Il Comitato costituitosi in Roma per tributar le dovute onoranze a san Giovanni Crisostomo in occasione del XV centenario dalla sua morte, tra i vari modi con i quali intese render il dovuto onore alla memoria del grande Padre della Chiesa e del valentissimo oratore, credette assai opportuno quello d’ invitare alcuni tra i più competenti studiosi di discipline storiche o liturgiche a portare il loro contributo nell’ illustrazione della vita, delle opere e in genere di quanto da presso o da lungi potesse riferirsi al santo.
Il presente volume è appunto la raccolta di questi studi diretti ad illustrar qualche tratto poco noto o non affatto conosciuto della vita e delle opere del Crisostomo, a stabilir la fortuna delle sue opere nelle varie letterature , l’estensione e l’ oggetto del suo culto.
Esso si presenta naturalmente diviso in tre parti, o fascicoli, di cui la prima si riferisce alla sua figura morale e letteraria ; la seconda alla liturgia che va sotto il suo nome e alle sue diramazioni nelle varie nazionalità dell’ Oriente ; la terza finalmente tratta del culto del santo e cioè delle sue reliquie, dell’eortologia, dell’ innografia, e dell’ iconografia crisostomiane.
In tal guisa il Comitato confida di aver tributato a san Giovanni Crisostomo un duraturo omaggio e insieme di aver offerto ai dotti e agli studiosi in genere di discipline storiche e liturgiche un utile strumento di lavoro, un repertorio ampio ed originale dove si trovino illustrati quei punti specialmente di storia o di critica su cui non si è fatta ancora universalmente la luce della scienza storica.

Commentary. The early Church Fathers, most of whom were fanatics with an axe to grind…

El día de ayer comencé la lectura de un librito cuyo título es por demás atractivo: The Gnostics. The first Christian heretics.

Escrito por Sean Matin, este libro ofrece una visión más o menos bien documentada sobre el gnosticismo, sin preocuparse en demasía por los aspectos más áridos de su tema, y en cambio, sí resaltando los elementos más sórdidos, y que debieran tratarse con un mínimo de cuidado.

Apenas en las primeras páginas, el polemista enconado hace su aparición, en un párrafo por demás cuestionable:

Despite the writings of the early Church Fathers, most of whom were fanatics with an axe to grind, the term ‘Gnostic’ was not universally used by Gnostic teachers such as Valentinus and Marcion, who usually simply referred to themselves as Christians, nor by Church apologists such as Tertullian and Irenaeus, who often called them simply ‘heretics’. The problem is further compounded by the fact that the Gnostics themselves were comprised of diverse groups which did not have a uniform set of beliefs; indeed, diversity is one of the hallmarks of Gnosticism. Furthermore, not all Gnostics were Christian – some were Jews, some Pagan.
Modern scholarship is divided over what is actually meant by the term ‘Gnosticism’. In 1966, a colloquium of scholars met at Messina in Italy to establish exactly what is meant by Gnosticism and gnosis. They concluded that Gnosticism refers to the religious systems developed in the early centuries of the Common Era, while gnosis is the attaining of knowledge. One could therefore have gnosis, but not be a Gnostic. (For the present book, we will try to adhere to the Messina definitions.) The political theorist Eric Voegelin further muddied the waters when he attempted to define Gnosticism as being derived from a general feeling of alienation and disconnectedness with society. As a result, he detected Gnosticism in Marxism, Communism and Nazism, all of which, according to Voegelin, were movements which wanted to bring about apocalypse (he dubbed it ‘immanentising the eschaton’).
Gnostic tendencies have since been spotted in a wide variety of writers, thinkers, political and spiritual movements, and also across the spectrum of popular culture, from Hollywood movies to computer games and comics. This bewilderingly diverse group includes the likes of not only Jung, but also William Blake, Goethe, Herman Melville, Albert Camus, Hegel, Nietzsche, WB Yeats, Franz Kafka, Existentialists, all manner of Theosophists, Jack Kerouac, Philip K Dick, computer games such as the Xenosaga series, comics such as Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and Alan Moore’s Promethea and movies such as The Truman Show and the Matrix trilogy.

Martin, The Gnostics. The first Christian Heretics, pp. 15-17.  2006.

Dejando de lado ese tono sensacionalista, ávido de publicidad y reconocimiento, hay un punto a favor que este libro tiene de manera indudable: obliga al lector a repensar por completo su visión de la Iglesia, y en cuanto tal, ofrece la posibilidad de indicar un sendero de estudio e investigación por demás válido, que quienquiera que esté interesado en el tema podrá sortear, tomando sus propios riesgos y obteniendo también sus propias conclusiones.

La visión panorámica -si bien afectada por ese afán de polémica- de la Historia de la Iglesia de los primeros tiempos, resalta de una manera práctica y también continua los altibajos que adolece dicho periodo histórico. Y sin dudar en llamar a Pablo ‘verdadero fundador del cristianismo’ o al mismo Pablo ‘el primer hereje cristiano’, el autor también repasa los testimonios más importantes sobre el tema, en este libro de divulgación que involuntariamente resulta estar muy bien formado, aunque la argumentación general no se atreve a sacar las últimas conclusiones de semejantes tramas.

Un libro por demás interesante, que puede leerse como una curiosidad, y de la que, escudriñando atentamente, puede obtenerse y sin duda alguna, un gran provecho.

Une figure ronde et juvenile, de grands yeux avec des sourcils bien arques, un nez droit et une petite bouche. Sur la tete, une tiare en etoffe, simple bonnet pointu que terminent, en haut, une houppe, en bas, un cercle de metal. Sur le buste, l’insigne du haut sacerdoce, le pallium, bande de laine blanche semee de croix rouges. C’est ainsi que le fragment de mosai’que conserve dans la villa du due Torlonia, a Poli, et la peinture de l’eglise souterraine du Sacro Speco, a Subiaco, representent lepape Innocent III. L’histoire ajoute qu’il avail la taille petite, la physionomie agreable, la parole facile et la voix tellement sonore et bien timbree que tout le monde l’entendait et le comprenait même quand il parlait a voix basse.

Quand on suit la route de Rome a Naples, l’ancienne voie Latine, on debouche, vers le soixantieme kilometre, dans la vallee de la riviere Sacco. En haut des premiers sommets qui l’encadrent, a cinq ou six cents metres, apparaissent, perchees sur l’assise eternelle de leurs murs cyclopeens, Segni, Anagni, Ferentino, Palestrina, les vieilles villes Herniques. Leurs eglises ont pour base des substructions de temples pai’ens. Saint-Pierre de Segni, Sainte-Marie d’Anagni, massives comme des forteresses, dominent encore les maisons de pierre et les remparts de leur cite.

D’est la qu’etait le patrimoine d’Innocent III. Les chatelains de Segni, une lignee d’origine lombarde, possedaient, depuis le dixieme siecle, le comte de la Campagne romaine. Mais ce n’est qu’apres Innocent III que, pourvus d’importantes proprietes a Rome et aux environs, et illustres par leur grand pape, ils s’appelerent comtes tout court, en italien conti. Telle fut l’origine de la puissante maison romaine des Conti, rivale des Orsini, des Colonna, des Savelli. Rien qu’au treizieme siecle, elle devait fournir plusieurs papes au monde chretien.
