Patristics Roundup-January 11-18, 2007

Here is the new roundup. Technical difficulties slowed me down this week, but the volume of patristic posts seems to be less this week.

Here we go (yea, ha!)

Mike Aquilina at The Way of the Fathers tells us to be of good cheer on the occasion of the feast day of St. Hilary of Poitiers (one of the leading, if unsung, Fathers of the West), traces the papyrus trail of the Fathers on abortion., introduces us to St. Antony's tomb with a view, hooks us up with an interview he did about St. Antony

Danny Garland at Irish-Catholic and Dangerous continues his quoting ways by giving us what the doctor, Doctor Augustine of Hippo, ordered;

William Weedon on Weedon's Blog continues his Patristic Quotes with St. Maximos, St. Hippolytus, St. Jerome and St. Maximos again.

Chris at Exploring the Mystery starts a new series on the Apostles' Creed with a historical overview;

Yet, more praise for Mike Aquilina's book, The Fathers of the Church by Peter Rival on Utter Mutterings . frival continues his praise

Brandon on Siris continues to consider the development of doctrine with special reference to Nestorianism and Apollinarianism.

Darrell Pursiful on Dr. Platypus weighs in on the question of Protestants and the Fathers. All with a kind reference to yours truly!

Ben Smith on Thoughts on Antiquity continues his series on the canon with the conclusion of his thoughts on the Eusebian canon

handmaidleah on Christ Is In Our Midst posts the Nicene Creed, complete with Biblical references.

H West at Rural Suburbia contrasts Patristic precision about language with our own more lacksidaisical approach.

Father Nelson at Theology of the Body features St. Augustine on the Confession of St. Peter.

Adriam Murdoch at Bread and circuses introduces us to the Platonic philosopher and bishop. Synesius of Cyrene.

Father Alvin Kimel at Pontifications offers us excerpts from an Augustinian sermon on growing in justice.

Ben Smith on Thoughts on Antiquity posts his second part of the Eusebian canon. I haven't read it yet, but it looks good...like all the rest of the series.

I hope you enjoyed the offerings!

Peace,
Phil
