Invitation to Patrology - How the Church Fathers Read the Bible
Anno di pubblicazione:
The work offers a brief introduction to some of the Church Fathers, accompanying it with an anthology of selected texts. Each chapter reproduces the teaching module of a lecture.
The choice of texts has been made according to an exegetical perspective, attempting to emphasize essentially the biblical aspects of the patristic texts that, while representing a natural continuation of Scripture and often contemporary with it, did not enter the canon as uninspired. It is, therefore, a thematic choice, which is one of several ways of presenting this subject.
As indicated in the title, this work is intended to be a start that encourages the student to delve deeper into the reading of patristic texts.
