Patristic Scriptural Exegesis

Patristic Scriptural Exegesis will offer the methods and tendencies of a pre-modern hermeneutic of Scripture. The Church Fathers and Mothers read Scripture with certain assumptions, likely different than contemporary assumptions and methodologies. How did they read Scripture? Can we develop something of a Patristic lectio divina (Sacred reading) and apply it today as a transformative Christian practice? What might the difficulties be of this endeavor? These questions and more will be explored in this course.
