Sample text

Born in Alexandria, blind from the fourth or fifth year of his life, he joined presumably early on to the anchorites, the monks and settlers who lived outside the city gates in caves and monasteries in the desert. Whether he had a wife and children is unknown. We know little about his personal lot in life. Despite his blindness, he had acquired a wide education in the Hellenistic sense, especially a detailed knowledge of the Bible. In solitude, he was evidently able to avoid the fluctuating theological and church-political struggles that raged in the city and several times drove the patriarch Athanasius, leader of the orthodox party, into exile.

He remains one of the most significant interpreters of the Greek church fathers for whom there is once again increasing interest today. 2. The Deeper Sense Is Decisive: Didymus the Blind It was in the middle of the Second World War. In a cliff wall in Tura, some ten kilometers south of Cairo, Egyptian workers were preparing a place for a planned munitions depot. While clearing a great cave under the rubble created by ancient quarrying, they came across papyrus pages piled up in a heap. The papyri came from books (codices) in Greek script from the sixth century, originally bound but later ripped apart.

Thus at Ps 39 (40):7 he deals with the phrase he reads in some Septuagint manuscripts, “you have created a body for me,” and comments, “in other (manuscripts) it reads ‘but you have created ears for me’ ” (PTA 285,13). In one interpreter (whom as usual he does not name), he found, “You have transfixed my ears” (285,18). For each of these versions he derives a possible interpretation from the context of the psalm. ” Answer: “I said that allegorical interpretations do not tally completely with the original meanings” (285,19–20).
