Chapter Summary

This is the part three of the book, which explores the noetic dimension of paschal Christology and its Hellenistic background. As scholars have noticed, a large number of early Christians preferred to read biblical theophanies in a literal way, therefore in an anthropomorphic manner. The everyday faith of the simpliciores and of liturgical texts had a strong connection with this hermeneutical perspective. It is also very plausible that the noetic turn in Jewish and Christian theology represented a polemical attitude against this anthropomorphic trend.

Keywords: liturgical texts; paschal Christology
