Re: Interchange of Future and Aorist Participle?

In Martyrdom of Peter I have found the following passage where a future participle is present in the text (Accordance module, which is from the Bonnet Acta Apostolorum Apocrypha, 3 vols, Leipzig: 1891-1903) serving what appears to be a the normal function of an aorist participle: MPeter 3.2 Ὁ δὲ Πέ...

Re: Orations of St Athanasius Against the Arians

Some inflection of φρονεῖν with ὀρθῶς is found frequently and as early as Aeschylus. Cyril of Alexandria is particularly fond of it. Aeschylus Trag., Prometheus Bound 999-1000 τόλμησον, ὦ μάταιε, τόλμησόν ποτε πρὸς τὰς παρούσας πημονὰς ὀρθῶς φρονεῖν. HERMES You self-willed fool, for once you should ...

After reading Basil and Gregory Nyssa Against Eunomius in English, I am back to Against the Arians . Orations of St Athanasius Against the Arians § 8.3a Πῶς γὰρ ἂν ἀληθεύσῃ περὶ τοῦ Πατρὸς ὁ τὸν Υἱὸν ἀρνούμενος, τὸν ἀποκαλύπτοντα περὶ αὐτοῦ; ἢ πῶς περὶ τοῦ Πνεύματος ὀρθὰ φρονήσει , δυσφημῶν εἰς τὸν ...

Re: Richard Rhodes on Definiteness

Can anyone tell me how the mountain in Matt 5:1 is identifiable? Matt 5:1 ¶ Ἰδὼν δὲ τοὺς ὄχλους ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὄρος , καὶ καθίσαντος αὐτοῦ προσῆλθαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ. The article can be used of things that are generally known or implied from context. Also, an author may choose to present τὸ ὄρος...

Basil, Adversus Eunomium 3.1

This morning I was finishing up reading of the first English translation of Basil, Adversus Eunomium [1] when I paused to notice Basil agreeing with Eunomius: The Son is second to the Father in rank [τάξει] because he is from him. He is second to the Father in dignity [άξιώματι] because the Father i...
