THE SPIRITUAL WORLD OF ISAAC THE SYRIAN

Author: HIEROMONK HILARION ALFAYEV #: 10305
Isaac the Syrian, also called Isaac of Nineveh, lived and wrote during ‘the golden age of syriac christian literature’ in the seventh century. Cut off by language and politics from the Churches of the Roman Empire and branded ‘Nestorian’, the Church of the East produced in isolation a rich theological literature which only now becoming known to outsiders. Yet over the centuries and in all parts of Christendom, Isaac's works have been read and recommended as unquestionably orthodox.

WOMEN IN THE EARLY CHURCH

Author: ELIZABETH A. CLARK #: 10306
The most fitting word with which to describe the Church Fathers` attitude toward women is ambivalence. Women were God`s creation, his good gift to men and the curse of the world. They were weak in both mind and character and displayed dauntless courage, undertook prodigious feats of scholarship. Vain, deceitful, brimming with lust they led men to Christ, fled sexual encounter, wavered not at the executioner`s threats, adorned themselves with sackcloth and ashes. Leaving the examination of the Fathers psyches to other specialists, this volume documents from an historical perspecitve the ways in which the Fathers praised and blamed, honored and disparaged the female sex.

EARLY CHRISTIAN CREEDS

Author: J.N.D. KELLY #: 10313
This is a comprehensive study of the rise, development and use of credal formularies in the creative centuries of the Church`s history. Opens with an examination of credal elements in the New Testament and continues with an enquiry into the relation of creeds to the rite of baptism. The chapters that follow are devoted to a study of the evidence for "the rule of faith" in the second century; a long discussion of the Old Roman Creed; and a consideration of the creeds of the Eastern Church and their relation to Western creeds and to those propounded by the fourth-century councils. Particular attention is given to the Council of Nicaea and the Nicene Creed. In addition, there is a lengthy and largely original reconstruction of the expansion of the Roman Creed and its acceptance thoughout Europe as the present Apostles` Creed. Two valuable features of the book are the emphasis it lays on the liturgical setting of ancient creeds, and the attempt it makes to elucidate their theology as it was understood by those who framed them.
