Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Here's an online source that covers many of the key issues, though it doesn't fully discuss the interesting constituent order. Perhaps Stephen could offer some comments on this. That is a really helpful paper in laying out the issues. I'm too flat out right now to get into the nitty-gritty, but her...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

But I would submit that this exercise in semantics is beside point of the middle, which is in fact to deprofile the agent. Is it really "besides the point"? Correct. And your analogy with human and beastly passives is gold, definitely worth stealing. I'm curious why certain possible semantic featur...

Re: 1 Cor 6:4

Personally I'm having a hard time seeing that it could be anything other than a question. It might be helpful to list which interpretations you'd like to consider in more detail (a good critical commentary like the ICC should do this). Punctuating Paul is one of the most challenging parts of underst...

Re: How to Identify a Permissive/Causative Middle Voice Verb?

Often when some people say "not a true a middle," what they mean is "not (directly) reflexive." But scholars of the middle have known for a long time that the reflexive is just one of several senses of the middle, and not the most frequent for that matter. So part of the problem is that people mean ...

Re: Books Similar to Quasten’s Patrology

Some translations are listed, but yes the focus is on the editions. Perhaps, The Encyclopedia of Early Christianity is what you're looking for. The reference section of its articles often have cites to modern translations.

Re: Books Similar to Quasten’s Patrology

For something more up to date, try Clavis Patruum Graecorum for Greek authors and Clavis Patruum Latinorum. These are more a list than a patrology, and I think it’s current to about the 1990s. There is one wrinkle, however: they’re written in neo-Latin.

Re: ἄρτι vs νῦν

What I've learned is that ἄρτι = "this moment" and νῦν = "now"; in other words a point vs. an interval. I don't know how accurate it is, but it seems like something that can be tested.

Re: Conjugation of φέρω: ἤνεγκαν, ἠνέχθη, etc?

The technical term is suppletion. English has it too, not just in the verb to be (is ~ was ~ been) but also in to go (go ~ went). Generally a product of the vagaries of history, suppletion is thought to have some cognitive / processing benefits. Relatedly, it is mainly found with very common words, ...

I don’t have much to add unfortunately. The geographical issues are beyond my expertise and this forum’s ambit. Sorry.
