Proverbs 8 proved to key text in the debate between Athanasius and the Arians in the 4th century, particularly in terms of its Christological and Trinitarian implications. In our own era, the text has played less obvious a role in such theological discussions. Should it? If so, how? Presenters will provide varying perspectives on this topic, addressing matters of exegesis, the relation of Old and New Testaments, the hermeneutics of the lectionary, and pedagogy.
The Saturday morning session will offer presentations by several TST doctoral students on related topics, from the anti-Arian exegesis of Ephrem the Syrian to sophiological ontology.
