Ilaria Ramelli

Terminology for eternity is often at the core of how these issues were debated, and helps to identify which writers inclined to one or the other view of the matter. She has many publications and her favorite area of investigation is the relationship between Patristic philosophy and classical thought. In ancient philosophy she chiefly studies the Stoic and Platonic traditions. Convert currency. Add to Basket. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. It traces these terms from their earliest occurrence in Pre-Socratic philosophy and Plato and through their interaction with Jewish thought and down into the patristic fathers, where they play a crucial role in debates over eternal punishment vs.

However, since the review was so brief and somewhat perfunctory, it inevitably omitted mention of many of the themes and conclusions that we reached in our book, Terms for Eternity, and so, to help orient the reader of BMCR to its contents, we thought of providing the following summary and observations.

    Equally important, this same distinction holds for many Christian authors, as we show in detail. While it is true that our conclusion is brief, we provide individual conclusions and comments not only in the general conclusion to the book but also at the end of each section and author; the reader will, we trust, find these useful.

    At the same time, it obviated the need to repeat these critical remarks at the end of the book. The organization of the material is far from being simply chronological; in our systematic investigation we treat each of the philosophical schools in turn, pointing out, for example, the exceptional use of the terms for eternity in the Platonic tradition, and in the Bible LXX and comparison with Hebrew background, plus the Greek New Testament , and then the reception of both biblical and philosophical language and concepts in Philo and the Patristic authors -- most of whom, as we point out, maintain the terminological distinction found in the Bible, and most rigorously those who supported the doctrine of apokatastasis.

    This is a remarkable distribution, and we explained why it might be so. We also illustrate how all this forms the linguistic background to the Fathers.

    We did not make this study into an argument concerning universal salvation, as the reviewer would have liked, for a reason that we indicate in the introduction and the conclusion, for we wished to concentrate on the linguistic evidence independently of doctrinal evidence though of course we show where the linguistic evidence supports certain doctrinal conclusions.

    To do otherwise might have convicted us of circular reasoning.

    One of us Ilaria Ramelli is now preparing a fullscale study on apokatastasis, in which the thesis of the destruction of the wicked is also examined, along with the reasons that led Origen and his followers to reject it; but to do so in the present monograph would have rendered it tendentious, whereas we wished rather to provide a basis for many kinds of scholarly research. We hope that these supplementary remarks will be helpful to the reader, even as we express our gratitude once again for the reviewer's kind assessment of our work.

    We very much hope that our research will prove useful to scholars in ancient philosophy, Patristics, ancient Greek, and classical and Christian thought generally. I would have missed the significance of the book if relying solely on the review. As regards what was "pointed out and demonstrated" in the book, the reviewer asks the badly-formed question,"Does this provide evidence for the apocatastatic view that punishment viewed as corrective, not retributive will come to an end, and those punished will also pass into eternal life? For evidence pertaining to the theological question, one might prefer not general observations of usage, however invariant, but texts in which the terms are use asymmetrically, e.
