Read an Excerpt


CHAPTER II INTERPRETATION OF THE TEXT 1. In The Greek Fathers Certainly the most important period in the exegetical history of Heb. xi, 1 is the Greek Patristic. For the Greek interpretation is not only the first exegesis of our verse, but it is also the interpretation of writers whose mother tongue was the icoivrj StaXe/ero? of the Epistle to the Hebrews. Hence, besides its importance for the history of the interpretation, the Greek Patristic understanding of vTrocrratm, the pivotal term of the verse, will be constantly noted because it has an historico-literary value of the greatest moment.

G., 2, 1169 A. 2 Cf. R. Hirzel, CWia, Philologus, Band 72 (1913), 43, where he says that ciSos is not confined to the limits of Platonic metaphysics, " mag man darun- ter die das Wesen eines Dinges scharf umschreibende Form oder das zurKomposition eines Ganzen dienende Element verstehen."
