Theodoret of Cyrus

Early Christian Studies 2

By Hill, Robert C (Author)
$33.00 AUD

Three volumes of Theodoret of Cyrus's commentaries on the Prophets. Volume One includes commentaries on Jeremiah, Baruch and the Book of Lamentations. Volume Two includes a commentary on the prophet Ezekiel. Volume Three includes a commentary on the Twelve Prophets. "It has been observed that "the Antiochenes were fascinated by prophecy" (Frances M. Young). The last of the great biblical commentators of the school of Antioch, Theodoret wrote works on all the prophets during his years as bishop of Cyrus. Though caught up in the theological currents in the period between the Church councils of Ephesus in 431 and Chalcedon in 451, he could claim in a letter late in that period to have commented on "all the prophets, the psalter and the apostle." Fortunately, all Theodoret's commentaries have survived, probably owing to his proverbial moderation that attracted none of the hostility responsible for the loss of works of some of his Antiochene predecessors. His style of commentary, the hermeneutics of his school and the distinctive Antioch text of the Old Testament are of particular interest to modern scholars and readers. Volume Three includes a commentary on the Twelve Prophets."
