The authors have written a detailed study of how theology 'was done' in the fourth and fifth centuries. They describe the socio-cultural scene of the Christian community in the Constantinian and Theodosian eras.Reseña del editor:
In this, the first of a four-volume series, Father Studer offers a detailed study of how theology was done" in the socio-cultural scene of the Christian community in the Constantinian and Theodosian eras (known as the age of "the Church of the Empire" or the "Imperial Church"). It defines the conditions in which pastors sought to help the faithful understand their religion and develops the thought through which the writers of the post-Nicene Church set out to actualize the Word of God as found in the sacred writings.
Rather than narrowly focusing on major figures and their works, this historical investigation defines the context in which patristic theological inquiries were formed, since what is termed "theology" today only gradually took shape in the early centuries of Christian living. Terminology, literary genres, the Bible, philosophy, heresy, art and architecture, theological currents, and sociopolitical circumstances in addition to people and events are some of the categories this volume explores to integrate in a holistic manner the developing theological methods of the Church.
Translated from Italian, this scholarly work is carefully organized and annotated. Text and chronological tales are included along with a list of abbreviations and a topical index.
Chapters in Part One are: "The Beginnings of Christian Theology," "The Greco-Roman World: Challenge and Response," "Defense of Truth and Attack on Heresy," "The School of Alexandria and Its Fortunes," "A Theology Without Learning," "The East After Origen," "The Beginnings of Theological Reflection in the West," and "The Christian Apocrypha and Their Significance."
Chapters in Part Two are: "The Situation of the Church," ""Instituta Veterum,"" "Concluding Thoughts," ""Eruditio Veterum,"" ""Sapientia Veterum,"" "The Characteristics of Theological Work," "The Bible as Read in the Church," "Synodal Orthodoxy," "The Fathers of the Church," "The Beginnings of the Doctrinal Authority," "A Rational Knowledge of the Bible," "A Search for a Synthesis of Biblical Thought," "Summaries of Christian Doctrine," "The Role of Heresies," and "Reflection on Theological Systematization."
"Basil Studer, OSB, a monk of Engelberg Abbey in Switzerland, is professor of history of ancient Christianity and patrology at the Collegio di San Anselmo and the Instituto Patristico Augustinianum in Rome. He is also the author of "Trinity and Incarnation," also published by The Liturgical Press.""

Descripción Liturgical Press January 1997, 1997. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. At first glance, the title seems so generic, the price so high. What gives? But the editors explain themselves, and a little reflection tends to confirm their claims: there really is no other work that does what this massive project intends to do (this is the first of a projected four volumes covering the entire history of Christian theology). There are eminent and useful histories of doctrine -- Pelikan's The Christian Tradition in five volumes, and in shorter space J.N.D. Kelly's Early Christian Doctrines come to mind. There are histories of Christological development -- Cullmann's for the New Testament period, Grillmeier's Christ in Christian Tradition for the patristic. And of course, there are a multitude of church histories. But the aim of this series is to probe specifically the history of theology -- the theological task itself, in all its complexity and diversity, in the Christian tradition. The scholars involved (really the elite of continental Catholic historical theologians) recite a list of questions that guided their work, a few of which give a more definite idea of what to expect from this volume: How are God and humanity interrelated? How is ''salvation'' understood? How is the Bible used? What relationship is established between prayer, liturgy, and theology? What bearing does theology have on everyday human life and on major choices made by the Church? How early in this history of theology can we find an awareness of method? Space prevents us from listing even the table of contents beyond this bare outline, but highlights include Prosper Grech's examination of the background of theology in Greek philosophy and Judaism, Eric Osborn's summary of multiple dimensions of early theology (as response to pagan and philosophical objections, as the testimony of martyrs, as canon of truth, as scriptural exegesis), Angelo Di Berardino's study of the significance of Christian apocrypha, and the massive contribution of Basil Studer on the fourth and fifth centuries, culminating in his division of theological method into three fundamental types -- patristic, scholastic, and monastic -- and his provocative suggestion that the methodology of the later Fathers was not a slavish repetition, but a critical appropriation, of the work of the Fathers of the fourth-century Golden Age.
