Even though the semester isn’t officially over, I’m already thinking about my summer class: Readings in Fourth Century Trinitarian Theology. The goal of the class is to summarize the key players, events, and ideas of the “Arian controversy” including some discussion of the precursors (i.e., Origen) to the theological dispute. Here are the books
- The Search of the Christian Doctrine of God by R. P. C. Hanson (875pp +)
- Gregory of Nazianzus on the Trinity and the Knowledge of God by Christopher A. Beeley (323pp +)
- Early Arianism–A View of Salvation by Robert C. Gregg and Dennis E. Groh (194pp +)
I’m also excited about some of recent birthday gifts.
- Custom embosser to clearly mark my books as mine. 🙂
- Plato: Cratylus, Parmenides, Greater Hippias, Lesser Hippias (Loeb Classical Library)
- Neoplatonism by Pauliina Remes (207pp +; edited by my wife with a “Jesus” sticker over the naked Hypatia :))
- The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky (tr. by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky; (776pp +)
When am I going to find time to practice French and study for the GRE?!
