Paradoxical Theology from Origen to Gregory Nazianzen: Epistemology, Linguistics, and the Grammar of Theological Argumentation
23 January, 20 21 February & 20 March 2017- In the fourth century the very term paradoxical theology sounded as an idle fancy. Therefore, Christian authors spared no effort to strengthen and clarify this doctrine by means of engaging the contemporary scientific apparatus of disciplines such as linguistics, logic (the Alexandrian and Pergamon schools of grammar), philosophy, and science (Hellenic medicine and theory of knowledge). The focus of the proposed course concerns the strategy of the patristic authors and its benefits for present-day studies.
