Influence of Greek Ideas and Usages upon the Christian Church
greek, philosopher, christian
Data Set Description Summary
Edwin Hatch (1835–1889) gave 8 lectures in 1888 that were published after his death. "It is impossible for any one, whether he be a student of history or no, to fail to notice a difference of both form and content between the Sermon on the Mount and the Nicene Creed. … The one belongs to a world of Syrian peasants, the other to a world of Greek philosophers. The contrast is patent. … The presumption is that [the change] was the result of Greek influence. It will appear from the Lectures that this presumption is true. Their general subject is, consequently, The Influence of Greece upon Christianity."
