Reading Paul in Radical, Late Ancient, and Prophetic Perspective

  • T. Wilson Dickinson
Part of the Radical Theologies and Philosophies book series (RADT)


This chapter situates the study’s approach to Paul first, in relation to contemporary readings from continental philosophy and political theology (especially Badiou and Caputo). Next, it draws upon a late ancient compilation of Origen’s works, the Philocalia, that functioned, in part, as a handbook on the exercise of reading and the hermeneutics of the wisdom of the cross. Finally, Dickinson highlights the ecologically oriented voice of the prophets that echoes throughout 1 Corinthians.
