In Reply to: Christianity and Ancient Greek Culture a contradiction? Absolutely not !!! (but it is for those who have not studied the scholarly tradition (of over 1,700 years) of the Orthodox church !!!!! posted by Basil on April 17, 2002 at 19:55:47:
this is all about the organisation of the orthodox church and secondly the way they are not compliant to classical greek thinking.
THEY WERE DEFENETLY NOT INTRERESTED TO PRESERVE AS IT WAS PAGAN!
You named a lot of great greek orthodox clerics,
but they didn't care about greek culture only the christian one!
I underline again, as long as religion plays a big role as it is today we will not be the true heir of greek culture.
The language is only a package the filling is the important thing.
Greece is not greece anymore!
And sorry but the period of cinoclasts showed again how narrow minded orthodox church is. Nobody talks about the christian time in Greece because it was as good/bad as the other societies. --Thanks tothe orthodoxy--
