Bibliotheca Pretiosa: Error 2048.

Dear Friends:

We’ve noticed an error displaying documents in the pages dynamically generated with the Scribd Api. This due to the usage of the now outdated API V. 1, which must be replaced with the API v. 2, to allow native management of all the HTML5 features.

Among this, we are working to update the lost items due to name changing, revisions updated, and other minor issues which disallow the access to some contents in several collections.

Please apologize us by any disturb. We will notify the updates about the solution of these issues.

The Administrative PLGO Board Team.

UPDATE from Nov. 18, 2015:

The problem has been fixed temporarily. The documents are being displayed as flash-based ones, and are totally manageable through the web page http://bibliothecapretiosa.plgo.org

We are working in a whole migration from flash-viewer to native HTML5 standard.

If you still experiencing any trouble, please contact us.

Montalembert. Les moines d’Occident depuis Saint Benoít jusqu’a Saint Bernard/The monks of the West, from St. Benedict to St. Bernard. 1878/1861.

A member of the French Academy from 9 January, 1851 Montalembert was both an orator and a historian. As early as 1835 he had planned to write a life of St. Bernard. He was led to publish in 1860, under the title “Les Moines d’Occident”, two volumes on the origin of monasticism; then followed three volumes on the monks in England; he died before he reached the period of St. Bernard. But he left among his papers, on the one hand, a manuscript entitled “Influence de l’ordre monastique sur la noblesse féodale et la société laïque jusqu’à la fin du XIe siàcle”, and on the other hand a work on Gregory VII and the conflict of investitures; and these two manuscripts, published in 1877 by his friend Foisset and his son-in-law the Vicomte de Meaux, made up the sixth and seventh volume of the “Moines d’Occident”.

Revue de l’Orient Latin. 1893-1902.

Due to some changes and adjustments in our collections, the past November 23, 2012, some documents were deleted in various collections, some of them being deleted completely.

Between these, the 9 volumes of the ‘Revue de l’Orient Latin’ disappear, letting empty such collection.

We have re-uploaded all 9 volumes, and now they are again on line, and open to public read.

In the next days we will work on the ‘Scriptorum Veterum Nova Collectio‘, damaged too in such date.

El año 2012 ha sido decisivo, y todo un reto a sortear por la comunidad PLGO. Hemos sufrido ataques, amenazas, como pocas veces antes se incrementó el spam, y todo ello ocasionó un fuerte deterioro tanto en los proyectos como en la vida misma de la comunidad PLGO en sus diferentes áreas.

Nos abruma principalmente la incertidumbre de sabernos en manos caprichosas, precisamente las de quienes nos proveen de hosting, quienes han dejado muy en claro su intención de ‘mantenernos en la mira’, y pendientes de cualquier ‘falta’ que contravenga sus intereses: el dinero.

Quieren, a como dé lugar, que paguemos más, que rentemos y solicitemos el uso de un servidor dedicado. Lo cual queda fuera de nuestras posibilidades, y no entra en nuestros planes ni siquiera como una opción a mediano o largo plazo. Por tanto, habremos de seguir trabajando con lo que tenemos a la mano, haciendo nuestra labor lo mejor que podemos, y sobre todo, sabiendo que cualquier empresa dejada en las manos de los hombres tarde que temprano llegará a su fin. Si algo bueno hay en todo esto que pueda ayudar a quienes requieren algún tipo de información, esperamos que sea un mérito, el mínimo entre todos, cuando el Padre nos llame a dar cuentas al final de nuestros días sobre este mundo.

Así, pues, tomamos este hecho quizá intrascendente, como un aliciente para seguir adelante, y no desfallecer aunque el horizonte no parezca despoblado de nubarrones y relámpagos y centellas.

Felicidades a todos y cada uno de los miembros que conforman la comunidad PLGO, y sobre todo, a los visitantes quienes hacen posible que proyectos como el de la biblioteca en línea a través de Scribd, sean mucho más que un mero conglomerado de e-books: un proyecto útil que sirve de la mejor manera posible a la comunidad en general.

Gumerlock. Mark 13:32 and Christ’s Supposed Ignorance: Four Patristic Solutions. 2007.

Trinity Journal 28 (2007):205-213
Mark 13:32 and Christ’s Supposed Ignorance:
Four Patristic Solutions

THE PROBLEM OF CHRIST’S SUPPOSED IGNORANCE

Referring to the time of His Second Coming, Jesus is recorded as saying, “But of
that day or hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father
alone” (Mark 13:32, NASB. The word alone is italicized because it was supplied by the
translator). The church fathers spilled much ink explaining this statement of the Lord,
most often because of its import regarding Christology.2 Since the passage allegedly
presents Christ as ignorant, the Arians of the early church, who denied that the Son was
consubstantial with the Father, used it as a proof-text for their belief in a less-than-divine
Son of God.3 On the other hand, those who held to Nicene orthodoxy and believed that
Jesus was fully God and possessed all the attributes of divinity, including omniscience,
responded to the Arians with Colossians 3:2, “In Him are all the treasures of wisdom and
knowledge.” The adherents of Nicene orthodoxy, besides asserting Christ’s omniscience,
also had to make sense out of Mark 13:32, which seemed to teach that Jesus was ignorant
of at least one detail concerning the future, i.e. the time of His return. To solve the
theological dilemma of the omniscient Son of God not knowing the time of His own
Second Coming, the church fathers proposed a variety of explanations. This article
presents and evaluates four of their solutions—the philological solution of Basil of
Caesarea, two “figures of speech” solutions offered by Augustine of Hippo and Gregory
of Tours respectively, and the anthropological solution of Athanasius of Alexandria.
