Christianity and Classical Culture 1992–1993

Jaroslav Pelikan

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Christianity and Classical Culture is an examination of the Christian encounter with Hellenism. It maps the importance of the Cappadocian system of natural theology as it developed in relation to classical culture, first into a natural theology as apologetics, and subsequently into the dogmatics of the Nicene orthodoxy. Insofar as this is the case, natural theology in classical culture underwent a metamorphosis in the hands of the Cappadocians, first becoming a natural theology as apologetics, and later, a natural theology as presupposition. The book broadly traces this metamorphosis from classical culture to apologetics to dogmatics in relation to the thought and writings of the four Cappadocians: Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa and Macrina, the sister of the latter two.
