Item Description...
Overview
A comprehensive historical surveyof patristic exegesis. Simonetti examines the changing understanding of hte Word of God in the early Church, and describes the individual authors and 'schools' who were active in this development. First there is a study of the role of Scripture in the infant Church. Simonetti describes the use of Scripture in orthodox circles, drawing comparisons from the Gnostic world. There follows an examination of Eastern exegesis in the 4th and 5th centuries )Eusebius, the Antiochian School, the Cappadocians, and later developments in Alexandria), and an examination of Western exegesis in the same period (including detailed discussions of Jerome and Augustine). Simonetti concludes with a study of developments in the Eastern and Western Church in the later 5th and 6th centuries. A final section provides a theological perspective through a study of the theological interpretation of Scripture in the patristic era.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good introduction for Exegetic  Mar 21, 2002
Professor Manlio Simonetti, as one of great theologians in our age, tries to give a distinction, first of all, some problematic terminologies(e.g. allegoria & allegorein, typology, tropology & Allegoria, etc.) which have caused so many theological problems and prejudices to theologians, especially, to protestant world's.And explains us the specific usages of exegetical methods by the Patristic exegesis on the Holy Bible under the prism of historical experience of the Church.It is not a complete research for the exegetic, however, readers can find a profound and penetrating academic theological approach of the author to the subject.
