphóros; Venus; Planets), and in a secondary sense L. also characterizes divine figures. Roman mythology interprets L. as the star of deified Caesar. In Christianity, L. loses the positive connotation: although entirely with reference to 2 Cor 4:6, 2 Petr 1:19 and Apc. 2:28, L. is compared to Christ and therefore at times used as a baptismal name, as a translation of Is. 14:12 (the fallen morning star - heōsphóros: LXX, lucifer: Vulgate)…

The anguish of exile, reflected by the four letters of the spring of 357 recorded by Hilarius of Poitiers led…

Lucifer

(320 words)

Author(s): Kundert, Lukas (Basel) | Heim, Manfred (München)
[English version] [1] Symbol für Stern Caesars bis christl. Satan L. bezeichnet in der lat. Ant. primär den Morgenstern (griech. φωσφόρος/ phōsphóros oder ἑωσφόρος/ heōsphóros; Venus; Planeten), sekundär kennzeichnet L. Göttergestalten. Die röm. Mythologie deutet L. als Stern des vergöttlichten Caesar. Die durchwegs positive Konnotation verliert L. im Christentum: Zwar wird er in Anlehnung an 2 Kor 4,6, 2 Petr 1,19 und Apk 2,28 mit Christus verglichen und deswegen bisweilen als Taufname verwendet, doch als Übers. von Jes 14,12 (der gefallene Morgenstern - heōsphóros: LXX, lucife…
