English summary: According to V�tor Hugo Schell, the Book of Acts is a historical work of art. In this volume, his comparative analysis of Paul's Areopagus sermon in Acts 17 and Hellenistic-Jewish historian Flavius Josephus' written observations lead to the discovery of new facets of the Luke-Acts author's literary strategies. The Areopagus speech is juxtaposed to the Bellum and Antiquities speeches, the two longest Josephus representations and the only surviving examples of a limited "subgenus" within early Jewish historiography. Fundamental questions posed by this study are how Josephus' writings facilitate a better understanding of both Paul's Areopagus speech and the Acts' author, and how Josephus is perceived as an ancient historian. The comparison of formal and thematic characteristics makes a specific contribution to interpreting the apostle's famous address to the Athenians and the entire Lucan work.
