devoted to Antonio Orbe’s (1917-2003) scientific and literary work, in order to stress the
significance of his scholarly contribution, most of it published in Spanish, his native tongue. A
former student of P. Courcelle, he was a teacher of patristic studies at the Gregorian
University of Rome for a long time. In the meantime, he dedicated himself to the study of the

REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
early Church’s doctrines and interpretations – mainly from the second and third centuries –
through its different currents: Valentinian Gnosticism, Irenaeus of Lyon’s Asian theology,
and the Alexandrian schools. He has left an enormous work, which offers the innovation of
conceiving a plural Christianity, as well as the originality of associating the dogmatic
representations with the archaic lectures of scriptural texts (most of them gospels). This
paper tries out a synthesis of his work and suggests a selective bibliography» (p. 8)].

patristischen Projektes (1936), ZKTh 126 (2004) 111-130.

7. Werkgenetische Wirkmächtigkeit. 8. Kirchenväter als Lehrmeister: ein Weg in die Zukunft

1999, traces the patristic concept of the origin of the church from the side wound of the
crucified Christ to its biblical foundations. Rahner calls the study an exercise in “patristic
exegesis” and part of the “history of patristic Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion”. This essay
describes the place of “E latere Christi” within the horizon of the catholic renewal movements
of the early 20th century» (p. 130)].

[Abstract: «This contribution appreciates the achievement of Hans-Martin Schenke (19292002) in teaching and research, especially with regard to his work in the New Testament at
the Faculty of Theology in Berlin. It also refers to his research in Gnosticism and Nag
Hammadi texts and to his role as a founder and leader of the Berlin Working Group for
Coptic-Gnostic Writings. These texts show as well as the personal dimension of his long-term
work» (p. 63)].

[Balthasar’s patristic works: an overview. Programmatic essays. Anthologies and translations.
Treatment of particular patristic authors: Gregory of Nyssa; Maximus the Confessor;
Irenaeus; Augustine; The Areopagite. Conclusion. Notes. – Dalla Conclusione: «It seems to be
no accident that much of Balthasar’s engagement with the Fathers took the form of
thoughtfully arranged anthologies of excerpts. Following the example of earlier anthologies of
ancient texts arranged according to the dogmatic outlines of the scholastic “tracts”, as well as
that of Przywara and others, Balthasar has gathered passages that represent what he regards
as the great theological ideas of an earlier age, arranged in a sequence that mirrors his own
sense of the march of intellectual history. But the narrative in this scheme is imposed from
without, so leaves the authors themselves as largely two-dimensional figures, patches in a
modern quilt. Like a collector of paintings from every period, he has assembled an
extraordinary gallery of theological positions, arguments, influences, and connections; but
because the collection is such an eclectic one, and the arrangement so carefully controlled by
a larger intellectual programme, it tells us, in the end, more about the taste and
understanding of the collector than it does about the artists and their work» (pp. 202-203)].

Enoch in ancient Christian texts (Epistle of Barnabas, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, the
Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs) and argues that some Greek versions existed in ancient
Christian communities. The codex Panopolitanus version (G) is one of the testimonia of the
different forms of Greek Enoch. This can be observed also in the excerpta transmitted by
Syncellus. Syncellus’ version belongs to the legacy of a different Greek version compared to
Enoch’s one. To be sure, Syncellus did not read the text from Enoch, but read these excerpta
in Annianus and Panodorus’ works. All these testimonia (together with the excerpts attested in
the Epistle of Barnabas, Celsus-Origen and the Testament of the Twelve Patriarchs...) clearly
demonstrate that the different versions of Greek Enoch cannot be read as variants of the text
of G, but rather as parallel versions of the Greek Enoch, or as part of the Enochic diaspora
tradition» (p. 72)].

l’exégète se livre d’entrée de jeu, sans pouvoir ignorer les implications de ce sens obvie...; –
scripturaire et théologique, lorsqu’il rapproche la réflexion sur la liberté que propose l’apologue
des “fils” raconté par Jésus de la grande construction théologique de Paul, opposant la forme
du Fils et celle de l’esclave; – littéraire et morale enfin, dans la succession d’une puissante
construction symbolique autour des thèmes de la mer et du poisson d’abord, et d’un tableau

consistant. Textes. – «Partis de la question du moment de l’animation, tout de suite contraints
de la compliquer par celle de l’origine de l’âme créatienne ou traducienne, nous avons abouti
à la compréhension sans cesse plus dense des composants et donc du composé humain.
Chaque époque a apporté sa contribution à cette construction séculaire. La réaction au
gnosticisme produit la thèse traducienne de Tertullien et celle, moins origénienne que l’on
croit, du réservoir des âmes. Le mouvement des idées aux ères constantiniennes et
théodosiennes poussent à des vastes synthèses: deux d’entre elles ont occupé le centre de cet
exposé. Mais rien ne peut arrêter la recherche, notamment autour des apories reconnues.
L’apport de plus en plus conscient et réfléchi de la pensée d’Aristote a permis d’élucider les
apories, sans pour autant confondre le moins du monde ce qui relève de la forme et ce qui
relève de la matière, les deux instruments de pensée ne se comprenant jamais que l’un par
l’autre, tout comme l’acte et la puissance» (pp. 314-315)].

[Némésius d’Émèse. L’articulation entre unité et dualité. L’exemple humain est-il pertinent
pour anlyser le rapport du Verbe aux passions humaines? – «Au IVe siècle, deux christologies,
celle des ariens et celle d’Apollinaire, recourent à cette analogie, dans des intentions
différentes, mais elles aboutissent toutes deux à définir le Christ comme une seule nature
(miva fuvsi"). Le recours à l’analogie anthropologique joue ici un rôle décisif, puisque la
composition du Christ est conçue sur le modèle de celle de l’homme. Ainsi, en vertu du
principe aristotélicien selon lequel une substance ne peut être composée d’une pluralité de
substances, il ne peut y avoir dans le Christ deux natures complètes, mais seulement une
humanité incomplète que vient compléter le Verbe. Étant donné qu’aux IVe et Ve siècles, ces
deux christologies ont été abondamment refutées, je voudrais étudier ici à quelles conditions
cette analogie a pu conserver la faveur de nombre de théologiens dans les siècles suivants. Il
me semble que le tournant décisif qui a permis de préciser les limites de cette analogie est la
controverse nestorienne. Or ce qui est remarquable, c’est qu’aussi bien les antiochiens que les
alexandrins ont recouru à cette analogie, même si les antiochiens l’ont fait avec une réticence
de plus en plus grande. Je tenterai donc de cerner quelles sont les caractéristiques de l’union
de l’âme et du corps qui ont paru valides pour illustrer l’union christologique» (pp. 453-454)].

[Introduction. Divine deception. Gregory of Nyssa and the fishhook. Pseudo-Athanasius’s
Homily on the Passion and the Cross. Seduction in the garden. The poetics of disguise. – «After
an introductory discussion of the notion of “divine deception”, the following study turns to a
consideration of two works by Gregory of Nyssa (the Catechetical Discourse, and the Sermon on
the Three Days between Christ’s Death and Resurrection), followed by an analysis of the Homily
on the Passion and the Cross attributed to Athanasius of Alexandria. These fourth-century
texts, along with others from across the late antique period that will be discussed in this
paper, reconfigure the Passion Narrative as a divine strategy cunningly calculated to deceive
the devil» (p. 141)].

was believed that the parable of the tares warned the Church against heresy, that is, warned
the ecclesiastical leadership in power, in a particular moment, against any possible political
competition. (...). Rather than experimenting with other interpretations, those involved in the
fight use the parable in order to discredit their political opponents by accusing them of being
tares sowed by the Enemy in the Field of the Church, and therefore worthy of being pull out.
But the success of this accusation depends on those strong powers – first of all the emperor –
whose opinion decides the fate of the conflicting parties. This situation makes the parable an
extremely dangerous weapon to rely on. In fact, any change at the top of the Empire can
cause a corresponding change of judgment criteria, so that whoever was formerly deemed to
be wheat can afterwards be regarded as tares. Notwithstanding this, hardly anybody, during
this period, manages to forget the prevailing exegesis: even when someone resorts to the
parable not to attack party enemies but to preach tolerance. Anyone who does not accept
this – like the Messalians, according to whom the tares are not the enemies acting in the
public arena, but in the inner man, i.e. the passions of the soul – remains a minority, which
the ecclesiastical institution looks on suspiciously. Because interpreting the parable, and
declaring to know how to tell the good grass from the bad one, means considering oneself able
to lead the Church as foretold by Jesus – that is to claim authority, whether political or
spiritual, over society. This assumption which, if not held by the institution itself, becomes a
threat which must be neutralized» (p. 172). Numerosi riferimenti ai Padri Cappadoci].

developed by cognitive semantics, that conceptual metaphors tend to be systematic and
coherent, we will connect three processes of conceptual transformation in Late Antiquity, which
have apparently no mutual relation. Only in the frame of the conversion image their internal
coherence appears as evident: the obligation to choose between different religious options, the
construction of a symmetrical dualism between God and Evil, and the revolutionary idea that
the new is superior to the ancient. The analysis is exemplified with some texts from Christian
apologists and their pagan counterparts, especially those belonging to the protreptic genre»

[The western Fathers before Origen. The early Syriac Fathers. The Alexandrian and
Palestinian Fathers. The Antiochene Fathers. Bibliographical Note. – «Many of the early
western Fathers share with the Syriac authors a more spontaneous use of Jewish/Rabbinic
midrash and midrashic methods, in that there was in these circles a certain continuity with
Jewish antecedents. Origen, however, while certainly an heir of the Judeo-Christian tradition,
introduced systematic Greek methods into the study of the Bible on an unprecedented scale,
and his influence proved to be decisive. (...) Origen’s introduction of scientific methods led to
a more detached approach to Jewish exegesis, and consequently a more technical evaluation
of midrashic material. This aspect of his scholarship was refined by his successors, especially
Jerome. Indeed, it is the critical yet to a surprising degree respectful approach found among
the Alexandrian and Palestinian Fathers, as well as the impressive quantity of references to
Rabbinic exegesis in their writings, that constitutes the outstanding feature of patristic use of
midrash. It is therefore natural that the segment devoted to these Fathers will be the most
extensive. Finally, the Antiochene exegetical movement is often best understood as a reaction
to Alexandrian tendencies, and it is no different with respect to the present topic. In fact, the
differences in attitude to Rabbinic midrash may probably be regarded as an additional proof
of the divergence between the Alexandrian and Antiochene “schools”, a divergence that
some have attempted to de-emphasize» (p. 23)].

This kind of illustration ( diagravmmata) could not only be found in different literary genres,

Platonic Academy at Athens. Other Gnostic diagrams like the famous illustrations of the
“First Book of Jeû” in the Oxford Brucianus should also be compared with scientific diagrams
like the diagravmmata in the commentary on the Timaeus of Calcidius. The “scientific level”
of such attempts of Christians to reach standards of their time was in some parts more or less
low, as can be seen on the famous illustrations of the Christian Topography of Cosmas
Indicopleustes compared with John Philoponus. Perhaps it is possible also to interpret Mani’s
“picture-book” (eijkwvn) within this framework» (p. 120)].

conclusive”: «Possiamo ricavare, provvisoriamente, dall’analisi fatta che il tema delle bestie,
soprattutto bestie feroci, come trasformazioni demoniache è quello prevalente nella maggior
parte di queste biografie, ancora legate in gran parte alla spiritualità martiriale, che era
fortemente incentrata sulla concezione del martirio come combattimento col diavolo e che
tendeva a trasfigurare in questo senso il combattimento concreto dei martiri con le belve
nell’anfiteatro. Il fenomeno è più evidente nella VA, ma persiste ancora nelle Vite di Girolamo,
specialmente nelle ultime, pur con accentuazioni diverse, per cui, mentre nella VA risulta
fortemente sottolineata, a questo proposito, la potenza di Dio, nella VH è maggiormente in primo
piano quella dell’asceta. Invece la VP sembra ispirata soprattutto dall’intento di sostituire al
carattere drammatico e serio dello scontro la certezza di una vittoria già acquisita, e quindi
presenta soltanto bestie domate e pacifiche, in un’atmosfera serena e illuminata dal sorriso di
Paolo. Ma sarà proprio la VP che avrà il successo maggiore nella tradizione successiva
contribuendo a creare il luogo comune delle bestie che convivono in armonia col santo» (p. 415)].

REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
cristiana fu senza dubbio Origene; la sua vita di studio, di ricerca, la sua immensa opera non
potevano fare a meno della città con le sue risorse, le biblioteche, la presenza di patroni
potenti; tuttavia, come è stato osservato, nelle sue opere si respira l’aria del deserto e della
spiritualità monastica. Origene è l’esponente più importante di quel gruppo di intellettuali
cristiani che fra II e III secolo cercarono di comprendere il cristianesimo a partire dalle filosofie
ellenistiche. Essi interpretano la santità alla luce delle idee platoniche, medioplatoniche, stoiche
che tutte convergevano nell’ideale del saggio, come colui che è riuscito a liberarsi dalle passioni.
In tale prospettiva, la santità coincide con la progressiva liberazione dell’Io razionale e divino dai
legami con il mondo sensibile e con il corpo, per raggiungere l’unione con la divinità, in un
processo in cui l’elemento etico è inscindibile da quello conoscitivo» (pp. 453-454)].

PRZYSZYCHOWSKA M., The Dual Creation Concept as Attempt to Explain the Origin of the Sensual
World (Philo of Alexandria, Origen, Gregory of Nyssa) (pol.), Vox Patrum 23/44-45 (2003) 203-219.
[Summary: «It seems there could be no connection of the biblical truth on the subject of
creation with philosophy, which has never known the idea of creation. Nonetheless, several
attempts have been made to unify them. The article presents three that are most renowed: of
Philo, Origen and Gregory of Nyssa. They have one important feature in common: under the
influence of Platonism, all three speak of dual creation. However, there are also some
differences between their thoughts. Each of them sees different reality made in the first
creation: Philo – the idea of humanity, Origen – souls, Gregory of Nyssa – human nature.
They differ also when speaking of the cause of the second creation. Philo seems to see the
case in ontology: he asserts that some co-creators were the authors of evil and passion in man.
Origen maintains that the second creation was connected to the sin of souls, committed in
pre-existence. As a result of the fall soul received earthly bodies. Gregory also speaks of the
effect of the fall, which was the cause of the second creation, but he thinks that the creation
had been made in the prevision of the fall. There is also small dissimilarity in treating the
corporeity of the reality created in the first creation and the state of Adam before the original
sin» (p. 220)].

Alexandria, 274-275; Origen, 275-277; Mani, 277-279; The «Catholic» Apocalypse of Paul, 279281. – Dalle Conclusioni: «Only some authors solve Paul’s ambiguity as to whether his rapture
took place in or out of the body. Irenaeus deemed it possible that Paul’s body was part of the
experience. The Gnostic Apocalypse suggests that the apostle ascended without his body,
whereas its Catholic counterpart says that he was lifted up in his body. (...) The Mani Codex
also seems to read that Paul was caught up without his body. Origen only notes Paul’s own
ambiguity without explaining it. Probably he would have said that Paul was caught up in a
spiritual body. As for the location of the third heaven and of paradise, different views came to
light. In the Gnostic Apocalypse paradise is left out, and the third heaven is one of ten.
Irenaeus shares the traditional view that there are seven heavens, and appears to locate
paradise in the third heaven. Clement’s cosmology is similar to the Gnostic view that there are
higher spheres above the seventh heaven; he locates paradise above the third heaven. Origen
seems not much interested in this question. In his allusion to Paul’s rapture he can easily omit
paradise, sometimes he seems to distinguish between the third heaven and paradise,
sometimes he locates it on the earth that is situated in heaven. The Catholic Apocalypse says
that there are seven heavens and faithfully locates paradise in the third heaven, but Paul’s
second visit to paradise has no reference to the third heaven» (p. 282)].

[Abstract: «The subject of the paper is a little known form of divination which consisted in
consulting people considered to be demoniacs. There is no technical term reserved for
energumens – soothsayers. That is why it is difficult to identify them in the literary sources,
and in particular to distinguish them from mediums in trance and necromancers invoking the
spirits of the dead. Nonetheless at least a few undisputed testimonies of asking demoniacs for
oracular consultation can be found in the late antique texts, of both eastern and western
origin. The method developed probably in the pagan milieu but was later adopted by the
Christians as well who used to practice it in churches or martyria, close to the relics of saints.
The later were to guarantee the veracity of demons’ responses and it seems that sometimes
the practice was considered as acceptable, even pious, as opposed to other methods
belonging to the panoply of ancient divination» (p. 152) – Riferimenti a Origene, CC, Prin,

BREMMER J.N., Foolish Egyptians: Apion and Anoubion in the Pseudo-Clementines, in The Wisdom of
Egypt, 311-329.
[1. Athenodorus. 2. Annoubion. 3. Appion. 4. Conclusion – Dalla Conclusione: «It is clear that
the author of the Grundschrift was well informed about both Anoubion and Apion. Where
and how did he obtain his knowledge about these two “foolish” Egyptians? The case of
Annoubion is perhaps the easiest one to answer. It is clear that Egyptian astrology was known
in Edessa, as Bardaisan was familiar with “books of the Egyptians in which all the different
things that may befall people are described”. The poem of Anoubion, then, may well have
circulated in Edessa. The case of Apion is more difficult. Older source-critical studies
suggested that the section concerning Apion derives from a Jewish “Disputationsbuch”. In
addition, Schmidt has reasonably argued that the figure of Appion could hardly have been
imagined before Josephus’ Contra Apionem (ca. AD 93), whereas the existence of comparable
apologetic treatises is improbable after the Jewish uprising under Trajan and the revolt of Bar
Kokhba. The lost source, then, should date from the intervening years. The use of Jewish
material is certainly possible, as Stanley Jones has also identified a Jewish-Christian source in
the Grundschrift that has survived in the Recognitiones. Yet the existence of (Alexandrian)
Jewish apologetic at the time of Josephus’ Contra Apionem has become less certain, and
current ideas about Jewish apologetics are cleraly in need of a thorough revision» (p. 328)].

Callimachus’s reflections concerning his work using the identification of his reception
mechanisms. In this sense “Prologue to the Telchines” presents a complex communicative

the political use of literary circulation specific to the Alexandrian erudite community» (p. 47)].

[A social and cultural context in the Hellenistic world. Assertion of female desire in the Song.
Female desire and self-assertion in Theocritus. Female desire and self-assertion in other
Hellenistic literature. Conclusion. – Dalla Conclusione: «In the early Hellenistic age, there was a
general poetic engagement with changing gender roles. This engagement seems related to the
unsettling of social roles and expectations that naturally accompanied the increased mobility of
the Hellenistic age and the changed political landscape, as well as the interactions of different
cultures with different gender mores. Themes of female desire and self-assertion as well as male
helplessness and erotic passivity become prominent, and themes of erotic reciprocity and
mutual passion also come into play. There are parallels in social and gender themes between
Hellenistic poetry and the Song of Songs: for example, Theocritus Idylls 2 and 15, both of them
mimes, show women feeling and expressing desire and claiming their right to enter the streets if
they wish. Not only the form – that of mime – but also the content help suggest a congenial
context for the creation of the Song of Songs in the third century BCE» (p. 201)].

Perspectives on the Song of Songs, 206-227.
[Cant 3:1-5 and 5:2-8. Fragmentum Grenfellianum. Conclusion. – Dalla Conclusione: «Due to
the relative scarcity of expressions of female desire in the Hebrew Bible, the texts from
(Hellenistic) Greece employing women’s voices serve as a convenient set of comparative data
that can be utilised to illuminate the poems from the Song of Songs. However, despite all the
parallels in structure and contents one should not disregard the differences. As far as our look
at Fragmentum Grenfellianum was concerned, it became clear that expressions of desire, often
similar to the two passages Cant 3:1-5 and 5:2-8 are utilised in the Fragment to shape a
powerful expression of jealousy and to point the reader to the pains caused by abandonment.
This notion is missing in Song of Songs, but the desire for the beloved partner is equally strong
expressed» (pp. 224-225)].

older and younger man and engages not only with the paederastic literary tradition (as has been
argued by many contemporary scholars), but also creates a “homosexual identity” not
encountered in the texts of the Archaic and Classical periods» (p. 75)].

[Abstract: «Strabo’s history of Judaism (Geography 16.2.35ff.), which is most probably copied
from Posidonius, focuses less on the past which is idealized than on the present which is
criticized – as is common in descriptions of a “golden age” which later deteriorates. The
Posidonian thought that the Jewish religion declined made its way into Tacitus’ mostly hostile
ethnography of Judaism. Modern scholars, especially in the 19th century, when commenting
Posidonius and Tacitus sympathized from a quite different perspective with that very idea of
a Jewish decline» (p. 284)].

[1. The wisdom of the Egyptians in Acts 7.22. 2. Moses’ Egyptian education in Hellenistic
Judaism. 3. Patristic readings of Acts 7.22. 4. Conclusion – «We have argued that the wisdom
of the Egyptians in Acts 7.22 must indeed be specifically Egyptian. Nowhere in early Jewish
literature have we found a statement comparable with the one in Acts; thus, we inferred,
Acts was evidently unique in stressing the Egyptian character of the wisdom concerned.
However, not only Philo represented Moses’ instruction at the Pharaoh’s court as an initiation
in the Greek encyclia, Clement of Alexandria, who knew Acts, also held that view and, what
is more, declared explicitly that Acts 7.22 had to be read in the light of Philo’s description.
Many other patristic authors shared that view; they obviously saw no need to conceive of the
wisdom of the Egyptians as something specifically Egyptian, something definitely non-Greek.
Against this background, our reasoning may well have been too rigid. If Hellenistic nearcontemporaries of the author of Acts such as Philo and Clement could interpret Moses’s

education in Egypt as a Greek affair, why could he not have had the same intention himself?»

Artapanus’ work, often sold short by commentators as naïve, pagan, or at least syncretistic, in
fact worked powerfully to assuage Egyptian Jews’ natural anxieties relative to the legitimacy of
their own self-understanding as the chosen people of the one God. By following the example of
Moses they could happily grant legitimacy to their Egyptian neighbors’ religious practices and
even put their shoulder to the plow that prospered Egypt as a whole. But at the same time they
could rest assured that, within the boundaries of their own community and imaginations, they
remained the chosen people of the one God, the master of all the universe. They could be
certain that push-come-to shove, their God would see to them in a pinch. Thus Artapanus’
response to a stiff cultural challenge was not an inerrantist or literalist retreat into his sacred
texts that might have engendered religious extremism in his audience. Instead, he offered a
richly interpretive reading of his people’s most revered traditions that authorized them to adapt
to the competing, dominant culture while remaining faithful to their own tradition. I suspect we
could learn from this ancient Jew, were we to listen to him well» (p. 78)].

servait de deux façons: ou en plaçant une brève mention de date au terme de l’oracle et du
récit (oracle sur Élam selon la LXX); ou encore en faisant suivre un ensemble long, un recueil
d’oracles ou même l’ensemble du livre, d’un oracle récapitulatif ou conclusif bref et daté (25,
1-13; 28, 59-64TM = 51, 59-64LXX; 51, 31-35LXX = 45TM). Ici il suffit de dire que la datation
d’ensembles plus ou moins longs par des oracles finaux datés est caractéristique du texte
court et vraisemblablement d’un stade rédactionnel antérieur au texte court. Le contenu de
ces ensembles inclut en effet certains matériaux datés ou datables postérieurement à la date

REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
[Scopo di quest’articolo è mettere a confronto il TM e la traduzione dei LXX del libro di Osea
per individuare le diverse concezioni della storia d’Israele che sostengono le due versioni del
testo. Il testo dei LXX, pur essendo una traduzione molto fedele della sua fonte ebraica,
introduce parecchie volte il motivo del Dio educatore (paideuthv" Os 5, 2, cf. anche 7, 12.14.16;
10,10) e quello dell’umiliazione di Israele (Os 2, 15; 5, 5; 7, 10; 14, 9). Attenuando in questa
maniera il «giudizio» che si realizzerà nella catastrofe imminente (Os 1, 4 ecc.), i LXX
concepiscono la storia di Israele come una successione di avvenimenti nei quali Dio agisce
come educatore, cioè «dialetticamente», sia nell’umiliare il suo popolo, sia nel fortificarlo (Os
14, 9 LXX). L’idea del Dio educatore viene ripresa altrove nella Bibbia e nella letteratura
intertestamentaria, p. es. in 2 Macc 6, 12-17; Sal 8, 29; Eb 12, 4-13].

Conclusione: «La LXX présente un texte qui est de façon intentionnelle légèrement plus
unifié que le TM. Un tel constat demande à être confronté à l’analyse textuelle d’autres
collections de psaumes. Les quelques échantillons tirés de la collection asaphite invitent à
beaucoup de prudence: l’unification supérieure des CtD de la LXX n’est sans doute pas un
fait singulier, et la tendance unificatrice relevée dans le psautier grec ne permet pas
d’affirmer que l’unification supérieure des CtD de la LXX témoigne d’une prise de
conscience de l’unité des CtD par les traducteurs alexandrins. L’étude des Pères de l’Église
est en revanche beaucoup plus fructueuse. Dans les commentaires rabbiniques anciens du
Midrash Tehillim et du Talmud on trouve des références aux quinze CtD, et des explications
du titre, mais on ne trouve pas de terminologie particulière pour parler de la collection des
CtD, ni d’analyse numérique de la structure des CtD, alors même que les analyses
numériques sont un procédé rabbinique d’interprétation courant. À la différence, les Pères
apportent des arguments techniques et interprétatifs nouveaux en faveur d’une vision
ancienne de ces psaumes comme formant une collection, ou Latina lingua un corpus: les CtD
sont composés d’un nombre déterminé de psaumes, disposés suivant une certaine forme et
selon un principe d’ordre sacré» (pp. 31-32)].

phonétique, il semble qu’elle a été appliquée pour conserver quelques indices phonétiques de
la Vorlage hébraïque en trois situations différentes: a) dans le cas d’une ignorance soit lexicale,
soit grammaticale ou syntagmatique; b) quand le traducteur s’est permis certaines libertés
dans la paraphrase de son original; c) lorsqu’il veut préserver deux traditions textuelles
différentes dans une seule traduction. Il a été aussi suggéré que la transcription d’un vocable
hébreu en grec a parfois fonctionné comme un stimulus pour sélectionner un synonime du
terme grec. Finalement, il a été observé que les fautes auditives peuvent parfois être la seule
explication possible d’une non-équivalence en grec. D’autre part, quelques non-équivalences
pourraient seulement être expliquées en partie par des mutations phonétiques» (p. 117)].

[Ag 2, 5: La parole donnée à la sortie d’Égypte. Ag 2, 9: Prospérité, ou salut, pour le batisseur

les suppléments d’Aggée rappelons les conclusions auxquelles nous croyons être parvenus:
compte tenu du mode de traduction qui est le sien, c’est-à-dire un littéralisme respectueux
de l’authenticité du texte, et compte tenu de l’importance des suppléments, le traducteur
des XII Petits Prophètes ne peut être tenu pour responsable de ces changements littéraires.
Le “plus” du TM absent du texte grec en Ag 2, 5 qui rappelle la sortie d’Égypte ne serait pas
une omission involontaire ou délibérée du traducteur mais plutôt un développement littéraire
postdeutéronomiste survenu dans le texte hébreu après la traduction de la LXX, ou avant,
mais dans ce cas inconnu du traducteur grec. Le “plus” de la LXX en Ag 2, 9 qui promet une
paix matérielle, ou le salut, à celui qui reconstruit le temple ne serait pas dû à une initiative
personnelle du traducteur, mais la traduction d’un substrat hébreu existant à son époque,
ayant cessé de circuler sous cette forme au moment de l’édition du TM, ou bien non retenue
par les Massorètes, mais appartenant sans doute à une tradition juive ancienne sur la
reconstruction du temple, sinon empruntée par les rédacteurs des livres d’Esdras, mais qui
leur était moins familière. Enfin, le dernier “plus’ de Ag 2, 14 est lui aussi beaucoup trop
important pour pouvoir être mis au compte de la liberté du traducteur: l’expansion
moralisatrice denonçant l’attitude égoïste de la communauté juive au détriment du culte
devait préexister à la LXX, mais l’édition massorétique d’Aggée ne l’a pas retenue, ni peutêtre même connue» (p. 216)].

interprétation du texte massorétique. L’hébreu a été traduit aussi fidèlement que le
comportent les possibilités de la langue grecque. La plupart des changements introduits tout
au long du processus de traduction et le souci du traducteur/copiste d’offrir un texte doté de
sens, qui puisse être lu et compris par les lecteurs hellénistiques (sic). En outre, au chapitre 16
le traducteur, grâce à l’harmonisation et à la répétition d’un groupe de lectures variantes,
devient un narrateur et transforme la scène de divertissement de l’original en une scène de
moquerie. Le héros Samson est dépeint comme la victime des Philistins. Par ces changements
subtils, le traducteur reflète probablement les soucis du temps et les angoisses de la
population juive devant la persécution séleucide» (pp. 132-133)].

the fact that each work draws on the native wisdom traditions of its own country, and there
are broad similarities between the traditional wisdom of Israel and Egypt. Some of the points
of contact between Ben Sira and Papyrus Insinger also reflect intellectual trends of the
Hellenistic age» (p. 147)].

[Abstract: «The words kai; wJ" palaio;" hJmerw'n parh'n in Dan 7,13c LXX are referred by many
exegetes to the “one like a man” (wJ" uiJo;" ajnqrwvpou) in V. 13b, of whom it would then be said:
“and he was present as/like one advanced in years”. This understanding of the text must be
judged untenable. In V. 13c there is a statement about the previously mentioned (V. 9.10a)
palaio;" hJmerw' n: “and he, who looked like one advanced in years, was present”. Dan 7,13-14
LXX is therefore not speaking about a messianic figure, who is brought uniquely into
proximity to God. The consequence of this result fot the exegesis of the New Testament is
that the christological interpretation of Dan 7,13 which is visible in texts like Mark 14,62 par.
and Rev 1,12b-15 is in no way prefigured in the LXX translation of the vision-report in Dan
7,13-14» (p. 90)].

[«Hilary of Poitiers, in his Tractatus super Psalmos, provides a unique view of the origins of the
LXX. The essential point of his argument in favor of the superiority of the Greek version is
that the seventy translators were the heirs of a secret oral tradition that went back to Moses.

Wisdom. Conclusion. – Dalla Conclusione: «The case study presented here supports the
conclusion that the picture of wisdom as described in the Wisdom of Solomon is similar to that
of Sophia in the Gnostic myth, but differs from it on a number of decisive points. The
language used in the Wisdom of Solomon is comparable to that of the Apocryphon of John, but
the differences should not be overlooked. Both sources have been influenced by pagan
Hellenistic terminology, in which especially the cult of Isis and other creator-deities must
have played an important role. The picture of Sophia in the Apocryphon of John is probably
somehow related to Jewish wisdom speculations as found in the Wisdom of Solomon, but this
relation cannot be substantiated as one in which concepts or ideas are directly borrowed.
Instead, the conclusion should be that the Gnostics who described the myth of Sophia and
the theogony in the Apocryphon of John were thoroughly influenced by the pagan hellenistic
milieu in which the Wisdom of Solomon was also written. Within this Hellenistic milieu they
expressed their views in terms that are reminiscent of, but also different from, Jewish wisdom
speculations» (pp. 113-114)].

proposed a great number of emendations (corrections, omissions, additions and displacement
of words and verses). By comparing this passage with the Near Eastern myths (especially the
Ugaritic cycle of Ba‘al and the Babylonian Enuma elish) we show that the Massoretic
consonantic Text can be read without relevant changes and some “difficult” readings of the
LXX can be explained» (pp. 55-56)].

This study deals with the Greek renderings of Hebrew words. The lexical analysis of Gen. 3750 brings us to three main conclusions: first, the homogeneous renderings lead us to suspect
the existence of one translator only for the LXX Grek version; second, the terms and the
hierarchical and administrative schemes reflect those in use during the Ptolemaic period
(third century B.C.); third, the context is undoubtedly Egyptian. Because of these three main
conclusions there is no need of any rewriting of the text» (p. 84)].

that Judith may be identified with Queen Salome Alexandra, who reigned in Judaea between

Jannai. It seems that the story itself narrates the war between the powerful King Tigranes of
Armenia and Queen Salome Alexandra’s Judaea. The author of the Book of Judith was
probably a Sadducee. The book is also a vehicle to criticize contemporary Pharisees’s
leadership, then in power» (p. 98)].

this is not a literal quote from Scripture. (...) In the framework of a magical spell such a

its powerful act(s) in the present» (p. 136). I passi biblici in questione sono Es 15.4 LXX e Dt 11,

[Abstract: «A common opinion views the purpose of the Letter of Aristeas as strengthening the
self-identity of Egyptian Diaspora Jewry by sanctifying the Greek translation of the Torah. As
Orlinsky has shown, this view is supported by linguistic and thematic parallels between
Aristeas and biblical descriptions of the giving of the Torah. The linguistic and thematic
associations, however, do not apply to this specific biblical episode, but also to the entire book
of Exodus including the Exodus story itself. The author of Aristeas transformed the biblical
stories of the Exodus and the giving of the Torah into a new foundation story of Egyptian
Jewry. In doing so, the new story disregards the biblical hostility to Egypt and instead
expresses sympathy for the Ptolemaic king who released the Jews from slavery, settled them in
Egypt and initiated the Torah translation into Greek. The aim of Aristeas was to offer a
religious justification for the residence of Jews in Egypt» (p. 1)].

FELDMAN L.H., Philo’s Version of the Biblical Episode of the Spies, HUCA 73 (2002) 29-48.
[Abstract: «Philo’s Version of the episode of the spies contains many modifications. In
particular, he stresses Moses’ role as a general. It is Moses’ idea, rather than God’s or the
Israelites’, to send spies. Independently questioning God’s promise, Moses tells the spies that
it would be foolish to risk conquering the land if it is poor. He appoints an even number of
spies because he stresses the importance of unanimity. Philo does not give the names of the
spies because he wishes to keep the focus on Moses. He omits Moses’ instruction to take from
the fruit of the land because he is aware that his non-Jewish audience might regard this as
theft. He avoids mentioning the exaggerations that the spies reported since such
exaggerations would be viewed with scepticism by his non-Jewish readers. Philo’s Moses is
silent in the face of the spies’ report because Philo felt ambivalent about stifling a majority,
though he has indignation for the masses. Philo omits the dialogue between Moses and God
in which God threatens to annihilate the Israelites because this would make Moses appear to
be more merciful than God» (p. 29)].

Zwischen Clemens und Eusebius entstand eine exegetische Schule, die auf Philon aufbaut.
Philon selbst war so wenig Glied der Kette wie Jesus von Nazareth Mitglied einer christlichen
Gemeinde. Als Gipfel einer andauernden hellenistischen Exegese spiegelt er diese aber nicht
so sehr wider, als er auf ihr aufbauend seine eigene Vergeistigung der Schrift vorführt.
Lernen ist bei Philon (siehe Abraham!) Ideal wie in aller echten Philosophie, aber Philosophie
ist nicht einfach Wiedergabe von Gelerntem – und mit aller religiösen Einschränkung: Philon

[A benchmark: Josephus on Sarah. Philo’s literal reading of Sarah in the Life of Abraham:
Sarah, Abraham, and Hagar; Sarah in Egypt; Sarah and the Messengers. Philo’s allegorical
reading of Sarah: Earlier Alexandrian exegesis; Sarah abandons womanly things (Gen 18:11);
Motherless maiden (Gen 20:12). Conclusion. – Dalla Conclusione: «What does this analysis of
Sarah in Philo’s midrash contribute to our general understanding of his attitude towards
women? I began this article by criticizing the view that Philo’s interpretation of the matriarch
simply embodies a misoginy that he inherited from Hellenism and transmitted to Western
theology. It has become abundantly clear by now that the picture is far more complex and
intricate. Philo certainly was a conservative who did not challenge prevalent patriarchal
structures, and he reproduced contemporary stereotypes about gender and sexuality. At the
same time, however, he was surprisingly capable of recognizing the specific virtues of an
individual woman and appreciating the historical matriarch: he is far more sympathetic to
Sarah than the biblical narrators were. His philosophical preconceptions of masculine activity
and feminine passivity, however, lead him in his allegorical interpretation of Sarah to go to
great lengths to strip her of her femininity. At the same time, however, we must appreciate
that Philo is willing to idealize Sarah as a personification of masculinity who enjoys the closest
ties to God – a position that is, I think, much preferable to Josephus’s consistent and
complete silencing of women’s voices» (p. 444)].

4. Albero dell’immortalità e popolo dei veggenti. Conclusione. – Abstract: «The article
examines the theme of the “Man in the image” in Philo by inserting it into a linear
conception of the evolution of man at the base of Philo’s speculation. In this way, the article
reveals the distance of Philo’s perspective from Origen’s ideas expressed above all in CIo. As
the highest genus of reality and book of creation from the ethical, cosmological and
anthropological point of view, the “Man in the image” is, in Philo, inseparably connected with
the man of Gen 2:7, who symbolizes a species of this man. Applying the stoic and academicperipatetic speculations regarding the concept of oikeiosis (appropriation of the self) to the
scriptural text – as a comparison with Cicero and Arius Didymus shows –, Philo reads Gen 2:7
not as the result of the fall from a primitive condition of perfection, but as a revelation
through which God unveils to man his most intimate vocation and destiny. In virtue of the
inspiration of the pneuma, every man defines himself as an ethical subject, potentially capable
of reaching virtue by cultivating the seeds. The evolutionary phases of the moral history of
man are guided by the divine teaching in a passage from the dyadic nature of hearing to the
monadic nature of vision, through the journey which leads from forgetfulness of the law to
the recollection of the law. Philo intends the appropriation of the self to be the recognition,
through the divine pneuma, of the divine filiation of man, which is the generation of God
himself in as far as he is an ethical subject. In the fourth generation of the moral life, man will
be reborn according to the perfection of the septenary principle, assimilating himself to the
tree of life and becoming immortal in virtue, thanks to the full and free adhesion to the law
which ontologically defines him. The man of the septenary rebirth forms himself as the very
“Man in the image” and the living law. The “Man in the image” is, in Philo, the people of the
Seers, Israel, whose roots, established in virtue, do not extinguish, transmitting the seed of the
divine law into the perpetuity of memory» (pp. 621-622)].

[Abstract: «In Antiquity of the Jews 14.257-58, Josephus records a decree by the people of
Halicarnassus in which the Jews are, according to the Loeb translation by Marcus, allowed to
“build places of prayer”. However, this could also be translated “offer prayers”. In this article
I first assess the arguments made by scholars who propose translating in either of these ways,
arguing that the solutions offered are inadequate. I then discuss Josephus’ use of poievw in the
middle voice pointing out that he never uses it to describe the construction of a whole
building, only parts of building. A comparison with the use of poievw in the New Testament,
Philo and other sources confirms that in this decree “offer prayers” is the translation that
should be adopted» (p. 159)].

[Abstract: «A comparison of Josephus’ portrait of Apion with other ancient testimonia shows
that the Jewish historian, in his effort to discredit the grammarian, focused on the same failing of
character that other ancient authors had found. Josephus also aimed a deceptive attack at
Apion’s ethnicity wherein he blurs the line between the Alexandrian’s Greek cultural identity
and his Egyptian origin. Josephus took pains to construct an ideal opponent, one with whom the
reader of Josephus’ treatise – be he Jew, Greek, or Roman – would not sympathise. An analysis
of Apion’s “case” against the Jews shows that Josephus himself culled various Jewish items from
Apion’s Aegyptiaca and, after distorting the original intention of the excerpts, cobbled them
together to form an easily refuted indictment of Jewish history and practices. An appendix
examines the evidence for a supposed kata; ∆Ioudaivwn attributed to Apion» (p. 278)].

REED A.Y., Abraham as Chaldean Scientist and Father of the Jews: Josephus, Ant. 1.154-168, and the GrecoRoman discourse about Astronomy/Astrology, JSJ 35 (2004) 119-158.
[Abstract: «This article analyzes Josephus’ approach to Abraham and astronomy/astrology in
Ant. 1.154-168. This retelling of Genesis 12 describes Abraham as inferring the one-ness of God
from the irregularity of the stars, thereby implying his rejection of “the Chaldean science” for
Jewish monotheism. Soon after, however, Josephus posits that the patriarch transmitted
astronomy/astrology to Egypt, appealing to the positive connotations of this art for apologetic
aims. Towards explaining the tension between these two traditions, I first map the range of early
Jewish traditions about Abraham and the stars, and then consider he Hellenistic discourse
about astral wisdom as the domain of ancient “barbarian” nations, as it shaped Hellenistic
Jewish traditions that celebrate Abraham’s astronomical/astrological skill. I conclude with
Josephus’ own cultural context, proposing that the attitude towards astronomy/astrology among
his Roman contemporaries may help to account for the ambivalence in his characterization of
Abraham as both Chaldean scientist and father of the Jews» (p. 119)].

[Abstract: «The passage exhibits two different approaches – those of Josephus and the
Mishnah – to the geographic description of the land of Israel. Each one of them is based on
the background of its own period and on the goals of its writer. Josephus, as historian,
continues the Hellenistic (Greek) tradition of geography. He outlines a map of all edges of the
land with Jerusalem in the middle as part of the reality of his days and his priestly outlook on
the world. By comparison, the Mishnah, which is a book of laws, undertakes geographic
descriptions in its desire to clarify the law. It was written after the destruction of the Temple,
with Jerusalem in ruins – therefore, many changes occurred in the map of the Jewish
settlement of the land. While the Mishnah’s description does contain some remnants of
similarities to Josephus, the Mishnah’s description also contains a difference in which the
coastal area is emphasized as is appropriate for the conditions of the period» (p. 415)].

[1. A doublet? 2. Reading Josephus against the grain. – «It thus appears that there are only
two ways ‘Who Captured Masada?’ can become a problem: either we adduce some new
source that contradicts those assembled above, or we ignore some of them and thus leave the
others telling only a partial picture. Both have been tried, the former employing a sourcecritical tool (doublets) and coming to the conclusion that Masada was captured not by
Eleazar but, rather, by Menahem (a relative of his assassinated in Jerusalem in 66) – a position
which is in fact regnant today, perhaps surprisingly, given the current disrepute of sourcecriticism. The latter approach, in contrast, applies a composition-critical suspicion to what is
characterized as the laconic nature of 2.408 and suggests that Josephus was covering up the
embarrassing fact that those who captured Masada were in fact aristocratic priests from
Jerusalem, the type of people he was loath to portray as villains. In what follows, we shall
argue that the whole point of departure of the former route is in error, and that the latter
route, precisely because it is based upon ignoring the rest of the evidence apart from 2.408,
should be left outside the study of history» (pp. 76-77)].

[«Nei giorni di Giuseppe, l’identità giudaica si aggiunge a un conglomerato di culture. Come
affermerà il filosofo Epitteto, si sentivano giudei parlare e agire esattamente come greci. Un
poeta satirico latino, Persio, mette alla berlina gli scrupoli per la vita giudaica di un anonimo
aspirante all’edilità. Paolo di Tarso sembra conoscere membri delle comunità giudaiche di
Efeso e di Colossi che sono divenuti estranei alla “cittadinanza di Israele”. Si tratta, dunque, di
ripensare e ripercorrere la storia attraverso la linea maestra dell’osservanza della Legge. Non
esisteva forse altra via per ridurre a esposizione storica un fenomeno così complesso e articolato
quale era il “giudaismo” prima dell’affermazione di una specifica identità cristiana. E non è un
caso che lo stesso termine designi nel Secondo libro dei Maccabei e nel Nuovo Testamento non
già una realtà etnica, ma una sorta di manifesto per richiamare la nazione all’unità contro
l’erosione e la dispersione della propria identità» (p. 211)].

[Introduction. 1. Cleopatra in the Jewish War. 2. Cleopatra in Jewish Antiquities 14-15.
3. Cleopatra in Against Apion. – «Josephus is one of the most negative ancient sources about
Cleopatra. He goes beyond the usual contempt for Cleopatra’s sexual immorality, greed and
perverted hunger for power, and portrays her in Against Apion as the ultimately wicked
foreign ruler. Josephus’ Cleopatra passages show an increasing tendency to blacken the
famous and intelligent queen; so much so that Michael Grant concludes in his biography of
Cleopatra that Josephus “is savagely biased against the queen”. Why is a separate discussion
of the Cleopatra passages in Josephus useful? First, Cleopatra’s dealings with Herod the
Great, as reported by Josephus, show two client rulers in action, fighting for Roman support
and benefactions in very different ways. Second, the various Cleopatra passages have been
treated before as one coherent cluster, but this apporach does not do justice to the changes
of Cleopatra’s image in Josephus’s works. Third, although Josephus’s descriptions show many
parallels with statements by non-Jewish authors, there are some issues in his works that are
remarkable if not altogether unique, and deserve further discussion» (p. 115)].

celebrations, which display a historical continuity from the Late Bronze Age to the Hellenistic
period, the literary treatment of love in Egypt and Israel emerges in different time periods
and cultural settings. Ramesside Egypt sees the development of new textual genres, among
them love poetry, which unlike classical literature are written in a lower linguistic register and
address the sphere of public as well as private entertainment. During the Second Temple
period, a similar textual form appears in Jewish literature, as documented by the Song of
Songs, which shares many of the conceptual and stylistic features of Egyptian love poetry.
However, rather than on a direct textual transmission, made unlikely by the disappearance of
a written tradition of love poems after the end of the Bronze Age, this continuity of forms and
contents finds its origin in the common festive background of the genre in Egypt and Israel:
the continuity in underlying performances rooted in a dialectic between the sphere of
periodic religious festivals and the context of episodic social events, proves to be much more
stable than their impact on literary discourse» (p. 132)].

[1. Barnabas in early Christianity. 2. Interpretation of Scripture. 3. Barnabas in Alexandria. – «It
was not until the early second century that Christians emerged as a group that was distinct from
the Jewish community. Barnabas is evidence of at least one type of Christianity in Alexandria
during the first part of the second century. There were other types of Christianity such as are to
be found in other early Christian sources. It is quite probable that the author of Barnabas was a
Christian convert from Judaism, who was opposed to a form of Judaism with a nationalist
tendency and a strict literal interpretation of the law. Perhaps the author wanted to moderate
fanatical feelings within and without his community for the hope of the rebuilding of the
temple in Jerusalem. Even if for many Jews the Jewish religion had reached a spiritual level and
there was no need for animal sacrifices and the rebuilding of a temple, this was not a universal
view. The author never mentions the Jews by name, but always refers to them as “they” or
“them”, indicating his distance from them. The author was not a follower of a writer or
Christian group of which we still have evidence. Yet his letter was a popular writing in his time,
and was read in the churches of Egypt in the second century and after» (p. 263)].
PEARSON B.A., Cracking a Conundrum: Christian Origins in Egypt, StTh 57 (2003) 61-75.
[The setting: Alexandrian Judaism. Christians in Alexandria. Conclusion. – «We have seen
that variety is a characteristic of both Judaism and emergent Christianity in first-century
Alexandria. In the beginning, the varieties of Christianity in Alexandria were, in fact, varieties
of that great city’s Judaism, for there was no “Christianity” identifiable as such. The figure of
Philo is a towering presence in that amalgam. While we do not know what Philo thought of
such Jesus-believing Jews as he might have encountered, I would like to think that he
engaged them in open dialogue, and some of them may even have been his pupils. In any
case, it is certainly through the mediation of early Alexandrian Christians that his writings (at
least most of them) came to be preserved. While Philo played virtually no role at all in the
subsequent development of Judaism, Alexandrian Christianity came to look upon him as one
of their own predecessors. Ultimately, it was the Philo-like Christianity of Silvanus, rather than
the primitive apocalypticism of Barnabas, or the acosmic radicalism of the Gnostics, that
carried the day in the development of Alexandrian Christian theology in the patristic age
through the fourth century» (pp. 70-71)].

Christian faith brought with them their rituals, worldview, and lifestyle, and, obviously, these
Judeo-Christians continued to faithfully observe their religious customs. The original Didache
text was modified, amended, and updated to fit the version of the table prayers with which
the Jewish Christian community in Egypt was familiar. In this way, local diversity, for example
in the form of an ‘ointment’ prayer, could easily have crept into the ritual» (p. 243)].

[«Soweit Eusebs Nachrichten über die alexandrinische Katechetenschule unmittelbare
historische Aufschlüsse gestatten, vermitteln sie das Bild einer religiösen Unterweisungstätigkeit,
die in Großräumigkeit und Intensität weit über das hinausgeht, was die Kirche sonst irgendwo
im 2. Jh. kennt. Sie weisen zudem darauf, dass der einzigartige Aufschwung wissenschaftlichtheologischer Studien, der vermöge der hier geleisteten Synthese einer christlichen Metaphysik
grundlegend für die christliche Theologie schlechthin werden sollte, engstens mit der vor Ort
ausgeübten Schultätigkeit verkoppelt war. Trotzdem bleiben angesichts der Dürftigkeit der
überlieferten Informationen viel, gerade die konkreten, institutionellen Erscheinungsformen des
Schulalltags betreffende Fragen offen. Man würde gerne wissen, ob schon in der Anfangszeit
für die Lehre eigene, feste Räumlichkeiten, etwa in kirchlicher Trägerschaft, zur Verfügung
standen und, wenn ja, wo sie gelegen waren. Man möchte wissen, ob und in welchem Umfang
der Schule eine eigene theologische Bibliothek zugeordnet war, und man hat vermutet, dass ein
ihr verbundenes christliches Skriptorium existierte. Vor allem stellen sich Fragen nach dem
Wurzelboden, aus dem Idee und Gestalt einer christlichen Schule in Alexandrien erwachsen
sind. Wenn das alexandrinische Christentum von früh an zweipolig verlaufen ist und neben
dem heidenchristlichen Entwicklungsstrang von einem starken judenchristlichen Anteil geprägt
war, dann drängt sich die Vermutung auf, ob etwa in den Unterrichtsformen der christlichen
Gemeinde Strukturen jüdischer Lehrinstitutionen indirekt fortzudauern vermochten. Die
exzeptionelle Bedeutung, die das Werk des hellenistischen Juden Philo für die alexandrinische
Theologie eines Clemens und Origenes hat, muss auch in dieser Hinsicht die Aufmerksamkeit
für mögliche Vermittlungsinstanzen des alexandrinischen Judentums, obschon direkte Quellen
fehlen, schärfen» (pp. 301-302)].

mystery and of the ‘Sons of God’. The final phase of cosmic generation: the great ignorance.
The ‘apokatastasis’ of all things. Jesus as ‘the first fruit of the separation’. Conclusions and

claims by J. Frickel that Hippolytus made the connection between Basilides’ doctrine and the
407
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
philosophy of the pagan philosopher Aristotle, but that Basilides himself did not explicitly
refer to Aristotle, should be accepted. This is not to say, however, that Aristotle’s thought had
no influence on Basilides. On the contrary. Some crucial features of Basilides’ doctrine can
only be adequately explained against the background of Aristotle’s theology, noology, and
psychology. (...) But perhaps we should go even further back and investigate whether the
origin of Gnostic theology in fact lies in Greek philosophy, in particular in the myth of the
alienation of Dionysus, the young son of God, from his father, through his entrance into the
sphere of the cosmic Titans and, next, his descent into the sublunary sphere of nature and
mortality. Such a myth with a strong Orphic colouring was presented at length in Aristotle’s
dialogue Eudemus. Traces of it have been found by J. Pépin in the work of Philo of Alexandria.
Basilides seems to have given himself room for an adaptation of this myth by positing, like
Philo of Alexandria, that just as man is an image of the divine Logos, so the cosmos writ large
must likewise be such an image. In this way he replaced the biblical view on man by a Greek
philosophical anthropogony in connection with a cosmogony» (pp. 416-418)].

continuità, e in secondo luogo con la dottrina di Tolomeo, il maestro valentiniano del II sec., di cui
conosciamo meglio il pensiero; la sua dottrina rivelerà una visione del mondo più ottimistica,

served as a source for the book. In the Acts of Peter and the Twelve 8.14-35, we have found
passages which characterise Lithargoel in a way that fits excellently into the plot of the Pearl
Narrative. We have also outlined subsequent levels of redaction before the Pearl Narrative
reached the final redactor. Textual clues have been found which can be used to reconstruct

[Abstract: «The second part of the as yet mostly unpublished Coptic versions of the Old
Nubian “Stauros-Text” is a series of short excerpts from the amen-responsory between the
Savior and the apostles, and from the Savior’s intervening address to the cross, in the so-called
“Unbekanntes Berliner Evangelium” (UBE) or “Gospel of the Savior”. The first part of the
Coptic Stauros-Text manuscript is probably also an extract from this gospel, and so the
Coptic and Nubian Stauros-Texts are third and fourth witnesses to this “new” apocryphal
gospel. The Coptic Stauros-Text helps to restore damaged passages in the two previously
known manuscripts of the UBE, in Berlin and Strasbourg, and indicates that the amenresponsory and address to the cross are presented as two (or more) hymns to which Jesus
dances, with the Apostles encircling him (as in ActJoh 94-95, for example). Since the UBE is a
gospel narrated by “the apostles”, the question must at least be posed, whether it might stand
in some direct relationship with the famous, but nonetheless obscure “Gospel of the Twelve
Apostles” mentioned by Origen in his first homily on Luke, especially if one is prepared to
question the long-standing identification of Origen’s “Gospel of the Twelve” with the
“Gospel of the Ebionites”» (p. 96)].

essentially on the mythology the heresiologists called that of the Ophites. Before the Nag

Gnosticism, rooted in Jewish soil, and only secondarily Christianized. Today, not only are similar
claims made of Sethian Gnosticism, but also some of the above-mentioned texts are classified as
Sethian. In many recent studies, the Ophite mythology is connected with Sethian Gnosticism,
even though the exact relationship between these two forms of Gnosticism has remained
unclear. It is argued here that the Sethian Gnostic authors drew on earlier forms of Gnosticism,
especially on the Ophite mythology, in composing some of the central Sethian texts» (p. 235)].

[Baraies’ first homily (CMC 45.1-72.7). The homiletic focus of Baraies’ homily. Baraies on the
rapture of Mani. But why the rapture? Conclusions. – Dalle Conclusioni: «Even though the
apocalypses in the Cologne Mani Codex may be alleged, Baraies had knowledge of both JewishChristian apocalyptic lore, and of Paul’s letters. If the charge that Mani’s followers wrote about
the rapture of their leader in order to boast (46.4-7, alluding to 2 Cor 12.1-5) was real, then
Baraies’ opponents were Christians who accepted Paul as an apostle. It therefore is not
surprising that in his homily Baraies repeatedly refers and alludes to Paul, and that his
quotations are quite literal. This indicates a context in which Paul’s letters were important. On
the other hand, the excerpts from the alleged apocalypses are not literal quotations, but
413
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
assemblages of existing, and in some cases perhaps also new materials. This strongly indicates
that apocalyptic texts did not have the same standing as the letters of Paul. (...) The list of
apostolic figures includes the five antediluvian heroes and Paul, but not specifically Jewish
figures who also had been translated such as Abraham or Moses, nor Zoroaster, or Buddha, who
are regarded as apostles in Manichaean traditions. This points to a Christian background of
Baraies and his Manichaean brothers, but also of their opponents, who may have kept these
antediluvian apostles in honour, without being really interested in what they wrote» (p. 441)].

first book of the Pistis Sophia, by its paradoxical but nevertheless firmly negative attitude,
represents an important chapter in the history of the early Christian debate about magic and
astrology. The author adheres to a tradition that links the Incarnation with the abolition of
magic and the astral Fate. In describing this process, he uses mythical materials from various
backgrounds in addition to consciously technical terminology. He is remarkably ambiguous,
however, in the way he restricts the effects of this abolition. In conceding that magicians can
still invoke higher powers and that astrological predictions may come true once the experts
have grasped the new situation, he admits that magic, astrology and divination are still able to
operate effectively. (...) His astonishing concessions are meant to make room for a primarily
technical understanding of magic and astrology, considered as scientifically or at least
empirically undeniable facts» (p. 536)].

Monasticism, HThR 98 (2005) 143-169.
[The signs of acedia. Treatment of acedia. Acedia and anomie. Conclusion. – « In this essay I
offer a more synthetic and synchronic approach to interpreting the demon of acedia in the
context of early Christian monasticism. This is important for understanding the ancient
phenomenon of acedia because descriptions of it are by no means limited to the numerous
works within the Evagrian and Cassianic corpora. Early monastic discussion of the demon, in
fact, is attested in a wide range of authors and texts, including theoretical and practical
treatises in Greek, Latin, Coptic, and Syriac, works written by men and women monastics,
and representing the full range of early monastic social organizations. The following discussion
re-evaluates the early monastic phenomenon known as acedia. It begins with the following
fundamental questions: 1) What signs (or symptoms) does the demon of acedia exhibit in a
monastic?; 2) What treatment may counter the demon? With these questions in mind, a
synthetic examination of early monastic texts demonstrates that the demon of acedia
manifests itself in a range of psychological and somatic symptoms that is far broader than the
familiar tradition that John Cassian bequeathed to the West. After laying out the diverse
symptoms of acedia in early monastic literature, I will conclude with a sociological explanation
for the widely varying descriptions of acedia. Specifically, the diverse – even contradictory –
psychological and somatic signs attributed to acedia may be explained by reference to
anomie, a type of disjunction in social structure that is especially likely in monastic
communities of the lavra or semi-eremitic type» (pp. 145-146)].

Abstract: «The rise of Christian asceticism in the 4th century meant a challenge to the social and
ecclesiastical establishment, posing new problems which had to be met through laws. The
constant policy of legislation during the following two centuries was to submit the monks to the
bishop and to separate them from the world, thus turning them into “true monks”. But the
documentary papyri and Egyptian monastic rules show a practice which is very far from the
laws in almost every aspect. The extremely slight impact that imperial and canonical legislation
had on Egyptian monasticism is due to its charismatic organization, which made monastic habits
stronger than legal dispositions, whose legitimacy was very weak for the monks» (p. 7)].

[Introduction. 1. Women as Satanic beings? The views of the Desert Fathers. 2. The
background. 3. Conclusions – «... In early Egyptian monastic literature the woman is considered
a constant danger to the virtue of the monk, an instrument of Satan, almost identical with Satan
himself. Monks do not permit women to visit them, not even their own mother or sister, because
“it is through women that the Enemy fights against the saints”. I shall try to examine the reasons
and roots of this misogyny: how it came about that woman, the “Mother of all living beings”,
turned into a Satanic being, aiming expressly at the destruction of pious men. Another question
which can be raised is why the appreciation of women in monastic circles was so much more
negative than in Gnostic circles. Both were ascetic currents that existed not very far away from
one another in space and time, and were based more or less on the same traditions. Nonetheless,
the more rigorously encratic Gnostic thinking could entertain a much more favourable idea of
woman than the orthodox monastic tradition» (p. 352)].

which we find ourselves. This is a point worth emphasizing since it stands against the claim
that monasticism in general, and the Egyptian eremitical tradition in particular, fostered an
essentially pessimistic view of the world and of human nature itself. The world Cassian
describes is one governed by God’s providence, which tries and shapes us for our eternal
benefit. We are, as it were, in process. Therefore, our ultimate success or failure as human
beings cannot be measured in terms of the wealth, power, health or respect life has allotted
us. These are merely the instruments that test us on our way to our eternal goal» (pp. 19-20)].

rechazo hasta la asimilación. Clemente es conocido por su inclinación a la última tendencia.

estrategias de mayor o menor calado, consigue teñir de sentido cristiano. Su objetivo con ello
es, como él mismo dice, kata; th;n sh;n dihgouvmeno" eijkovna (Protr. XII 119, 1), explicarlo con las
imágenes propias del paganismo. Las tres técnicas que hemos encontrado en el Protréptico no
son las únicas posibles, ni es Clemente el primero o el último en utilizarlas. Pero revelan con
claridad el funcionamiento de ciertos procesos de cambio semántico. Es evidente que, sin
perjuicio de sus intentos de lograr la máxima belleza literaria, toda la obra de Clemente tiene
un sentido apologético primordial. Y en la dialéctica entablada con el paganismo en cada
pasaje, la propiedad de las palabras fue un factor decisivo. Los juegos de palabras, citas y
metáforas no fueron meros adornos retóricos, sino que cumplieron una función religiosa y
lingüística de capital importancia» (p. 343)].

should be expanded beyond those of Theban killer, tomb guardian, and decorative motif.
The sphinx also served as temple guardian, and she (or he) had a series of symbolic roles,
representing prophetic utterance, theological ambiguity, divine mystery, divine retribution,
and protection with intelligence. Drawing on his Hellenized Egyptian environment, Clement
of Alexandria gave the fullest formulations of these rich interpretations» (pp. 308-310)].

3. Conclusion. – Dalla Conclusione: «Time and again Lipsius invokes Clement’s authority to
defend the use of Greek, especially Stoic, philosophy in constructing a valuable propaedeutic to
Christian faith, to demonstrate that the Stoics can inspire his contemporaries to deepen their
knowledge of Christian doctrine as it was set out in the ‘Porch of Solomon’. However, Lipsius
only uses Clement when appropriate, needed or possible. Thus he leaves aside Clement’s
theological views on philosophy as a work of divine providence, his ideas on revelatio generalis,
and his Gnostic exaggeration of the doctrine of ajpavqeia as the foundation of all virtues. On the
other hand Lipsius embraced (or perhaps felt compelled to agree with) Clement’s statement
that Christianity, in sharp contrast to Greek philosophy, does not represent a partial truth, but
rather universal truth. This viewpoint leads Clement to adopt an eclectic attitude and to make
necessary modifications: he abhorred the materialistic character of Stoic theology, and removed
Stoic ethics from their original cosmological perspective. In a similar vein, Lipsius was careful not
to promote Stoic doctrines and morality as such» (pp. 521-522)].

[«To summarize, Clement built on existing Christian apologetic traditions but took them into
different directions by integrating new aspects of Hellenic culture in his approach. He
employed philosophical and rhetorical schemes as modes of expression but by doing so
transformed both the schemes and the traditional apologetic subject matter. The use of the
protreptic style – that is, the format of exhortation – was just one element in this strategy. A
precise definition of the apologetic element in Clement’s work is harder to formulate than his
overall strategy. In a narrow sense it consists of traditional ideas of the dependency of the
Greeks and the rejection of Greek religious customs. In a broad sense apologetic themes and
discourse permeate everything that Clement wants to include in his vision of the “true
philosophy”» (p. 92) – Il contributo è seguito dalla «Discussion» (pp. 94-102)].

CIo into the collection constituted by the various prologues (more than ten) in the gospel
commentaries which the patristic tradition, Greek and Latin, have bequeathed to us. These
are considered from the point of view of the dispositio, or the organisation around a central
nucleus of introductive material, as the attached graphical schema shows. From the
subsequent point of view of the inventio, one distinguishes two principal contents of this
‘nucleus’: a. the Greek perspective of Origen, continued by Chrysostom, and partially by
Cyril of Alexandria (but also by Augustine commenting on John), which attaches itself to the
dynamic representation of the divine word, and particularly to the active sense of the word
evangelium, or of its equivalent ‘to announce the good news’; b. Irenaeus’ perspective of the
four-fold Gospel, presented as the deployment in four complementary images of the object of
this announcement: the economy and action of the Incarnate Word. The model illustrated
by Irenaeus dominates the West (Ambrose, Chromatius, Jerome). These two traditions,
which partially overlap, are more parallels than opposites; each one aims to present the
423

efficacious novelty of the Gospel text, an object of commentary, as the integration of its
premise – the Jewish Bible – and its conclusion – the life of the Church» (p. 616)].

«This article intends to prove the hypothesis that O.’s CIo is a work of scholastic derivation.
Such a demonstration is advanced on two levels. Above all, it is developed upon the recognition
of the background of verbal communication which is the base of the commentary’s composition, as
the colloquial style and the continuous recalls to the hearer attest – collaborative readers, the
incessant invitation to research, the often disorganized and inorganic advancement of the
argumentation, the digression or the unexpected interruptions, which, in the judgment of one
who writes, would be references to Origen’s own genuine scholastic training. In the second
place, it is developed through the individualization of the reception of the exegetical
methodologies practiced in antiquity for interpretation/commentary on poets (involving textual
criticism, the correct modalities of reading, the individualization of principal tropes and
rhetorical figures, the interpretation of the more complex and difficult words, the explanatio
rerum, the correct prosopopea, the contextual reading of the text) and, in addition, those
methods adopted for the commentary on great philosophical texts (which, together with the
elaboration of the prologue in their work, had their great moment in the practice of the quaestio
– zetesis, developed in an ample and articulated form, with the advancement of multiple
responses, the comparison with diverse opinions of the commentators, the refusal on the part of
the author to take a categorical position, and the summation in the responses» (p. 617)].

Pascha, a work written after Origen moved to Caesarea. It not only contains hidden references
to the process of initiation and other theologoumena linked to the theology of baptism, but
also several passages in which Origen is quite clearly talking about core elements in the
baptismal rite. My intention in the present article is (I) to present both the clear relation
between Pascha and initiation as well as the somewhat vaguer hints at their association, and
subsequently (II) to endeavour to establish how significant these observations are for the
question of the origins of paschal baptism» (pp. 13-14)].

[Abstract: «In his Commentary on John 4:38 (CIo XIII, 50), Origen challenges a number of
more or less traditional scriptural interpretations of the catholic Church concerning God’s
role as man’s only and immediate Creator. Origen’s questioning of these traditions is all the
more precarious since a great number of them were developed as arguments in the
controversy with the Gnostics. Origen, however, in his alternative exegesis of John 4:38, seems
to be at least partly inspired by the Gnostic Heracleon. The paper provides an analysis of the
reasons for Origen’s taking up this position and attempts to argue that the interpretation of
John 4:38 can be seen in the context of the polemics with ‘simple people’ scattered
throughout CIo» (p. 622)].

«The episode of the Samaritan woman (Jn 4:1-42), which occupies the entirety of Book XIII of
CIo, is read by Origen in an actualizing key: the Samaritan woman and the Samaritans are a
figure of the heterodox (Gnostics) who convert by meeting the Saviour. In this context, the
‘deep well’ becomes the image of the ‘pseudo-knowledge’ which refers erroneously to the
Scriptures. We are before an interesting path of investigation and, perhaps, before a unique
case in all of ancient Christian literature: the path of conversion of a Gnostic from the ChristSaviour of the false gnosis to the Christ of the ecclesial faith. In this profession of ecclesial faith,
Origen finds the possibility of a true conversion and of a true illumination of the soul, which also
signifies the beginning of true and incessant progress» (p. 627)].

Dall’Introduzione: «Origen’s Commentary and Homilies on the Song of Songs provided the
inspiration for much later discussion of that biblical book... Distinctive to Origen’s
interpretation was his deployment of the Song to illustrate Paul’s hope, expressed especially in
Romans 9-11, for the eventual union of Jews and Gentiles in the Christian Church. For
Origen, the Song is a saga of Judaism’s and paganism’s progress to Christianity, a progress
from the children’s milk and weak man’s vegetables to the solid food of Christ’s athletes.
Whether or not Origen deemed likely the conversion of the Jews in his own time..., his
unwavering conviction of the power of God’s goodness and of the freedom of the human will
to turn from unbelief to “faith” prompted him to champion Paul’s vision» (p. 274)].

[«Ad Alessandria Clemente aveva fatto ricorso all’episodio sia nel Pedagogo sia negli Stromati.
(...) Sempre ad Alessandria... l’ebreo Filone si era occupato, lui sì varie volte, del nostro brano,
sia considerandolo globalmente sia privilegiando qualche singolo elemento e ne aveva offerto
quasi sempre una lettura simbolica; nel De Abraham, però, l’aveva fatto oggetto di un’esegesi
più dettagliata interessandosi anche alla realtà storica della vicenda, di certo allo scopo di
confutare alcuni detrattori della figura del patriarca, i quali ritenevano il gesto di sacrificare
un proprio figlio tutt’altro che straordinario. È dunque con due diversi approcci esegetici che
in quest’opera Filone si era accostato al testo genesiaco: il primo storico-letterale, il secondo più
profondo, nella ricerca del senso intelligibile. L’applicazione di entrambi i metodi e in una
quasi analoga proporzione si ritrova nell’omelia di Origene: come infatti Filone aveva assegnato
un limitato spazio all’esegesi spirituale..., ugualmente fa Origene, ricorrendo alla intelligentiae
spiritalis uia solo nell’ultimo dei dieci paragrafi» (pp. 142-143)].

[1. Chiesa e Scrittura sacra. 2. La chiesa di Origene nel confronto con Eracleone. – Abstract:
«This essay intends to reveal the inspiration that Origen draws from the text of the fourth
Gospel for elaborating and enriching his ecclesiology. It begins by recalling the fundamental
connection, already theorized in De principiis, between the church and the interpretation of
the sacred scriptures, which, in CIo, finds confirmation apart from further opportunities for
deeper studies (cf. CIo I, 21; IX, 133; VI, 1-11; XIX, 44-58). The study then examines more
closely the ecclesiological doctrine developed by Heracleon in the four fragments cited by
Origen, in which the term ‘church’ explicitly appears: fr. 13 and 15, concerning the episode of
the purification of the sanctuary; fr. 25 and 37, related to the episode of the Samaritan woman.
Confronted with this Gnostic doctrine, Origen reacts by both synthesizing and confuting the
Gnostic position, compelled above all to oppose the doctrine of the natures which caracterizes
so strongly the ecclesiology of Heracleon. Particular importance is given to the interpretation
of the category of the ‘many’, which receives its name from the text of John itself – Jn 4:19 –,
first noted by Heracleon and then, probably under his influence, by Origen. For the Gnostic
teacher, the polloiv are symbolized by the Samaritans and are, therefore, indicative of the
psychics and, thus, are outside of the church. For Origen, however, they not only are part of
the church, but also, being those “who no longer believe through the word of the woman but
because they themselves have heard and know” who the saviour of the world is (cf. Jn 4:42),
they come to be identified with the spiritually perfect, with those who are already capable of
passing from the faith to direct knowledge of the Saviour (CIo XIII, 352-362)» (pp. 620-621)].

REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
2.3. Conclusión. – Abstract: «The descent to Capharnaum (“the field of consolation”) in
Heracleon and Origen tends to be interpreted by modern criticism as an allegory for the
mystery of the Incarnation. However, passages from Irenaeus and Origen himself allow us to
consider rather that Heracleon (fr. 11) is able to refer to the descent of Christ into the Jordan
as an image of the descent of Christ in order to console Sophia, who had been abandoned
outside of the pleroma. On Origen’s part, the descent to Capharnaum seems to allude not so
much to the mystery of the Incarnation as to the capacity of the Word incarnate to unite
himself to all the situations of men, for the sake of the disconsolate who encounter them. The
antignostic valence of Origen is found in the fruit this descent bears: the non-exclusion of
salvation from men who are in an inferior situation. At the same time, Origen’s exegesis of
Capharnaum allows for the harmonization of John’s chronology with the synoptic chronology
and its insertion, in its turn, into the plan sketched by the Alexandrian throughout the books,
from book III to book XIII (cf. XIII, 455). The intent sustained by Origen could be understood
as the zeal to respond to Marcion with a diatessaron (in the Alexandrian manner), which
would also explain the hermeneutical parable (X, 15-20) just before the descent to
Capharnaum, the starting point of the Marcionite Christ» (pp. 626-627)].

defines three senses of scriptural meaning within his exegetical theory and applies them within his
homilies and commentaries. Examinations of his practical works shows that the two nonliteral –
psychic and pneumatic – senses independently edify Scripture’s hearer and also relate to
complement the other’s spiritually transformative effects. This work shows that the height of
Origen’s exegetical effort to transform his audience occurs through the interrelationship between
psychich and pneumatic readings of the same biblical passage. Each is a pedagogy within
Scripture, but together, they form a dialectic of mutual reinforcement, which adds meaning to
Greer’s observation that, for Origen, “virtue leads to vision, and vision empowers virtue”» (p. 238)].

[Abstract: «There are four passages which must be analyzed for understanding Origen’s
interpretation of the person of Judas in CIo: 1. CIo XXXII, 19-34; 2. CIo XXXII, 145-168; 3. CIo
XXXII, 229-259; 4. CIo XXXII, 280-317. Following his method of commentary, the following
points can be established: – At the beginning of the betrayal one finds the activity of the devil
“who shoots arrows into the heart of Judas” (Jn 13:2), which is possible because Judas does not
have perfect faith. Thus, Origen highlights, with antignostic intent, the free choice of Judas and
the initiative of the devil, indicating the space for the devil’s activity in every man. Commenting
on Jn 13, he does not presuppose the theory of pre-existence, but affirms that the devil will be
conquered by Christ eschatologically. Judas was excluded not only from the washing of the feet,
but also from being an apostle. There was a time, however, in which Jesus held him dear,
despite his foreknowledge of the betrayal. This poses the problem of how Jesus participates in
the preparation of the betrayal. – Origen affirms that Judas was not bad by nature and that
even after the betrayal he is not entirely bad, but is substantially a person equal to other men.
Even in this specification, there is an antignostic intention. – An important element in the
antignostic tradition seems to have been the interpretation that Judas was an instrument for the
salvation of the world. Origen seems to dialogue with this tradition, above all in the
interpretation of the dipped morsel: in giving it to Judas, Jesus is active and Judas, at the same
moment, looses his peace, permitting the devil to enter into his soul. In this way there are two
grades in the possession of Judas on the part of the devil: a. Jn 13:2: the arrows striking his heart;
b. Jn 13:27: the entrance of the devil. By means of this exegesis, Origen succeeds in explaining
the betrayal as part of the process of salvation begun and directed by Jesus himself and – in the
same moment – as the result of the free choice of Judas and the activity of the devil. In short,
the antignostic tendency of the interpretation of the person of Judas does not consist only of the
affirmation of his free choice, but also of the reflection upon the importance of Judas as the
isntrument for the salvation of the world» (pp. 627-628)].

regarding a central point, the treatment of hermeneutics in Prin. The specific contribution of
book X in this material concerns the problem of the divergence among the gospel stories,
especially between the Gospel of John and the three others. At the beginning of Book X,
Origen dedicates a didactic exposé to this problem (CIo X, 1, 3-36). Here it seems that Origen
tackles head-on for the first time the problem to which he attaches the term diafwniva (never
used previously in his CIo or elsewhere in reference to the contradictions among the Gospels).
In book VI, Origen indicates and applies his rule of proceeding in the interpretation of
passages in John which have parallels in the other Gospels: to quote and examine the parallels
each time in order to show that there is an agreement behind the apparent differences and
to clarify the peculiarities. He also emphasizes that he considers the other Gospels to be the
first context for the Gospel of John and that he understands the four texts as constituting a
gospel corpus. In his interpretations of the differences, he seeks a solution which testifies to
the agreement and complementariness of the Gospels. At the beginning of Book X, he must
explain Jn 2:20ff. and finds himself in a new situation where John’s chronology is
incompatible with that of the other Gospels. On the level of the historical narrative, there is a
diafwniva, a term with a negative connotation which indicates a division and gives evidence
for the presence of a lie, or a ‘non-truth’. If the Gospels are in disagreement, it is because they
do not contain the truth. Addressing the literalists, Origen explains that the truth of the texts
which would appear to contradict one another resides in the spiritual realities: the diafwniva is

resolved by the spiritual interpretation (ajnagwghv). His explanation takes the form of a
complex theoretical exposé in which he shows great daring, though he fails to convince
completely the reader (§§ 3-36)...» (p. 623)].

de comparer l’usage de Paul à celui d’Origène, en se demandant si l’un et l’autre entendent
sous le terme d’allégorie la même démarche herméneutique» (pp. 113-114)].

profound book of Scripture, and therefore the foundation of a Christian theology which is
able to be born only as the exegesis of the revealed text. The Prologue is the heart and key of
the Gospel and is, therefore, the most hidden gnosis of God in as far as it describes not only
the historical revelation of Christ, but also the eternal becoming of God in himself, the
generation of the Son, and the genesis of the spiritual. To decipher the Prologue means,
therefore, to compete with the arduous mythical-speculative exegesis of the Gnostics. Origen
depends systematically upon this exegesis, although he is guided by the demand for criticism,
an overcoming of gnosis, anagoghe, and an inexhaustible passage from the myth to the Logos,
430
REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
and from arbitrary creations of the intelligence of man to the revealed Catholic gnosis.
Origen’s commentary on the Prologue, at least in the first two books that have come to us, is
strongly pronounced by the theogonic articulation of the first two Valentinian tetrads and by
the distinction between the Only-Begotten and the First-Begotten. Abyss, Ennoia, Sophia,
Truth, Life, Logos, Man, and Church become the figures of Origen’s Trinitarian theology,
which demythologizes the gnostic eons, interpreting them as epinoiai of either the unique
hypostasis of the Son or of the created logoi. It is an interpretation of Christianity as gnosis of
the pleroma – of the birth of the Son from the Father, of the eternal intimacy of man in God,
of the genesis of the Spirit, of the life of the logoi in the Logos who creates them, and of the
eternal incarnation of the Logos in the mystical body of the created intellects. This
presupposes neither single borrowings, nor limited points of contact with gnosticism, but the
assumption of the same structure of the Valentinian theological system, despite the fact that
it was opposed as heretical and was criticized as an inadequate and mythologizing
comprehension, therefore still material of God and of creatures» (pp. 618-619)].

Schluß. – Abstract: «This lecture examines two widespread opinions regarding the
Pneumatology of CIo which are found in the German writings on the history of dogma. Since
the time of Harnack, Origen has been accused of having insufficiently developed the
doctrine regarding the Holy Spirit. He is supposed to have been a binitarian in disguise, and
the Holy Spirit is supposed to be a nearly functionless figure in his system. This lecture will
demonstrate, especially in texts from books II, VI, XIII, and XXXII, that these positions,
which W.D. Hauschild, for instance, has also advocated in various publications, cannot be
maintained: Origen develops in CIo a precise description of the role of the Holy Spirit and
assigns to it an important position in salvation history» (p. 619)].

open to question, then we might expect that the intended functions of the individual
Hebrew and Greek columns within Origen’s great text-critical work have also been the
subject of speculation. Our interest here is in the role of the Hebrew text and its
translitteration into Greek characters contained in the first two columns of the Hexapla but,
obviously, the function of individual columns within the Hexapla is to some extent
influenced by its overall function, or functions, for which the synopsis as a whole was
intended. (...) Yet, if the issue of translation is a principal interest of the Hexapla, it must be
deemed noteworthy that very little modern commentary on the Hexapla has concerned itself
with Origen’s theory of language. Language theory is directly relevant to the problem of
translation and, as such, Origen’s thought in this area can cast light on the nature of the
Hexapla and its construction, and, more specifically, highlight the complexity of the role
played by the Hebrew in this work» (pp. 99-100)].

Commento a Giovanni: 1. Riferimenti secondo l’ordine del Commento; 2. Riferimenti secondo
l’ordine dell’Apocalisse. – Abstract: «Undoubtedly the Apocalypse holds greater importance in
Origen’s CIo than it holds in other works. There are numerous references, above all in the first
two books, where ample sections of the text are dedicated to specific comments on passages
(Apoc 22:13; 1:17-18; 19:11-16), and prove to be the most functional sections in the argumentation.
The Apocalypse is considered to be a writing which is very close to the Gospel of John and to the
prophets – in fact, even superior to the prophets on account of its particular acuteness which
was recognized in its comprehension of the divine mysteries. The citations are principally tied to
Christology and revelation, both scriptural revelation and that which is beyond Scripture.
Origen makes use of the Apocalypse above all in order to defend the legitimacy of a spiritual
conception of the truth of faith and of a spiritual reading of the Bible against the opponents
present in the Church, as well as to combat certain Gnostic positions. The comparison with
other works shows that the Apocalypse continues to be appreciated by Origen, but he applies his
interest to other passages, or leads one to reread in a different way the passages commented on
with greater relief in CIo. In every case Origen refuses to concern himself with some sections of
the work (e.g., chapters 13, 17, 18) and separates himself from preceding authors, such as Justin,
Irenaeus, and Hippolytus, who had made great use of the book for describing eschatological
events, from the Antichrist to the thousand-year reign. Yet, examples of spiritual, Christological,
and ecclesiological readings of the Apocalypse are not lacking in the prior traditions from Origen
was able to find inspiration» (p. 628)].

Abstract: «Starting with the definition of Christ as great high priest in CIo I, 255-259, the whole
work has been examined in order to discover the reasons for the high priestly ministry of
Christ. Christ acts as high priest on two levels: as Logos, in the ontological mediation between
the Father and rational beings; and as man, through the soul of Jesus, having received the
priestly unction before the beginning of time to become the intermediary between God and
man. The Gnostic Heracleon takes a similar two-level approach, but with noticeable
differences as regards the limits and purpose of the mission of the great high priest and
saviour. Origen underlines how the saving process comes about according to a plan and an
order corresponding to the merits of the individual, while Heracleon limits the effectiveness
of the Saviour’s priesthood to only two human categories (psychic and spiritual) and envisages
a predetermined order in salvation. This study reveals the importance of the figure of Christ
as high priest in CIo and, more generally, the influence of the Epistle to the Hebrews on
Origen’s exegesis of the Fourth Gospel» (pp. 624-625)].

probably Marcionite. (...) Of the three arguments which Origen uses against the position
expressed in the fragment, the only truly relevant one is the third, which introduces an essential
theme of Origen’s conception of prophecy: the prophets, more than just announcing the future,
have announced the divine mysteries, and they have acquired a knowledge of them that was not

ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
inferior to that knowledge which the Apostles would subsequently have. More precisely, a
fundamental passage of CIo VI, 15-16 distinguishes the perfect and superior prophets, who had
such a gift, from the other prophets, who did not reach that level. Origen makes use of biblical
texts regarding the revelation of the mystery hidden for the ages, in particular Rm 16:25-26 and
Eph 3:5-6; but his theory of the equivalence between the prophets’ knowledge and the knowledge
available after the coming of Christ profoundly modifies the perspective regarding the prophets,
transferring the progress of revelation from universal history to the individual story of the believer.
(...) Discussing some proposals of A. Orbe, the presentation puts into relief the problems
regarding the identification of the two categories of prophets, and the relationship of the
categories with the condition that the individuals who belong to them had as rational beings
before their incarnation: in other words, to what degree is the quality of the perfect prophet tied
to the individual merits? Another brief, but important, passage (CIo I, 37) proposes the parallelism
between revelation prior to the Incarnation of the Son and revelation after the Incarnation. It
confirms the preceding observations by means of the ‘demythologization’ of the notion of the
“fullness of time”. Finally, this paper compares CIo XIII, 300-320 with the preceding passages. In
CIo XIII, 300-320, Origen, though not renouncing the position that the prophets knew in a
perfect manner these mysteries which were communicated to each one of them, accentuates the
superiority of the knowledge accorded to the apostles. Here, the traditional Christian conception
of progress between the first revelation of Christ and that revelation brought by Christ himself is
recovered. Origen strives not to put the two perspectives in a state of formal contradiction, but
maintains clear tensions. It is interesting to note that when, in book XIII, Origen juxtaposes the
traditional conception... with the conception, dear to himself, of the equivalence of the two
revelations, both these positions (and not only the first, as one would expect) present
contradictions with the conception which he set forth in I, 37. With all probability, even here, as
so often in his works, he understands theological thought not as an obligatory reduction to a single
solution, but as a field of inevitable and fecund tensions» (pp. 619-620)].

sémantique large et peu définie; il élabore à partir de là ce qu’il y a de plus original dans sa
pneumatologie. Toutefois, ce procédé n’est pas sans risque: il a joué en sa défaveur, au point
que, dans sa réception au second siècle, l’évangile a été perçu comme un écrit hérétique. Ce
flou sémantique où se sont engouffrés les Montanistes a forcé les Pères de l’Église à avancer à
tout prix un sens pour paravklhto" dans l’évangile. Les Montanistes faisant une utilisation
séduisante du titre pour leur office de prophètes enseignants, c’est Origène qui, en fin
philologue et familier de la Bible grecque, a défini la fonction de “consolateur” dans l’exégèse
johannique. Ce sens, inscrit dans une évolution sémantique logique, est circonscrit à la
recherche savante en matière de traduction grecque de l’Ancien Testament, qu’à lui seul le
docteur alexandrin a synthétisé dans ses Hexaples» (p. 262)].

characteristics of the stylistic form which are more appropriately argumentative; the
relationship between the stylistic procedure and the allegorical procedure; the position of the
text of John in the sentence of Origen. The argumentative form presents a variety of
typologies which are difficult to classify. It is possible, however, to trace certain constants.
One of them in particular may be mentioned: the bipartite structure according to which a
single thought articulates itself in two periods. The first period is brief and assertive with the
tone of a law; the other is long, complex, and rich with subordinate sentences and
parenthetic clauses. The exegetical procedure in its programmatically allegorical point seems
to privilege a stylistic form of a narrative type, or even of an exhortative type, which give
visibility to every particular, as if projecting it or representing it in a scene. The circuit
between the sentence of Origen and the text of John probably remains the most internal
nucleus of the language of CIo. One cannot speak of the text and the explication of the text
as two dualistically distinct and subsequent realities. The synthesis shows its specificity in the
resolution of this dualism. It can often be shaped in such a manner that the linguistic
medium, which allows for the passage from the interpreted text to the interpreting sentence,
becomes hidden and imperceptible, shortened, or even absent by constituting itself as a
vacuum which confers a very remarkable movement to the entire period» (pp. 616-617)].

Abstract: «In book VI of CIo, Origen proposes a refined allegorical interpretation of the Jordan,
comparing the episode of the baptism of Jesus to the crossing of the river under the guidance of
Joshua. The descent of Jesus into the Jordan is the symbol of the Incarnation of the Logos,
either in the mystical dimension of the union with the logikoi, realized in a perfect way only with
the soul of Christ, or in the historical Incarnation. Origen then introduces the crossing of the
river, relating it to the baptism and presenting both as complementary representations of the
same intelligible reality: the baptism represents the initial event, and the crossing represents the
435
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
passage of its actualization from history into eternity. The bond between the two episodes,
beyond that of the common presence of the Jordan, grounds itself upon a rereading of the OT
episode in the light of the christological hymn of Phil 2:6-11; the fundamental motive is that of
the chenosis: the ark which plunges into the river is the symbol of the double ‘descent’ of the
Logos, in the Incarnation and in his death; the exaltation of Jesus (Phil 2:9) recalls the exaltation
which God accorded to Joshua after the crossing of the river. This signifies the reconstitution of
the Son of Man in his divine form and the fulfillment of the salvific mission, i.e., the
amplification of divinization for all rational creatures. In drawing these two episodes together,
the symbolic sense of the Jordan/Logos emerges, in which the entire existential journey of
rational creatures is represented, from the sin of pre-existence to the redemption in the
apocatastasis. It is an itinerary wich goes from a primordial unity, contained in the Logos, to a
phase of division and fragmentation, which only progressively, according to an appropriate order
(characterized by the new cult establish by Joshua), is turned back to God by Christ. Christ
reconstitutes the pre-existent unity of the spiritual pleroma» (p. 625)].

elementi di un possibile Sitz im Leben dell’apologia di Origene, al di là della circostanza
esterna che la muove: in quale misura CC non resta semplicemente un’“opera da tavolino” e
ci offre invece un metro per rivisitare ambienti e dibattiti nella comunità ecclesiale e negli
ambienti religiosi e intellettuali attorno alla metà del III secolo? In secondo luogo, mi interessa
comprendere quale è il profilo letterario dello scritto di Origene: non essendo in ipotesi
un’‘opera di scuola’ – come lo sono, almeno dal punto di vista della loro genesi ambientale, i
commentari esegetici – né tanto meno un testo avvicinabile alla produzione omiletica, quale
statuto preciso riveste quest’opera costruita dal suo autore vincendo l’‘opzione del silenzio’?
Infine, mi sembra che proprio questa alternativa respinta intervenga comunque in maniera
determinante nello stesso articolarsi del discorso apologetico di Origene, anche in relazione al
pubblico mirato da CC. Se la risposta a Celso poggia su due grandi registri continuamente
ripresi – confutazione e elaborazione dottrinale –, fino a che punto l’autore può spingersi
verso un approfondimento del mistero cristiano agli occhi dei lettori dichiarati “infanti”,
“deboli” o addirittura “digiuni” nella fede? Come si vedrà, il confine tra “apologia” e
“testimonianza” è più fluido di quello che la natura del discorso apologetico sembrerebbe
ammettere in via di principio» (p. 111) – Segue la «Discussion» (pp. 142-149)].

– Abstract: «Starting from the conviction that CIo may be examined even as a ‘literary work’, this
contribution intends to clarify how the text came to be structured, what are its principal literary
devices, and what is, in short, the horizon of the ‘implicit reader’. Though not ignoring the
circumstances of composition and the polemical goals which inspire the work of Origen, this
contribution highlights how the exegetical argumentation influences the literary profile of the text.
For the Alexandrian, the discovery of the truth is never separable from its demonstration. This is the
ductus which in general presupposes the exposition. The apodictic requirement is sustained mostly by
the treatment of ambiguities within the Johannine text. Regarding the true construction of the text
itself, despite the frequent recurrence of digressions, it is necessary to recognize that Origen never
436
REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
loses the thread of the argument and always keeps his eye on the complex plan of the text. The
space of the commentary, in fact, is an ‘ordered’ space for the Alexandrian. For this reason it is
arranged as a structured treatise, framed by prologues and epilogues, and united internally to
unitary themes which sometimes return to and develop the argument of the topic in examination.
Along with such aspects, the relationship of the author with the public assumes particular relevance
in Origen for the form which is assigned to his work. In confirmation of what has already been noted
in the opening of the work, the model of ‘collaborative reader’ is profiled. In the conclusions one
observes the importance of the intellectual environment, nourished by the culture of the written
word and habitually applied to the practice of the redaction of texts, of which CIo, even with its
literary profile, gives full testimony» (pp. 615-616)].

441-448.
[Abstract: «Origen wrote: “The God of the universe is God of the election and, therefore, for
a greater reason, he is God of the Saviour of the election”. God is the “God of the election”
because he is free and does not act on account of some sort of determinism or fate. He does
what he wants, forced by no one or no thing outside of his liberty. In exercising his proper
liberty, he does not become a tyrant who accomplishes his own will without taking into
consideration the liberty of the others. Without accelerating the times, he waits for the
realization of that which he wants, up until the maturation of the will of the logikoi. He
desires that which he wants accomplished might be the fruit of the encounter between his
will and the will of the others. The logikoi, having fallen on account of their own choices, are
self-limited in their own liberty. They become slaves of their own choice. In the commentary
on the first sentence of the Letter to the Romans, “Paul servant of Jesus Christ”, Origen poses a
rhetorical question: “In fact, is there such a person who, finding himself in the flesh, is able to
achieve a liberty so complete that he no longer serves the flesh in anything?” (CRm I, 1).
Christ was sent to save all from slavery, in order that man, called by him, might become
“freed by the Lord” (1 Cor 7:21ff in CRm I, 1). As a result, Christ becomes the “Saviour of the
election”, because he saves those who have been made slaves of their own choices. Christ
desires to render them free once again, and make them capable of choices that conform to
the liberty of God himself. The full victory of God and his reign beyond the ages occurs when
God will be able to accomplish all that he wants – not in spite of the choices of the logikoi,
but by encountering their full collaboration in liberty» (p. 624)].

commentary on Jn 1:29... moves along a double exegetical line; Christ is the sacrificial lamb (on
the basis of Is 53) and the paschal lamb. The verse constitutes one of the testimonies of John the
Baptist and indicates a definite moment of growth in the formation of his knowledge: he moves
from being a prophet to being an eye-witness. The reading of the verse, in light of the
interpretation advanced by Heracleon and refuted by Origen, makes way for antignostic
clarifications regarding the unity of the two testaments and the universality of Christ’s work of
salvation. Origen interprets the verse as a witness to the double nature of the Son of God: man,
in his being the lamb destined for sacrifice; God, in his offering the lamb to death. The
interpretation inspires an ample treatment of the theme of sacrifice, victims, and martyrdom (in
respect to both martyrs and Christ himself). The propitiatory value of the sacrifice of Christ,
valid for the entire world, poses a double problem: the clarification of the concept of ‘world’ and
the relationship between the world and the Church. Another element in the reading lies in the
theme of the assumption of sin on the part of Christ and the concomitant necessity of
purification even after the passion. The exegetical element of the “Christ-paschal lamb” image
emerges from the interpretation of Paul in 1 Cor 5:7... who, in his self-offering as the nourishment
(Jn 6:32-36) which is realized through the Scriptures, is the food of salvation» (p. 626)].

far as it is a guarantee, in the antignostic sense, of the identification of justice, goodness, and
omnipotence in God. Origen refutes the anthropocentric vision of redemption in favour of a
cosmic valence, promoted by the doctrine of the participation of creatures in the Logos and of
the participation of the Logos in the Father. In CIo, the primordial creation of creatures in the
Logos is distinguished from the specific creation of man as rational creature in Gen 1:26-27,
which occurred after the sin of the First Terrestrial» (p. 621)].

[Abstract: «The hermeneutical model put into practice by Origen in CIo is extremely open,
being suggestive more than assertive. It holds these qualities in as far as it is founded upon the
criteria of freely deepening, in the spiritual sense, the literal significance of the text by means
of the quaestio. This quaestio is generally carried out by the application of more scriptural
passages to that passage which is under examination. The quaestio is then developed through
the technique of allegory, above all in the interpretation of the deeds of Jesus, but for the
most part without going beyond the literal sense when the object of interpretation is Jesus’
words. In the first two books of the commentary, and many times in the others, the exegesis
enters into the doctrinal exposition, above all where Origen treats the Logos. The Logos is the
unquestioned protagonist of the commentary in its function as intermediary between God
the Father and the world of rational creatures. The Logos is investigated above all in its
relationship with the other epinoiai of Christ, in particular with the most important of these,
Wisdom. By Wisdom, Origen intends the systema of the theoremata thought by God, the Nous,
and by Logos he intends the communication of these to rational creatures» (p. 615)].

[«Dall’analisi alla quale abbiamo sottoposto CMt 12, 9-14 è risultato che in qualche punto TG (= il

l’impressione che in TG fossero cadute alcune parole forse soltanto per errore meccanico. Quanto

SŁOMKA J., Origen’ Reflections on Priesthood and Eucharist in his Homilies on the Book of Leviticus
(pol.), Vox Patrum 23/44-45 (2003) 99-116.
[Summary: «Origen’s reflections on priesthood, as well as his interpretation of the Book of
Leviticus, are based on the assumption that there exists inner priesthood which is inherent in
human nature. Such priesthood means human ability to offer spiritual sacrifices to God.
439
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
Origen points to the human mind as the priest in man. It is the mind that is capable of
turning to God. The spiritual priesthood imposes a moral obligation on every human being.
Only against this background does Origen consider priesthood in the OT and the NT. The
OT priesthood was established by Moses and involved the ability to make both material and
spiritual offerings. That priesthood was an anticipation of the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Jesus
is, at the same time, a priest and a sacrifice. Thus he fulfills all the promises of the OT in
himself. As regards the NT priesthood, Origen points to its relationship with the priesthood of
Jesus Christ. Jesus was the one who established it. Unlike the OT priesthood, it does not
entail making material offerings, but only spiritual ones. Origen does not dwell on the
typological relations between the priesthood of the OT and the NT. He emphasizes, however,
that all Christians are priests for their own souls, and if they fail to fulfill it, even the
priesthood of the Church is of little value. Listing the responsibilities of the Church’s priests,
Origen only mentions teaching and absolving of sins, but he does not relate them to any rites.
The lack of any clear linkage to the celebration of Eucharist is typical of the author. What is
more, the Eucharistic issues are virtually absent from his homilies. Origen does not apply the
OT sacrifice – Eucharist typology. If he invokes texts clearly relating to the Eucharist (e.g. the
description of its establishment), he also gives them a spiritual interpretation: the body of
Christ is the Word. The absence of the Eucharistic themes can be explained as follows: the
Eucharist is celebrated in the Church on a regular basis, and its meaning is clear. Origen
accepts the common understanding of the Eucharist as sufficient for ordinary Christians. In
his homilies, he consciously avoids any Eucharistic teaching and concentrates on the spiritual
dimension while interpreting the passages from the Gospel, as he decides that doing
otherwise would not contribute to the building of the Church and might encourage the
interpretation of the Eucharist as a sacrifice in the OT sense. The homilies contain allusions
to the hidden deeper meaning of the Eucharist, accessible only to the few. This approach to
the theme of the Eucharist is essentially different from that of some decades later: the
Eucharist will become one of the central themes in the catechesis, and Bible commentaries
will raise the Eucharistic issues as frequently as possible» (p. 117)].

Eusèbe de Césarée, Jérôme, Épiphane de Salamine ainsi qu’une déclaration plutôt obscure
d’Origène lui-même dans son Commentaire sur saint Matthieu sur l’interprétation du texte de
Mt 19, 12) ne peuvent pas fournir de preuve définitive de l’autocastration de l’Alexandrin,
même si les autres documents – par exemple l’Apologie de saint Justin, les Actes (gnostiques) de
Jean, les Sentences de Sextus, le Panarion d’Épiphane, les Philosophoumena d’Hippolyte, les
Canons Apostoliques ou le canon 1 du Concile de Nicée – parlent de cas semblables, pratiqués
dans les premiers siècles du christianisme pour des motifs ascétiques ou sous l’influence des
cultes païens (surtout d’Attis et de Cybèle). Certains savants doutent de l’authenticité de
l’acte (K.F. Schnitzer, F. Böhringer, A. Harnack, E. Klostermann, H. Chadwick, J. Dechow).
Selon l’auteur de l’article, l’interprétation spirituelle du texte de Mt 19, 12 (surtout du terme
“eunouchos”), bien connue dans la tradition alexandrine avant Origène (chez Clément
d’Alexandrie), peut témoigner contre l’autocastration de l’Alexandrin. Ce sont justement les
significations différentes de ce mot qui pouvaient faire qualifier Origène de castrat, alors qu’il
était simplement “eunouchos” spirituel, c’est-à-dire décidé à rester célibataire, vivant dans la
chasteté. On peut donc expliquer sa prétendue castration comme un malentendu
terminologique. En tout cas, il est presque impossible de concilier un acte de castration avec
l’exégèse allégorique pratiquée par Origène pendant toute sa vie. Même si Origène s’est
mutilé, ses propres œuvres témoignent qu’il aurait préféré ne pas le faire et elles servent à
toute l’époque patristique d’exhortation à l’“eunuchisme spirituel” (p. 202)].

der antiken Philosophie aufgenommen. All dies beweist gegenseitige Kenntnis und nach

Tatsache, daß nahezu das ganze benutzte Material aus Homilien stammt, trägt zusätzlich
dazu bei, unser Bild von Kirche und Synagoge in den ersten Jahrhunderten zu beleben»].

contributo intende affrontare il problema della ricezione del corpus matteano latino di Origene
(VetInt e CMtS) in età medioevale, a partire dall’uso di esso da parte di due illustri teologi e
autori, Pascasio Radberto e Tommaso d’Aquino. La ragione di tale scelta è essenzialmente
legata al riscontro della presenza massiccia di tale commentario nelle opere di questi due
autori, che fonda il conseguente impegno a fare luce su un fenomeno scarsamente indagato
dalla critica. Quanto a Pascasio Radberto in verità è già stato detto genericamente della sua
dipendenza rispetto al grande Alessandrino nella elaborazione dell’Expositio in Evangelium
Matthaei, mentre a proposito di Tommaso vige un silenzio quasi completo circa le sue possibili
dipendenze origeniane. Il fatto poi che l’esame si estenda a due autori appartenenti a epoche
ed ambienti completamente diversi – la rinascita carolingia dell’VIII e IX secolo da un lato, gli
Ordini mendicanti e le scuole teologiche universitarie dall’altro – non fa che rafforzare il
significato di questa indagine, perché documenta la penetrazione di questo corpus al di là delle
diverse temperie culturali e ne impone la presenza come elemento costante capace di
assicurare continuità alle diverse epoche» (p. 263)].

[X. Some unexpected lacunae and areas for further study: B. Shadow of Origen:
«Melanchthon is... at best ambivalent toward Origen. Though he cites Origen as a witness to
the baptism of infants, Melanchthon finds his allegorical interpretation of scripture excessive
and cautions his readers that Origen shoud be examined with much caution. Melanchthon’s
ambivalence is best seen in his omission of Origen from the chain of teachers» (pp. 44-45)].

Dalla Conclusione: «Did the “Origenism” of Palladius more closely resemble that of the Tall
Brothers than the “Origenism” of Rufinus? This cannot be known for certain, of course, but
one can agree that Rufinus, like Evagrius and Origen before him, occupied himself with
theoretical, apologetic, and doctrinal questions that are unlikely to have confronted monks
living in the desert. True, Palladius was so closely associated with Evagrius that he like
Rufinus and Melania the Elder might have known well the more speculative and problematic
tenets he had derived from Origen. Unlike either Rufinus or Melania, however, Palladius’
interests (like those of the Tall Brothers) were largely confined to the practice of asceticism,
and so it is unlikely that he would have needed to appropriate Origen’s or Evagrius’ more
speculative cosmological or anthropological theories. In this respect, Palladius was probably
very representative of his ascetic confreres, more so than Rufinus. Association alone does not
warrant identification of his theology with that of Evagrius, which should caution against
suggesting too many similarities between Origen and his subsequent readers» (pp. 191-192)].

[«Ein weiterer problematischer Fall stellt sich für Bellarmin bei der Rezeption des Origenes dar.
Dessen Verurteilung macht ihn als “Kronzeugen” der Traditionskontinuität zumindest fraglich,
andererseits kann Bellarmin auf die einflußreiche Philosophie und Theologie des Origenes nicht
verzichten. Vorbereitet wird die partielle Rehabilitation in der frühen Zusammenstellung der
Werke, wenn Bellarmin weitgehend wertungsfrei die gegensätzlichen Stellungnahmen zu
Origenes referiert, um dann die positiven bis in die jüngste Zeit fortzuführen. Beredter ist
jedoch die Tatsache, daß sich Bellarmin an vielen Stellen einfach der Gedanken Origenes’
bedient. Bereits die Extension, die er Origenes dabei einräumt macht deutlich, daß die nicht
verurteilten Schriften ausreichen, um Origenes insgesamt als einen Schwerpunkt der
Argumentation aufzuzeigen. (...) Auch in der vielfachen Verwendung der Predigten des
Origenes stehen hauptsächlich die Calvinisten im Zielpunkt der Kritik Bellarmins» (pp. 55-56)].

[Fra gli aspetti di carattere “strutturale” è da considerare anche la ricezione di Origene: «Es
gibt schließlich natürlich die gezielte, weil kontroverse Positionen präziser und schärfer
artikulieren und fundieren wollende Bezugnahme auf Autoren, die, wenn man so sagen darf,
mit ihren Theorien “Epoche” gemacht haben. Das vielleicht prägnanteste Beispiel für diesen
Typus ist in der Origenes-Rezeption des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts zu sehen, eine Rezeption,
die vor allem durch die 1512 erstmalig erschienene Ausgabe, die Jacques Merlin besorgt hatte,
angeregt worden ist. Als Erasmus 1537 dann seine Ausgabe herausbringt, ist Origenes schon zu
einem Teil eines polarisierenden Diskurses geworden, der, vor allem im sog. Wittenberger
Augustinismus, Augustinus gegen Origenes (wie auch gegen Hieronymus) ausspielt» (p. 195).

mit dem Wort, das der Sohn ist, die Deutung der Schrift als eine Leibwerdung des Logos, ist zu
wenig differenziert, als daß sie nicht zu Fehlschlüssen verführte”. Ohne Zweifel wurde von
Balthasar während seiner Lyoner Studienjahren von Henri de Lubac auf Origenes hingewiesen.

the Apology for Origen, written by Pamphilus and Eusebius. In these passages he actually offers
two fragments from now lost books of this work. It is, however, uncertain whether Socrates used
the original version written by Pamphilus or a version reworked and interpolated by a later
unknown Origenist. From the patriarch Photius (ninth century) we can understand that
different versions of the Apology existed. I suggest that Socrates used a further unknown version
of the original Apology, adapted to the Origenist controversies of c. 400» (p. 103)].

Conclusione: «Da quanto detto mi sembra che sia stata sufficientemente dimostrata
l’infondatezza dei dubbi di Hägg in relazione all’autenticità del Contra Hieroclem. Un altro
punto è da mettere in rilievo. È singolare che lo studioso, da un lato, cerca di trovare
argomenti a favore della sua tesi, ma, dall’altro, nella conclusione del suo esame, dopo aver
rilevato l’assenza del Contra Hieroclem nell’elenco delle opere che compare in Girolamo, De
viris illustribus 81, mette in evidenza che esso è presente fra gli scritti attribuiti ad Eusebio da
Fozio, e che tutti i codici, compreso quello autorevole di Areta, attribuiscono unanimemente lo
scritto alla penna di Eusebio» (p. 416)].

[«Au total, du point de vue du nombre des psaumes messianiques, les Eklogai se situent entre
la Démonstration et le Commentaire sur les psaumes. Au fur et à mesure de son existence,
Eusèbe a-t-il accru le nombre des psaumes messianiques? Mais les Eklogai paraissent
antérieures à la Démonstration. La chronologie ne permet pas d’expliquer le constat qui vient
d’être fait. En réalité, on peut se demander s’il ne faut pas distinguer deux groupes d’œuvres
eusébiennes: les Eklogai et la Démonstration, d’une part, qui sont à peu près de la même
époque, et le Commentaire sur les psaumes, qui est beaucoup plus tardif. En ce cas, la mise en
relation de l’accroissement du nombre des psaumes messianiques avec la chronologie serait
pertinente. Resterait toutefois à comprendre la variation du nombre des psaumes
messianiques dans le premier groupe d’œuvres. Peut-être est-elle due à l’organisation de la
matière, par livres bibliques dans les Eklogai, par thèmes dans le cas de la Démonstration. En
effet une telle organisation favorise le repérage systématique des passages messianiques de
l’AT en ce qui concerne les Eklogai, mais elle favorise leur sélection en ce qui concerne la

assessment and translation of the Greek he used in introducing such quotations, indicates
beyond doubt that he did not quote Ezechiel’s play Exagoge directly, but through the mention
of Alexander Polyhistor. Recognition of this state of affairs demonstrates that the Mosesexaltation motif in Ezekiel’s drama is properly to be located in the Hellenistic, rather than in
Christian, period» (p. 75)].

palestinese (che non sembra attestare, se non per il Ps. 118, il commento atanasiano), e
soprattutto per la loro coerenza con un frammento che li precede e che è attribuito a Eusebio
dalla stessa catena. La catena palestinese è, invece, su questa parte del Salterio, testimone
privilegiata per il commento eusebiano, composto, per quanto riguarda il Ps. 132, da cinque
(secondo Robert Devreesse) o sei (secondo Ekkehard Mühlenberg) frammenti. La
dipendenza del testo atanasiano da quello di Eusebio da una parte e dall’altra la complessità
dei dati che emergono da un’estensione dell’esame ad altri rappresentanti della tradizione

deux Synopses, on peut être tenté d’opposer la Synopse cohérente de Jean Chrysostome (ou du
Pseudo-Jean Chrysostome) à la Synopse incohérente du Pseudo-Athanase. Mais en fait il faut
nuancer ce diagnostic. Certes, l’auteur de la première Synopse a eu le mérite de mettre au
point une tripartition de l’Ancien Testament parfaitement homogène, en ce sens qu’elle fait
appel à des critères de même type, – des critères de contenu –; et cette tripartition est
probablement la plus satisfaisante de toutes celles que les Pères ont proposées. Mais l’auteur
de la Synopse lui-même insiste sur les limites de la distinction entre histoire, exhortation et
prophétie, puisque chacune de ces parties de la Bible contient à titre secondaire des passages
qui relèvent des deux autres parties. Dans le cas du Pseudo-Athanase, il est vrai que les deux
modèles canoniques qu’il tente de faire se correspondre sont incompatibles et qu’il aboutit à
des incohérences et des contradictions. Mais, en même temps, à la différence de Jean
Chrysostome, il a le mérite de brasser plusieurs corpus littéraires, dont il a bien senti qu’ils
entretenaient des rapports entre eux. Même s’il n’a pu proposer un modèle interprétatif
satisfaisant, il a posé un vrai et vaste problème, ce que ne fait pas Chrysostome. En définitive,

[Abstract: «The library of the convent of Dayr al-Suryan, Wadi an-Natrun, Egypt, represents the
single most important collection of Syriac manuscripts to have survived into the modern period.
Taking as a starting point the preservation in this collection of the Syriac translation of the Festal
Letters of St Athanasius (the Greek original of which is lost), the author examines the role of the
tenth century abbot Moses of Nisibis in the building of this collection. When the manuscripts
added by Moses to the library are viewed in the context of the history of early Syriac literature, it is
discovered that the possibility that Moses was able to acquire such a rich body of very early
manuscripts precisely because they represented literature of diminished interest in the heartland
of Syriac culture, must be given serious consideration» (Reperibile on line all’indirizzo

e allusioni restano numericamente irrilevanti ma oltremodo significativo risulta il collegamento
alla vita nuova inaugurata dal battesimo con l’inabitazione di Dio in ogni credente, in
cammino progressivo verso la deificazione. Pur con qualche isolata concessione (poetica) al
mito, maggior peso e numero, non diversamente dalla tradizione anche profana, riceve la
metafora dello scita “barbaro’, che il sodalizio cappadoce rende di drammatica attualità
facendola veicolo di denuncia e condanna delle violenze degli ariani e degli stessi imperatori

(image); second, in a rudimentary manner, identify the Cappadocians works available in the
sixteenth century (substance); third, chart the influence of both the Cappadocian image and
substance in the works of Philip Melanchthon; and finally, note some areas where one does not
find the Cappadocian influence (or comment) one might expect. If this study has succeeded in
anything, it has been to show that Cappadocian influence upon Melanchthon warrants further
study, especially the second goal. The Cappadocians are a fascinating point of interest because
they help us to illuminate not only Melanchthon’s use of patristic sources but also chart the
availability and influence of Latin translations and perhaps (most important) Greek texts
available in the sixteenth century» (p. 46)].

drawn from the meagre results of an examination of Cappadocian references to Athens, it
would be that Gregory of Nazianzus differs from the others as well as from previous tradition
in his references to Athens. Basil, in his words on Athens, connects well with Origen and
Eusebius, without, however, coming anywhere near their much more profound discussions,
and Gregory of Nyssa connects with Athanasius. But where in early Christian literature do we
find parallels with the Nazianzen’s treatment of Athens? What he has in his mind is somehow
neither the real Athens of his own day, nor the biblical Athens. It is rather his own imaginary
Athens, or perhaps we might say, his heavenly Athens» (p. 132)].

martyr during the Great Persecution. Some seventy years later, in the context of the annual
commemoration of her death, Basil delivers in her martyrium a panegyric on her. Drawing on
traditional stereotypes, Basil’s homiletical genius turns the narrative of the event of the past
into the presentation of the martyr as an example of Christian virtuous life to be imitated by
Christians living in the 370s. Three elements have been highlighted in this contribution. As a
woman who ‘became male’, Julitta can inspire the members of Basil’s community to achieve
the same: the women are encouraged to become ‘male’ themselves, whereas the men are
exhorted not to be inferior to their female counterparts. As a martyr, she can serve as an
example reminding Christians that it is possible to remain steadfast in the faith in troubled
times. As a widow, she may be a model of Christian virtue for the group of widows living in
Caesarea. In this way, Basil turns Julitta, a martyr belonging to a fairly distant past, into a
source of inspiration for both the present and the future» (pp. 279-280)].

Christ’s weeping as an example for all Christians. Since these three works belong to the last

hombre a Dios reviste en sus primeros escritos una forma origeniana. En ellos, esta asimilación
es vista como el resultado de la actualización de una potencia recibida en la creación, por
medio del empeño moral, en el que el Capadocio, tambien en continuidad con el maestro
alejandrino, fundia empeño humano y don divino como aspectos de una misma realidad
indiferenciada. Tras una reflexión impulsada por el debate con los anomeos, quienes
afirmaban que el hombre poseía la semejanza con Dios como algo proprio para rebajar la
condición divina del Verbo, elaboró una nueva noción de asimilación a Dios, vista ahora como
una divinización que la gracia otorga al alma purificada. Aunó así la exigencia moral, que
caracteriza el pensamiento de Orígenes sobre la asimilación, con la precisión doctrinal
desarrollada por Atanasio de Alejandría en el enfrentamiento con los arrianos de la primera
hora» (p. 238)].

pagan philosophical schools: Gregory infuses the pagan themes with Christian spirit. His aim

doctrine and to provide the addressee of poem II, 2, 5, a Christian youth who wants to study

rhetoric, with a practical example of how to approach the pagan cultural heritage. This study
also discusses the hypothesis, previously put forth in the literature, that in II, 2, 5 vv. 116 ss.

BØRTNES J., Rhetoric and mental images in Gregory, in Gregory of Nazianzus: Images and Reflections, 3757.
[«We might, I think, come closer to Gregory’s rhetoric of cognition if we could modify Barbel’s
formulation to the effect that human beings are not “given earthly knowledge of God”, but
knowledge of God is “given to them as a task”... This would enable us to understand the
instability and fluidity of Gregory’s verbal imagery, as he moves between the recollection of a
biblical past that can never be recovered, and a future that can never be defined. Haunted
by the possibility of divine presence, Gregory creates a discourse in which this presence is
continually postponed and displaced by the never-ending generation of new and different
images» (p. 57)].
BURRUS V., Life after death: The martyrdom of Gorgonia and the birth of female hagiography, in Gregory
of Nazianzus: Images and Reflections, 153-170.
[«Similarities between Gregory’s encomium of his sister and other near-contemporaneous
narratives of women’s lives have received remarkably little attention. Indeed, the persistent
dubbing of Gregory of Nyssa’s Life of Macrina as the first female hagiography effectively
erases the Nazianzen’s fraternal tribute from the history of female Lives, an erasure for which
Pierre Maraval offers explicit generic justification: whereas the Life of Macrina is a philosophic
biography, the encomium of Gorgonia is a funeral oration and thus (he implies) essentially
incomparable. The oration for Gorgonia will, however, take its place more comfortably in the
history of women’s Lives if we resist the temptation to view female hagiography as a stable or
bounded genre with a clearly defined lineage. I would suggest that female hagiography is
more helpfully understood not as the legitimate Christian daughter of biography (or of any
other single genre) but rather as the collective effect of particular intertextual practices that
transgress boundaries between genres promiscuously, producing a field of texts at once
completely overlapped and intricately differentiated» (pp. 154-155)].

poetry there are ten epitaphs dedicated to himself, interesting because, written in the last
years of his life, they reveal the way he felt and lived his nearing end. The first two poems (AG
VIII 77-78) are dedicated to himself and his relatives, while the third and the fourth (carm. II
1, 92; AG VIII 79) are short autobiographies. The other six synthetically suggest, one after the
other, salient aspects and events of his life. In this way emerge Gregory’s psychological and
spiritual traits, the ties with the epigrammatic Hellenistic poetry, the use of philosophical and
biblical concepts to express his vision of life and death, service to the Trinity, the high value
of the priesthood, his great affection for his loved ones and his sorrow for their death, soothed
by faith in the resurrection and eternal life» (p. 72)].

begin with, a comprehensive account of his life was available in the form of first- and thirdperson autobiographies, often contradictory in tone. In fact, the first biographer of Gregory
was none other than Gregory himself! Several scholars have recently made a good case that in
these and other writings he projected a self-created holiness, but, significantly, long before
their publications, such works as the Carmen de se ipso, the Or. 42 (De se ipso in concilio

its human ties were for him of profound value: they were the constituent factors of his very
self as a philosopher. This was not at least because as a philosophical family his parents,
siblings and children all played their own distinct role for Gregory as the messenger of the
Logos. His eugeneia had predestined his path towards the divine, and his siblings’
philosophical lives, each according to their own sphere, manifested the power of their shared
eugeneia and hence that of his own predestination. Yet, the very nature of his ties to his own,
human family mirrored the ties that bound him, too, to his physical self. This physical self
and its transformation through the love of the Logos was the precondition for Gregory’s own
fecundity: his words, which brought forth and purified his children» (p. 191)].

[Abstract: «As bishop of the city, Gregory of Nazianzus presided for a time over the council of
Constantinople (381), that enthroned him, before being forced to resign his episcopal throne.
In the De uita sua, he obviously criticizes the conclusions of the council regarding the third
article of its creed. Up to now, scholars have taken for granted that Gregory declares this very
same creed to be “pious” (orthodox). But how could it be the case, as in the same passage
(v. 750-755) Gregory blames the ambiguity of the council’s “teachings” for having misled the
bishops devoted to the divinity of the Holy Spirit? Instead of expending boundless ingenuity
in order to remove this inconsistency, we should more reasonably assume that the phrase tov
t∆ ejn mevsw/ khvrugma eujs ebw'" e[cwn refers to the Theodosian edict of January 10th, 381. Such
an approach will provide us a firmer basis for grasping Theodore’s policy, Gregory’s role
during the council, and the reasons for the latter’s resignation» (p. 76)].

rhetorical structure of the speeches. This will be my point of departure too; but I shall then
go on to discuss other literary aspects: how he chooses to fill and organize the various
structural parts, and how he controls and manipulates the conventions – more so, it would
seem, the more familiar he becomes with the form. I shall also apply the comparative
perspective to his narrative technique in the encomium parts of the speeches, to his
spectacular use of at least one dramatic incident in each speech, and to his methods of
characterization. After all, Gregory is not only arguably the most accomplished Greek orator
after Demosthenes, but a consummate literary artist as well, with a register much broader
than the modern label rhetorician would imply» (p. 134)].

[«Gregory’s poetry has been studied so far mainly in terms of literary allusions, for the light it
throws on the reception of classical texts, not least Sappho, whom Gregory quotes more than
any other Christian writer (another surprising aspect of this extraordinary monk). It has also
been scrutinized for its historical and autobiographical evidences, domains where it plays a
459
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
role so fascinating to the interpreter that it often becomes a major source for the
interpretation of important aspects of the period, despite the caveats one needs to register
concerning the highly charged apologetic nature of the sources, especially when relating the
events after 381. The poetry has, to a lesser extent, been quarried for the epitomes of
theological teaching it offers, often paralleling and synopsising the more extensive and
complex doctrines offered in the Orations. In this regard the Carmina Arcana formed an early
core of the corpus of Gregory’s “Collected Poems”, and have attracted most theological
attention ever since. More recently the poems have drawn interest in relation to the
psychological persona of Gregory. (...) It is noticeable how few have analyzed the poetry in
terms of its own matrices and intellectual contexts, that is the rhetorical and literary
expectations of Second Sophistic rhetoric» (pp. 193-194)].

«Gregory’s conception of God is inseparable from the argumentative strategies by which it is
formed. A remarkable feature of these strategies is that the Theological Orations display a
comparatively high degree of detachment from the particular circumstances of their
composition. In contrast to Basil’s and Gregory of Nyssa’s textual demolition of Eunomius’
treatises, it seems that Gregory’s arguments, without losing their specific target and polemical
stance, are not so much involved in actual polemic as in imitating it, drawing a picture or map
of a conceptual battlefield. Gregory has chosen to fight his adversaries on his own ground,
reducing them to hypothetical positions on his conceptual map» (pp. 84-85)].

education waned, particularly during recent centuries in which technical rhetoric slowly
passed into the background and philosophical rhetoric all but died from lack of attention,
could Gregory be viewed as a muddled minister or a simple preacher rather than the
Theologian. My hope is that the sometimes baffling understandings of various postmodernists
and some of their critics will move us out of the “greenhouse” reliance on syllogistic logic and
its variants in theology into a fuller engagement with the rough and tumble of the streets.
The Theologian’s insistence on the importance of images and mental pictures is clarified in
such conversations. Dialogue between theology and science reformulates some of his
argument in Or. 28 that because we know so little about nature and human nature, it is not
odd to recognize how limited is our knowledge of God» (p. 33)].

[Sameness or to one’s self. Enargeia: Infinity and otherness. Mirrors: Receptivity and reflection.
Becoming another. – «The following paper discusses Gregory of Nazianzus’ responses to Greek
models of ontology by surveying the interrelation between three distinct registers in his work:
(a) his aesthetics of discourse, that is, his view on what ideal discourse is and how it operates,
(b) his anthropology, his view of the ideal human self, or what may be termed aesthetics of
existence, and (c) his projected persona, his self-representation. Through this joint examination
I wish to show how Greek models of ontology, which were intrinsic in classical, hellenistic, and
late antique Greek philosophical and rhetorical theory, functioned as the discursive horizon
from which Gregory, a Christian rhetor, performed. It is this horizon that I term “the constraint”
and which, I argue, was an ambiguous boundary simultaneously delimiting and inviting
transgression, a finitude as well as an imaged infinity» (p. 59)].

human nature in relation to divinity. The Cappadocians never thought that uncreated and

of Christ/God as agonothetes before Gregory of Nyssa. 4. The agonothetes-image in Gregory
of Nyssa’s writings. 5. A link with the varied religious make-up of Gregory’s congregation.
6. General conclusions. – Summary: «This article studies the metaphor of the agonothetes
(president of the games) as it is applied on God or Christ. First I sketch how the original
historical background of the games in Greek, Hellenistic and Roman times, together with the
vocabulary developed within the philosophical genre of the diatribe, brought about the
agonistic language of the Pauline writings of the NT, which in their turn resulted in the
development of an agonistic language which was used by the earliest Christian authors. In
the wake of these authors, this agonistic terminology offered later patristic writers the terms
and concepts to speak about martyrdom and about the growth towards the ideals of
Christian virtue and spiritual perfection. It is within this framework that Gregory of Nyssa, in
line with the authors before him, was employing the metaphor in question. Gregory’s
anthropology, however, provides a particular framework within which the agonothetes model
can operate: on the one hand the agonothetes-image helps to articulate Christ’s attitude of
loving support towards the martyr and martyrdom, while it serves on the other in the context
of parenesis to strive towards spiritual perfection» (p. 31)].

apokatastasis is examined from the viewpoint of his image-theology and of the exitus-reditus
scheme, where the Trinity is the origin and the term of man. If the analysis does not stop at a
synchronic moment, but extends itself diachronically to the whole of Gregory’s works, it
becomes clear that there is no idea of universal salvation, but only of universal resurrection.
The possibility of an eternal condemnation is required by the Christological dimension of his
eschatology: the refusal of Christ, the perfect image, implies the dehumanization and the
exclusion from the participation (but not from the knowledge) of the Trinitarian inner life»

Macedonianos pneumatomachos, de Spiritu Sancto) gives the impression of having been written
after the First Council of Constantinople. The doctrine of Gregory on the Holy Spirit is fully
developed here, not only in terms of His divinity, but also in the concepts by which we
differentiate the Holy Spirit from the created world and from the other two Divine Persons.
In this work, the vision of Gregory presents his line of thought in an explicit and well-defined
way, with reference to trinitarian theology as well as with reference to christology and
anthropology. In the Maced. Gregory writes a small treatise on the divinity of the Holy Spirit in
opposition to the Pneumatomachs, and in doing so he not only provides a lesson in the
reasons on which belief in the divinity of the Holy Spirit is based, but also analyses in depth
the consideration of His unity with the Father and the Son and the difference between
them. It is fascinating that he analyses His origin and position in the vita intratrinitaria. This
he does with great prudence, not wanting to distance himself from the Scriptures: the Spirit
proceeds from the Father (cf. Jn 15, 26), is received by the Son (cf. Jn 16, 14), and is sent (cf.
Jn 14, 26 and 15, 26). He is Glory and the Glorifier» (pp. 475-476)].

life and in the choice of good. For Gregory, people are in a condition to restore the image of

Abstract: «The historical and topical proximity of Greek philosophy and Christian theology
makes it possible to compare the “path of education” in Plato (focusing on his dialectics) and
Evagrius Ponticus (focusing on his work Ad Monachos). A more detailed investigation into the
Platonic dialectics shows that an important element of the Platonic idea of paideia is a
shaping of the path of education which is unknown to the disciple. Such a way of guiding a
disciple (or young monk) is also present in Evagrius. However, there is an essential difference
in the way in which both ways of education present themselves. Plato claims that his way –
without any presuppositions – leads to a truth which is not yet known; he claims that the way
of paideia is an enrichment not only for the disciple but also for the teacher, while, in reality,
the teacher must already be in possession of the truth. This is a form of tutelage. In the
monastic way of educational progress, on the other hand, the fact that the teacher does
already know about the goal of the educational way, and thus the presuppositions of the way
of paideia, are known to the young monk. Actually, he seeks for the guidance of a “spiritual
father” already within the horizon of the specific Christian truth (i.e. the incarnation of
Truth in Christ); he begins the way of monastic education in order to deepen his
understanding of the mysteries of Christian faith – by means of learning from the older
monk» (pp. 231-232)].

[«In generale, l’impressione che si ricava dalla testimonianza sinesiana è che siamo di fronte a
uno scontro di poteri, che non sono tanto i proprietari terrieri libici da un lato e i funzionari
governativi dall’altro, quanto, piuttosto, le fazioni, quella alleata con il funzionario (civile o
militare) e quella opposta. A seconda che Sinesio si trovi nell’una o nell’altra, i funzionari
vengono considerati in una luce positiva o negativa. Inevitabile, che siano considerati uomini
spregevoli i parvenus come Andronico. La visione della realtà sociale cirenaica che se ne ricava
è, dunque, senz’altro parziale, perché l’ottica è sempre quella delle classi aristocratiche – nulla
è detto, infatti, della povera gente – e Sinesio, eletto vescovo perché ricco e influente,
mantenne sempre l’animo del potente curiale, la cui famiglia aveva a Cirene una lunga
tradizione evergetica e non mancava occasione di esercitare il suo patronato e di far valere le
sue amicizie importanti, in favore però sempre di membri delle classi aristocratiche» (p. 211)].

REPERTORIO BIBLIOGRAFICO
[«Recently Dennis Brown has contributed the chapter on Jerome to P.F. Esler’s very highly
acclaimed Early Christian World. Brown’s chapter is a general account of Jerome’s life and
achievement. A great deal of space is however devoted to his work on the Bible. Such
disproportion is pardonable in an essay by the author of Vir Trilinguis, which has likewise
been highly praised. It is therefore unfortunate that what Brown says in both this book and in
the recent contribution to Esler’s survey should be marked by a close and unacknowledged
resemblance to wording employed by earlier scholars. This phraseological affinity has hitherto
escaped the notice of reviewers of both Vir Trilinguis and of Early Christian World» (p. 499)].
– Persius in Jerome, Maia 57 (2005) 1-11.
[«Simon Verepaeus reports that the obscurity of Persius’ language caused Jerome to throw his copy
of this poet into the fire in exasperation. The anecdote is of course apocryphal. It would seem on
the contrary that Persius’ difficult and bizarre phraseology exercised a powerful fascination on
Jerome, who can be demonstrated to have been prone to echo it. Considerable scholarly effort has
been devoted to the identification of these Persian reminiscences. It would nevertheless appear
possible to make several additions to the dossier. At the same time a number of the imitations
which have already been posited can evidently be shown to be illusory» (p. 1)].

[«Non potendo ovviamente procedere ad un esame sistematico, propongo soltanto qualche
osservazione su adv. Iovin. 2,7, un capitolo che, per quanto strettamente legato a 2,5-6 (a 2,6,
soprattutto), presenta un’autonomia contenutistica e una compattezza strutturale che lo
rendono facilmente isolabile nell’ambito della pur organica refutatio della terza tesi
giovinianea. La sua origine compilativa evidenzia al meglio criteri, meccanismi e significati
della tecnica adottata da Gerolamo, consentendo di comprendere l’entità reale e soprattutto
le direzioni di senso assunte dall’ipotesto. Si vedrà così che talora lo Stridonense si avvale del
De abstinentia come un semplice repertorio di notizie e conferisce ai passi estrapolati una
funzione strumentale, in buona sostanza accessoria rispetto alle proprie argomentazioni;
talaltra invece egli attribuisce a quei passi un ruolo semanticamente forte, facendoli diventare
veri e propri assi concettuali della compilazione, delle sue ragioni, del suo strutturarsi e dei suoi
esiti. Apparirà chiaro, in conclusione, come non sia legittimo tradurre l’estensione dei prestiti
porfiriani in equivalente rilevanza ideologica (meno che mai in consonanza di punti di vista) e
come spesso, anzi, riprese insignificanti dal punto di vista testuale siano spie preziose del rilievo
sostanziale assunto dal testo-base» (p. 117)].

F. Glorie du Commentaire sur Daniel de Jérôme dans CCSL LXXV A), il est communément
admis que cet ouvrage a été composé en deux étapes: d’une part, pour répondre à la demande
de Paulin de Nole, en 398, Jérôme aurait composé un De Antichristo (399); puis, en 407, il aurait
dédicacé l’ensemble du Commentaire sur Daniel à Marcella et Pammachius, y insérant le traité
sur l’Antichrist: c’est du moins ce qui semble ressortir des manuscrits, d’après l’éditeur, certains
présentant une forme très brève du texte. Or, à y regarder de plus près, les choses sont moins
claires. Partant d’une étude précise des manuscrits, l’étude entend proposer une nouvelle thèse
sur la transmission du De Antichristo: celui-ci aurait été composé en 407, en même temps que
l’ensemble de l’In Danielem; quant aux manuscrits sur lesquels se fonde l’opinion de F. Glorie, ils
ne constitueraient qu’une abbreuiatio médiévale de l’ouvrage exégétique de Jérôme» (p. 53)].

chronologie assez précise de ses œuvres et par là aussi des lectures qu’il a pu faire et qu’il

[«En définitive, l’étranger du Psaume 38, 13, ne serait-ce pas Jérôme en personne: croyant
enthousiaste et sincère, moine installé loin de sa patrie, portant en sa chair ce qui constitue à
ses yeux l’un des traits essentiels de la condition du chrétien? Ne se compare-t-il, au
demeurant, à Abraham, dans la lettre 58 à Paulin, pour avoir quitté famille et patrie? Or
Abraham est, on l’a vu, le locuteur-type du Psaume 38, 13, même en l’absence de citation
expresse. Si cette hypothèse est juste, derrière le savant appareil scripturaire utilisé par Jérôme
pour expliquer la Bible par la Bible, se dessinerait en filigrane un personnage plus original et
authentique qu’on ne le croit d’ordinaire» (p. 383)].

exercises in hagiography, his Paul, Malchus, and Hilarion, as printed in our standard editions,
lack dedications. The manuscript tradition, however, reveals a special (possibly first) edition
of the Hilarion explicitly dedicated to the ascetic Roman woman Asella. The present study
reviews the nature of the pertinent manuscript evidence, identifies the discovery of the
dedication in the early seventeenth century, and then discusses the dedication’s loss from
scholarly sight (and why it was lost), until its rediscovery by a graduate student at the
University of Illinois in the 1930s. Finally, the literary and social contexts prompting Jerome’s
dedication of this particular vita to Asella are discussed» (p. 286)].

telles origines, on aurait pu s’attendre à la rencontrer dès les œuvres de sa jeunesse où se
manifestent encore les souvenirs et les réflexes scolaires. Il faut donc croire qu’elle était sortie
de la mémoire de Jérôme ou qu’elle n’y demeurait qu’à l’état de latence... attendant une
occasion pour remonter jusqu’à sa conscience d’écrivain. Cette occasion s’offre à lui, en 397,

conséquent, les distances prises. Jérôme se sert des prodiges pour laisser filtrer son angoisse
personnelle des conflits civils qui ne cessent de menacer l’Empire, d’Auguste à Valens, soit sur
toute la durée couverte par la Chronique. Jérôme partage ainsi avec les historiographes latins
prosénatoriaux du IVe siècle une vision de l’histoire marquée davantage par un amour de la
Rome éternelle et de sa grandeur passée que par des convictions religieuses» (p. 190)].

[Examination of the text of the Commentary: Prologue; Chapters 1 to 6; Chapters 7 to 9;
Chapters 10 to 12. – Abstract: «Jerome was a mature scholar when he wrote his commentary
on the book of Daniel. In this commentary he attempts to counter the views of Porphyry, who
dated the book to the Maccabean period. Porphyry interpreted the book in that context,
thereby understanding the book as prophecy after the event, or ex eventu. Jerome questioned
this view and especially the view that Daniel was not prophecy of Christ. He maintained an
eschatological, and especially a christological view of Daniel. This paper examines the
arguments of both scholars as represented by Jerome, seeing each in his own time and place,
and looks especially at Jerome’s counter arguments. It notes how each was limited by his own
context, and yet was enriched by it. From today’s perspective each was right and each was
wrong, but they both made a contribution to the ongoing discussion over the biblical book»

Froben in 1516, the catalogue “De viris illustribus” appears as a kind of appendix at the end of the

tenets of Erasmus’ programme for restoring the literary monuments of Christian antiquity, as set
out in the preface to Archbishop Warham at the beginning of the same volume. Jerome’s
tendentious account of Christian writers and their works, shorn of its medieval continuations,
already contains most of the key elements of Erasmus’ revivalist conception of bonae literae.
Acknowledgment of these bibliographical facts entails some corrections to the views of Erasmus’
Christian humanism recently put forward by István Bejcy and Lisa Jardine» (p. 375)].

his exegesis, perhaps even that of Valerius, bishop of Hippo. Augustine has clearly read
Origen’s Homilies on Ezechiel in Latin, and he is aware of some of the Alexandrian’s exegeses
(may be through the Milanese circle?). Tertullian, Victorinus of Poetovio, Ambrose and the
Ambrosiaster can moreover be identified as sources. With respect to the Gospels, a
comparative study of the exegeses of Augustine and of those of his contemporaries leads to
the conclusion that he drew on the same commentaries as in 390-392, most probably those of
Victorinus of Poetovio and Fortunatian of Aquileia» (p. 65)].

[«Für das Thema Christologie und Soteriologie ergibt der Versuch, Responsiones 12 in den
Rahmen des cyrillischen Denkens einzuordnen, daß Cyrills Beharren auf der
eschatologischen Spannung der Heilsverwirklichung im Zusammenhang steht mit seiner
Sicht des gefallenen Menschen und mit einer dieser Sicht entsprechenden Christologie. Das
wahre Menschsein Christi, das unter dem Primat des Logos alles in der menschlichen Natur
verwurzelte Böse besiegt, bildet den ontologischen Grund für unser Heil-Werden, das sich
freilich erst in der kommenden Welt vollenden wird. Neben den mancherlei “nichttheologischen Faktoren”, die den Weg der Dogmengeschichte stets mitbestimmt haben, wird
eine gedanklich konsistente Konzeption erkennbar, die zu Cyrills Haltung gegen Nestorius,
gegen Origenes – und auch gegen Pelagius führte» (pp. 62-63)].

[«In what follows, I should like to present a small selection of case studies in textual criticism.
All of them are drawn from the first two books. Like the fragments of Julian’ s treatise, which
Cyril regularly quotes and which have enjoyed some popularity with editors ever since the
time of the Enlightenment, books 1-2 have fared considerably better in the past than the rest
of the work: there is a valuable edition by Paul Burguière and Pierre Évieux, which was
published in 1985 in the series Sources Chrétiennes. Nevertheless, based on a fresh examination
of the whole manuscript tradition, further improvements may still be achieved» (pp. 515-516)].

aspects of Cyril’s and Nestorius’ Mariology. He also examines the conflict between them with
477
ADAMANTIUS 12 (2006)
regard to the way the title qeotovko" was being used for the Virgin Mary. It was supposedly the
cause of disagreement between the two different theological foundations, Antioch and
Alexandria. However, through the author’s analysis of some extracts of the discourse of
Nestorius and the letters of Cyril we notice that the conflict in fact centered on a Christological
theme: the Antiochian rejection of the Alexandrian theology regarding the principle of
communicatio idiomatum as the sole basis of the hypostasis of the natures of the Incarnated
Christ. In fact, neither Cyril nor Nestorius showed any specific Mariological interest before
Ephesus. Cyril gave emphasis to the Marian title only to oppose his enemy and to destroy his
opponent’s reputation in the east as well as in Rome. Nestorius on the other hand preferred to
call Mary “Mother of Christ” instead of “Mother of God” not so much to reflect his concern for
the exact definition of the nature of Christ. Scholars, upon a closer study of Nestorius’ work
found less heretical aspects in them. In the second part of the study, the author focuses his
attention on the analysis of some passages of Cyril’s exegetical works. Here we note the basic
attitude and the constant proclamations of the bishop of Alexandria on the traditional
Mariological thoughts of his own Church regarding the themes of the Davidic descent of Mary,
her Virginity (which was oftentimes found in the anti-Judaic and anti-pagan polemics), and the
weaknesses at the foot of the cross. Basing his assertions on both the Scriptures and Church
Fathers, Cyril treated these topics with much firmness» (pp. 284-285)].

à Constantinople semblent se limiter à Jean le Cubiculaire, dont il a peut-être bénéficié de
l’hospitalité, et Constantin le Sacellaire. C’est bien peu pour justifier une origine
constantinopolitaine. Au contraire l’intégration de Maxime dans un réseau de relations palestinien,
notamment la ‘communauté’ de Saint-Sabas, comme on le voit et dans ses prises de positions et
dans ses relations avec Sophrone et les higoumènes du concile de Latran, sont un argument de
poids en faveur d’une origine palestinienne. On peut supposer en plus de cela, une formation à
Alexandrie où il entretient quelques contacts. Les relations avec les grands de l’Afrique pourraient,
quant à elles, s’expliquer grâce à son disciple Anastase, ancien notaire de l’aïeule de Constant II,
peut-être l’épouse de Nicétas, cousin d’Héraclius, dont le clan est issu de l’Afrique byzantine.
Maxime n’était donc très probablement pas constantinopolitain, mais bien palestinien» (p. 43)].

Go back to the Confessor Himself?, SE 42 (2003) 281-286.
[Summary: «In this contribution two points are established: 1. It is highly probable that
Maximus the Confessor (ca 580 – 662) himself is to be held responsible for the combination of
his Ambigua ad Thomam (dated to ca 634) and his Ambigua ad Iohannem (dated to 628/630)
into one large corpus. At this occasion the accepted chronological order of both works was
reversed. 2. This notwithstanding, it is clear that both sets of ambigua were originally
conceived as separated works. For scholarly purposes, therefore, it would seem appropriate to
distinguish between both works and consequently introduce two separate numerations
(Amb.Thom. I to V and Amb.Io. I to LXVI). The dedicatory letters to Thomas and John
respectively could then be referred to as prologue» (p. 286)].
