(p.207) Conclusion
Roman Christianity and Roman Stoicism

Runar M. Thorsteinsson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the whole study by giving a brief summary of its main findings, and by drawing some conclusions about the similarities and differences between the moral teachings of Roman Christianity and Roman Stoicism. Subsequent to a summary of each chapter of the study, it is concluded that the comparison has revealed a fundamental similarity between the Christian and Stoic sources in terms of morality or ethics. It is pointed out that this conclusion does not mean that there are no differences whatsoever between the two. But, except for the ethical scope of the moral teachings, these differences are minor variations which do not affect the basic moral agreement between Roman Christianity and Roman Stoicism.

Keywords:   christianity, stoicism, morality, ethics, similarity, difference
