Résumé

This volume brings together contributions on cosmological issues in Greek Patristic and Byzantine question and answer literature. By adopting this focus, it yields valuable insights in both the theological / philosophical content and the literary form of the texts under discussion. How did Greek Patristic and Byzantine authors understand the world they lived in and the kosmos they were part of? And what literary forms did they find to express their questions and answers on these issues? The authors discussed include Maximus the Confessor, Pseudo-Justin, Pseudo-Caesarius, and Philoponus. Attention also goes to the critical edition of hitherto unedited question and answer literature, as well as to the Greek Patristic and Byzantine reception of cosmological questions and answers from Antiquity (e.g. Aristotle, Plutarch, and Iamblichus).
