Patrisics Roundup-January 18-24th, 2007

Hello, patristic-bloggers et al,

It has been another busy week in patristics land. Here are the offerigs for this week.

Mike Aquilina on The Way of the Fathers gives us a link to his conversation on the Fathers on Amplify!, commemorates the feast days of Sts. Sebastian and Agnes, quotes St. Thomas More on the Fathers.

William Weedon posts Patristic Quotes of the day featuring St. Maximos the Confessor, and St. Augustine .

Trevor at On the Temple Doorstep, tells us about a patristics game he tried out on his son (anyone know where we can get it!!!!).

John at kata Iwannhn quotes Peter Leithart on why the Fathers and the Reformers were so focused on the theological controversies of the day and we interest ourselves in the trivialities of politics.

Nick at Pass the Peace tells us about his encounter with Baptist Catholics, who retain a free-church theology, but pursue an interest in the Fathers. Sounds good to me.

Fred Sanders on Middlebrow offers us a review of the Council of Chalcedon and the doctrine of the Trinity.

Death Bredon at the Patristic Anglican reminds us about the decisions on images made at the 7th Ecumenical Council and follows up with his observations on St. Basil's Canon.

Jim Davila on PaleoJudaica lets us know about books on Syriac Fathers which we can download for free.

Rick Brannon on ricoblog posts his text and commentary on Didache 11

Danny Garland on Irish-Catholic and Dangerous posts St. John of Damascus on the Eucharistand St. John Chrysosthom on St. Paul's Conversion.

Chris Johnston at The Saint Ambrose reviews Richard Foster's Steams of Living Water; a book which helped inspired my own search of the treasures of patristics and the rest of our Christian tradition.

A little late, but Christian Bible studies features an interview with Christopher Hall on Habits of the Highly Effective Bible Readers which features a discussion about why Protestants have been turning more and more to the Fathers.

Phil Johnston on Pyromaniacs also discusses the relationship between the Fathers, the Reformers and sola scriptura.

R posts on Caught by the Light on a talk by Barbara Lymen about orthodoxy and diversity in the early Church. This has a decidedly Anglican pro-diversity lean, but is worth a look at.

Father Z on What does the Prayer Really Say features a patristic (and beyond) catena on the conversion of St. Paul.

Adrian Murdoch on Bread and Circuses continues his discussion about Synesius of Cyrene.

Please do let me know about any broken links or problems.
