Zeus Shall Have No Dominion: Plundering Egyptians in Christian Late Antiquity

 "Zeus Shall Have No Dominion: Literary ‘Transformationalism’ and the Plundering of the Egyptians in Christian Late Antiquity.”  In this lecture, Dr. Hutchinson examines the writings of Jerome and Paulinus of Nola to show how they understood the right use of pagan literature in Christian philosophy and theology.  He demonstrates that despite occasional statements that suggest a very negative appraisal of such "transformationalism," their practice proves an enthusiastic willingness to adapt the pagan classics to Christian ends.

A talk from: The Convivium Calvinisticum is an annual event sponsored by the Davenant Trust. The Convivium brings together a small group of scholars, pastors, and students for fellowship and discussion each June. Our goal is to foster a network of men and women dedicated to historically-informed, irenic engagement with the challenges facing contemporary Protestantism and committed to civic engagement and renewal. The theme of the 2014 Convivium was "Creation, Redemption, and Neo-Calvinism," wrestling with the recurring dualities between Christ and culture, church and state, spiritual and temporal, sacred and secular, that have structured much of Christian and particularly Reformed theology. The full proceedings of the conference (of which only a sampling are made available here) will be published in a forthcoming volume, For the Healing of the Nations: Creation, Redemption, and Neo-Calvinism.

Eric Hutchinson Dr. Eric Htchinson is Assistant Professor of Classics at Hillsdale College.
