Antioch in the Aftermath of Julian
The conclusion imagines the impact of Julian’s rhetoric on the Antiochene landscape, especially as found in the writings of John Chrysostom some twenty years later. Chrysostom’s anti-Jewish rhetoric is typically seen as aimed at Christian Judaizers. This thesis is challenged and repostulated here. Chrysostom is forced to deal with a real Jewish danger to Christians unleashed by Julian years earlier. He does so by attempting to render Jewish laws, institutions, and practices inert and illegitimate. The particular ugly anti-Jewish language in Against the Judaizers can be explained by his perception of Jews as a danger to Christian orthodoxy.
