Theodoret on the Antiochene Clerical Heritage

(p.57) 3 Roots of a Network
Theodoret's People

Adam M. Schor

University of California Press

This chapter explores the origins of the Antiochene network by analyzing the heritage that Theodoret of Cyrrhus depicted in works of history. It traces Theodoret's account of his heroic predecessors and compares it to other historical sources. The analysis reveals that Theodoret's writings celebrate his Nicene clerical forebears and argues that his narrative must be placed in historiographical context. It explains that his depictions made sense of developments in Antiochene doctrine and in Syrian clerical-ascetic relations.

Keywords:   Antiochene network, Theodoret of Cyrrhus, history, heroic predecessors, historical sources, Nicene clerics, Antiochene doctrine, clerical-ascetic relations
