Description

The church fathers read the Old Testament in ways that can look strange to modern eyes. In their sermons, they use biblical texts in ways that would not normally occur to us. What accounts for the differences between ancient and modern reader? What can we learn from them? How might they shape our own interpretation and use of the Old Testament? In this plenary, we will compare our own interpretive practices with the practices of select church fathers in order to explore some answers to these questions.
