«In principio period il Logos»: fin dal primo versetto il vangelo di Giovanni abbandona lo stile descrittivo e parabolico degli altri vangeli e affronta l. a. questione della divinità di Cristo, con un linguaggio teologico denso di suggestioni platoniche. Una cifra che ne fa il testo chiave della mistica cristiana e lo accomuna ai vangeli gnostici, alla letteratura ermetica e alla matrice filosofico-religiosa del mondo ellenistico, molto più che ai restanti libri del canone neotestamentario.
Prendendo le distanze dalla tradizione delle edizioni devozionali, Marco Vannini adotta una prospettiva critica ispirata a criteri di correttezza filologica e storica ed evidenzia tutta l. a. problematica interna alla genesi e alla piena comprensione del 4to vangelo.
Marco Vannini (1948) si occupa di mistica cristiana, della quale ha edito alcuni autori fondamentali, primo fra tutti Meister Eckhart, e alla quale ha dedicato numerosi studi. Tra i suoi ultimi lavori: Inchiesta su Maria (2013, con Corrado Augias) e L’Anticristo. Storia e mito (2015).
