Abstract

Traces of Eastern thought are a constant presence throughout Latin biblical exegesis. At times however these traces were rather dissenting from the Western theological background. This session will present different particular situations when dissonant Greek sources were used by Latin authors in biblical interpretation: Evagrius by Cassian on Lord’s Prayer (Cristina Ciubotaru), Eriugena’s position on filioque (Dan Batovici) and Augustine’s relation to Origen (Alexandra Parvan).
