Христологический мир ап. Павла как показатель древнехристианского сознания
The article shows the importance of studying religion as a special state of consciousness for general religious study. Such approach allows to focus on examining specifics of religion, on details of the believer's lifeworld without turning to the world as it is. The examples of text, body and law demonstrate christological determinacy of the Apostle Paul's lifeworld and its possibility in that capacity. The world is not given Paul in itself, but is experienced him in the spectral tones of the feelings of passion, love and death. Christ is passion and love embodied as the predetermining structure of consciousness. The author registers the difference between the early Christian religious feeling and the modern one, the difference between ancient cognition (its continual and open nature) and modern cognition.
