An Ancient Commentary on the Book of Revelation: A Critical by Professor P. Tzamalikos

By Professor P. Tzamalikos

It is a new serious version, with translation and statement, of the Scholia in Apocalypsin, that have been falsely attributed to Origen a century in the past. They contain huge sections from Didymus the Blind's misplaced statement at the Apocalypse (fourth century) and accordingly counter the present trust that Oecumenius' statement (sixth century) was once the main historic. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their writer was once actually Cassian the Sabaite, an erudite monk and abbot on the monastery of Sabas, the nice Laura, in Palestine. He was once diversified from the alleged Latin writer John Cassian, positioned a century or so earlier than the genuine Cassian. The Scholia attest to the strain among the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the 6th century and sure monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic rules and on alleged 'heretics'. They express that, in the course of that interval, Hellenism was once a lively strength inspiring not just pagan intellectuals, but in addition influential Christian quarters.

In Persecution in 1 Peter, Travis B. Williams bargains a finished and distinct socio-historical research into the character of soreness in 1 Peter. whereas interpreters often painting the clash state of affairs addressed by means of the epistle as ''unofficial'' persecution inclusive of discrimination and verbal abuse, Williams demonstrates the inadequacy of this contemporary consensus by way of situating the letter opposed to the backdrop of clash administration in first-century CE Asia Minor.

Sample text

Nicetas of Paphlagonia (or Nicetas David or Nicetas the philosopher), Orationes, Oration 2. Nicetas was a Christian scholar and grammarian of ninth–tenth century. He was among the so-called zealots, the followers of Patriarch Ignatius. He wrote a Life of Ignatius, in an apologetic mode and in tendency hostile to Photius. He also wrote laudatory orations, hymns, and poems. The text has it ‘Carpus (Κα´ρπο ) bishop of Smyrna’, which is evidently a mistake. Carpus was one among the seventy apostles who followed Paul and became the bishop of Veroia in Macedonia (or, Veroe in Thrace).
