Is there an Antiochene reading of Isaiah?
|Authors:||Fernández Marcos, Natalio|
|Abstract:||Much has been written on Antioch, the city founded by Seleucus on the river Orontes, second only to
Alexandria in importance for the Jewish community in the Hellenistic and Roman period, the first place where
the followers of Jesus were called 'Christians' (Acts 11:26).1 The glory of this city, first as a focus of Hellenism
and later as a pole of expansion of early Christianity is paramount. However, in the framework of the history of
the Biblical text, when asking for the Antiochene or Lucianic reading, we do not refer only to the city but to the
district of the dioivkhsi" with an ecclesiastical jurisdiction which includes the whole school of the
Antiochene Fathers: Diodore and Eustathius, Theodor of Mopsuestia, Theodoret of Cyrrhus and John
It is my purpose in this contribution to focus on the reading of Isaiah in this geographical area which produced some of the most brilliant and original commentators and exegetes of the Septuagint. After some remarks on the Scripture read by the Antiochene Fathers I will concentrate on the analysis of the Antiochene text commonly used in the public reading of the Bible to conclude with the kind of exegesis and hermeneutics carried out by the authors living in this district, the subject of some relevant monographs written over the last decades.
