Patristics Carnival XXVI

Patristics Carnival XXVI

Here it is! Slightly overdue, but done nonetheless. I made a special effort to get around the blogosphere and find things that hadn't come through my inbox. I haven't made a real effort to sort things either (a reflection of my mental processes no doubt).

Over at Sitz im Leben we have a review of Gerald Bray's We Believe in One God (Ancient Christian Doctrine Series)

Catholic Champion Blog considers St Cyril of Jerusalem on the Eucharist, Athanasius' appeal to Rome, and Porphyry vs. Jerome on the Eucharist

Deidre Richardson, blogging on the Men and Women in the Church blog, considers Patristic comments on Phoebe, 1 Tim 3:8-11, and 1 Tim 5:3-13

David Waltz at Articuli Fidei tackles Irenaeus view of Scripture and Tradition

The Church of Jesus Christ blog offers some thoughts on Eusebius of Nicomedia's letter to Paulinus of Tyre, and the Letter of Alexander of Alexandria to all bishops.

Christian Cadre defends the reliance of 1 Clement on 1 Corinthians

Scriptorium Daily gives a heads-up on the two new IVP series Ancient Christian Doctrine and Ancient Christian Texts

Chad Brooks offers up a book review of God Knows There's Need: Christian Response to Poverty by Susan Holman

Triablogue considers Allen Brent's arguments regarding the authenticity of the letters of Ignatius and Polycarp

Doug Chaplin at clayboy considers impassibility of God

The irrepressible Roger Pearse continues to offer a banquet: Euthymius Zigabenus and the Pericope Adulterae (and its Patristic attestation), the fate of Judas, a bio of Latinus Latinius (1513-1593) A patristic scholar almost vanished to history, and many, many more.

Josh McManaway at Son of the Fathers reflects on The hermeneutical practices of the Ante-Nicene Fathers and their implication for Christology

Mike Aquilina of The Way of the Fathers contemplates Thomas Robinson's new book, Ignatius of Antioch and the Parting of the Ways: Early Jewish-Christian Relations, as well as a number of book-notices.

Dave Armstrong at Biblical Evidence for Catholicism, speaks on Augustine's acceptance of seven sacraments, Biblical evidence for the Patristic Analogy of Mary and the Ark.

James Pate of James' Thoughts and Musings compares Chrysostom to Jimmy Swaggart, as well as offering thoughts his relation to contemporary NT Scholarship, Athanasius and Calvin on Nocturnal emissions, Lactantius as a proto-Pelagian>, and whether Tertullian is (Semi-)Arian?

Edit, Not to be forgotten (though how I overlooked escapes my own self-reflection), Nick Norelli gives a review of Healing in the Early Church, as well as points us to the availability of Craig Blaising's thesis on Athanasius of Alexandria.

If I've made any dreadful omissions, please let me know and I will pop them up pronto. I believe Carnival XXVII will be back at hyperekperissou.

Phil: I posted a book review of Andrew Daunton-Fear's Healing in the Early Church: The Church’s Ministry of Healing and Exorcism from the First to the Fifth Century as well as news of the availability of Craig Blaising's 1987 dissertation "Athanasius of Alexandria: Studies in the Theological Contents and Structure of the Contra Arianos, with Special Reference to Method."
