Da Epimenide a Teodoro di Mopsuestia, attraverso Calli¬maco, San Paolo e Giuliano

Augusto Guida


An examination of the citation by St. Paul (Epist. to Titus1.12)of a famous hexameter attributed to Epimenides, while tracing its polemical use by Pagans and Christians and discussing modern interpretations, highlights the sarcastic employment of the verse (against Paul) by the emperor Julian in his work Contra Galilaeosand the reaction of the Antiochean exegetes Theodore of Mopsuestia and John Chrysostom.
