Patristic Hermeneutics: 4th-14th Century, Volume 1

The city of Thessalonica has been a very important crossroads of cultural and educational achievements in Eastern Europe which constitute a rich and distinctive heritage bequeathed to Europe as a whole and to the wider world. Aristotle University is a brilliant example of this heritage in recent times. The present book is one of the latest manifestations of this example coming out of the first and the oldest Faculty of this University since its inception, the Faculty of Theology. Its author, a colleague in the area of Orthodox Patristic Theology, has shown repeatedly, the kind of scholarly research that is needed in the present post-modern era, where theology, philosophy and all sciences are trying to reconstruct their perspectives after the collapse of the 19th and 20th century modernism, which, in spite of its important and revolutionary advancements, created many crises in Church and Society because of its captivity to pluralism and its pursuit of an unbridled and excessive criticism. Christos Arabatzis, utilizing the modern progress in textual, historical and theological research in the area of Patristics, has raised the crucial and fundamental question relating to the criteria of interpretation and ministerpretation of Patristic Theology in Eastern Orthodox perspective.
