Book Description

George Karamanolis shows that early Christian thinkers, following the example of classical philosophy, developed a highly sophisticated method of philosophical thinking by means of which they constructed some of the most fundamental doctrines of Christianity. The book examines the character of early Christian philosophy and goes on to place the development of this philosophy in its cultural and historical context. The core of the book deals thematically with the central philosophical concerns of early Christian thinkers and counters current scholarly opinion that posits that Christianity was unable to accommodate philosophical reasoning.



George Karamanolis is Assistant Professor of Philosophy in the Department of Philosophy of the University of Vienna. His work focuses on Ancient and Byzantine Philosophy.
