Description:

Neuware - Junillus Africanus served the Byzantine emperor Justinian as chief legal minister from 542 to ca. 549. During this time he composed a treatise on basic principles of biblical exegesis, called the Instituta Regularia Divinae Legis. Michael Maas places Junillus' work in the context of the Three Chapters Controversy, showing that it conformed in every respect to Justinian's version of neo-Chalcedonian orthodoxy and that it bolstered Justinian's claim to be a legitimate interpreter of sacred texts. The authors show that the Instituta had no direct links to the work of Theodore of Mopsuestia and that Junillus' legal training influenced the structure and presentation of the Instituta. Edward G. Mathews' contribution reevaluates Junillus' debt to the school of Nisibis and to the Antiochene exegesis, as well as Junillus' biblical canon. This book reproduces the Latin text and offers a translation into English. 280 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: The emperor Justinian desired doctrinal unity across the empire and, in doing so, entrusted people like Junillus Africanus to help him formulate and carry out various policies. Junillus Africanus' treatise Handbook of the Basic Principles of Divine Law , composed in Constantinople in the 6th century, was a guide to interpreting God's law as found in the Bible. This influential text advocated a new approach to power, faith and society, and to the relationship between the emperor, the Church and the people. This study presents the Latin text with facing-page English translation along with a long introductory section that outlines Junillus' life and career, how he served the emperor, and the historical and religious background to the period in which the treatise was composed.
