About the Author

Clement Kuehn received his Ph.D. in Classical Studies from Loyola University Chicago. His dual interests in papyrus and religion led to several articles on papyrological topics and his first book: Channels of Imperishable Fire. The Beginnings of Christian Mystical Poetry and Dioscorus of Aphrodito (1995). When an archive of sixth century Greek papyri was discovered in Petra, Jordan, in 1993, Kuehn joined Ludwig Koenen and Jaakko Frösén in an attempt to conserve and decipher them (The Petra Papyri I). As a Senior Research Fellow of the United States Information Agency, Kuehn remained in Jordan until 1996, when he became Assistant Professor of Classical Studies at Fordham University in New York City. His current research is divided between papyrology and manuscripts.

John Baggarly entered the Society of Jesus on August 18, 1949, and was ordained to the priesthood on June 12, 1960. He received his S.T.D. degree (Sacrae Theologiae Doctor) from the Pontificia Universitas Gregoriana (Rome). He taught theology at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary (Mundelein) and at the Pontificium Institutum Studiorum Orientalium (Rome). In 1983 he became Librarian at the Pontificium Institutum, where he remained until 1996. When he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, he retired to the Colombiere Center in Michigan, where he passed away on September 2, 2009, at the age of 83.

Format: Paperback
Anastasius Sinaita probably wrote Hexameron in the seventh or eighth century. It shows how early Christians often interpreted the scriptures as spiritual allegory, rather than relying only on the type of literalism that is present today. Anastasius argues that in addition to the literal creation, Moses wrote prophecy of the New Creation through Christ.

I love reading this beautiful book. It is a wonderful compilation of Anastasius' writings on the subject.
