9782503550503: Diodore the Theologian: Pronoia in his commentary of Psalms 1-50 (Studia Traditionis Theologiae)

This study examines the role of theology in the biblical commentary of a fourth-century pastor and teacher. The notion that theology and scripture are inextricably connected in early Christian thinking has become a scholarly commonplace in contemporary patristic scholarship. But the nature of the connection has been less than clear, particularly with respect to the commentary on Psalms 1-50 (ca. 372) composed by Diodore of Tarsus (d. ca. 394). Despite the fact that Diodore identifies pronoia (providence) as the central doctrinal theme of the Psalms in his Prologue to the Commentary, scholars have largely overlooked Diodores engagement with pronoia in his exegesis of the Psalms. This study argues that a specific account of pronoia supplies Diodores primary theological framework for interpreting the Psalms by generating the questions he asks of the text and shaping his view of other themes in the Psalms. For Diodore, pronoia is more than a theme he identifies in the Psalms. Rather, the nature of God's pronoia is for Diodore the main doctrinal question posed by the Psalter, to which his exegesis of the Psalms provides the answer. That answer, then, is a view of pronoia which can be described as cooperative, reciprocal, and immanent.

Retail price: EUR 70,00 A fresh proposal for the role of theology in Diodore's exegesis of Psalms 1-50. "[T]his work, then, makes a general contribution [to the study of the patristic period], as well as a specific one to the study of Diodore. It marks a new stage in efforts to understand this church father and provides a solid basis for further investigation." (from the Foreword by Rowan A. Greer, Prof. Emeritus, Yale Divinity School) This study examines the role of theology in the biblical commentary of a fourth-century pastor and teacher. The notion that theology and scripture are inextricably connected in early Christian thinking has become a scholarly commonplace in contemporary patristic scholarship. But the nature of the connection has been less than clear, particularly with respect to the commentary on Psalms 1-50 (ca. 372) composed by Diodore of Tarsus (d. ca. 394). Despite the fact that Diodore identifies ??????? (providence) as the central doctrinal theme of the Psalms in his Prologue to the Commentary, scholars have largely overlooked Diodore's engagement with ??????? in his exegesis of the Psalms. This study argues that a specific account of ??????? supplies Diodore's primary theological framework for interpreting the Psalms by generating the questions he asks of the text and shaping his view of other themes in the Psalms. For Diodore, ??????? is more than a theme he identifies in the Psalms. Rather, the nature of God's ??????? is for Diodore the main doctrinal question posed by the Psalter, to which his exegesis of the Psalms provides the answer. The answer, Wayman contends, is a view of ??????? which he describes as cooperative, reciprocal, and immanent. Benjamin D. Wayman is assistant professor of religion at Greenville College.
