My conference: Scripture in Saint John Climacus

saint john climacus

A time to read and a time to embody:

John’s creative use of Scripture in The Ladder of Divine Ascent

I gave this paper at the Orthodox Theological Society in America Consultation and Annual Meeting, in Chicago, back in June 2008.

Pemptousia, an Orthodox online periodical sponsored by the Friends of Vatopaidi, have just published it in three installments:

  1. First Part:
    – INTRODUCTION
    – 1. SURVEY OF BIBLICAL ALLUSIONS AND QUOTATIONS
    – 2. MAIN CHARACTERISTICS IN JOHN’S USE OF SCRIPTURE
  2. Second Part:
    – 3. WHY DOES JOHN USE SCRIPTURE IN SUCH A CREATIVE WAY?
  3. Third Part:
    – CONCLUSION

HAVE YOU READ THE LADDER?
WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN IT?
