Description

Details

"[Young] offers us at once a thorough, synthetic overview of the development of patristic exegesis and a wise and thoughtful assessment of its theological and cultural importance. For its rich detail and for its wider narrative, the book has no competitors."--Brian E. Daley, SJ, University of Notre Dame

In this study of the influence of the late ancient educational system on patristic biblical exegesis, simplistic reductions to discrete methods (moral, typological, allegorical) and schools (Alexandrian, Antiochene) give way to a more nuanced appreciation. Professor Young's lucid study shows how early Christians used the interpretive tools of Greco-Roman culture to build an alternative Christian culture on the basis of the biblical text
