Heidegger's Bible Handbook: Pentateuch: Patristic Interpreters


Bede

HOLY FATHERS: Augustine,[1] Bede,[2] Cyril,[3] Isidore,[4] Theodoret,[5] Procopius of Gaza.[6]

[1] Questionum in Heptateuchum libri VII.


[2] Capitula lectionum in Pentateucum Mosi, Iosue, Iudicu (not extant). Bede (c. 672-735), known as the Venerable Bede, was an English monk whose fame rests largely on his ecclesiastical history of England (c. 731). He wrote many other works, including commentaries, not only on the Heptateuch, but also on Kings, Esdras, Tobias, the Gospels, Acts, and the Catholic Epistles. His interpretive work is characterized by his commitment to the tradition of the Fathers, and by his use of the allegorical method of interpretation.


[3] Adoration in Spirit and Truth, and Elegant Comments.


[4] In Vetum Testamentum.


[5] Questions on the Octateuch. Theodoret (393-457) was bishop of Cyrus, and a significant participant in the Christological controversies of his age. He was an advocate of Antiochian dyophysitism, or moderate Nestorianism, although he condemned the Nestorian affirmation of two Sons in Christ, and the Nestorian denial that Mary was Theotokos, that is, the Mother of God. His orthodoxy was cleared at the Council of Chalcedon (451). With respect to exegetical method, Theodoret came up under the tutelage of Theodore of Mopsuestia and John Chrysostom. He commented on most of the books of the Bible; his comments on the Scripture are sober, and clear in expression.


[6] Eclogarum epitome.
