Scriptural Interpretation in the Fathers: Letter and Spirit
This volume, the proceedings of the Second Patristic Conference (Maynooth, 1993). A panel of Irish scholars examines the use of Scripture by Church Fathers such as Origen, Athanasius, Ephrem the Syrian, the Desert Fathers, Augustine, Eucharius of Lyon and Maximus the Confessor as well as the significance of Patristic exegesis for the contemporary debate on hermeneutics. The influence on Patristic exegesis exercised by the specifically Christian liturgical context is probed as well as the influence of the philosophical and religious world of Hellenism. Several papers are devoted to early Irish exegesis, including the influence of Patristic exegesis on the illumination of the Book of Kells and the Patristic background to Medieval Irish ecclesiastical sources.
