Wie beispielsweise die heftig umstrittene Regensburger Rede Papst Benedikt XVI. aus dem Jahre 2006 zeigt, spielt diese Kategorie bis heute eine zentrale Rolle in theologischen wie althistorischen Konzeptionen von Christentum. Meist wird mit dem Begriff eine Transformation des Christentums durch die hellenistisch-romische Kultur im globalisierten Imperium Romanum bezeichnet. Christoph Markschies analysiert die Geschichte des Begriffs und der damit verbundenen, hochst unterschiedlichen Definitionen wie Vorstellungen, informiert ueber die teilweise vollkommen vergessenen Vorgeschichten (beispielsweise im franzosischen Renaissancehumanismus) und macht am Ende einen Vorschlag, wie der Begriff heute trotz einer nicht unproblematischen Vorgeschichte noch sinnvoll verwendet werden kann.
