Description

Christianity and Greek Paideia

Revd Dr Richard Price
Professor Emeritus of the History of Christianity
Heythrop College, University of London

Did Jewish Christianity and Greek culture have much in common? Or was Christianity the product of a distinctively Jewish culture, which, on entering the Greco-Roman world, had to be translated into the concepts of Greek paideia? If so, does it need to be ‘de-hellenized’ in order to speak to our own postclassical world? This debate has died down in the context of contemporary eclecticism, which views the Hellenic inheritance as something to be plundered, or ignored, at will. Is the study of ancient Greek culture an aid, a distraction, or a hindrance in the quest for a Christianity at once faithful to its biblical roots and relevant in today’s world?
