Reading the Church Fathers

by ,

T&T Clark 2011

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In May 2009, a group of scholars met high in the Rocky Mountains above Boulder, Colorado to present, discuss, and argue about their various ways of “reading the Fathers.” The aim was to bring together a diverse collection of scholars who, while having different methodological approaches, would be willing both to offer an example of their own practice and to engage in constructive debate of their own and others’ ways of reading early Christian texts. Rather than advocate any particular method, this book seeks to ask what exactly is meant by “a good reading.” More precisely, through constructive engagement with various answers to that question, it seeks to interrogate the assumptions which underlie contemporary readings of the early Church Fathers.
