Sorry for not writing anything on this blog for the past three weeks. I just this morning finished a 15,000-word paper on John Bekkos for the journal Communio. Maybe they’ll actually publish it.

And now, to bed.

    Congratulations! How exciting and best of luck. Will it be posted for your blog readership?

    Hello, Brandon.

    I think that, at this point at any rate, it would not be a good idea to post the thing. Mainly this is because copyright issues might be involved, and it might antagonize the people at Communio, who I am hoping will publish it. There is a lot of material that I wrote that, in the process of repeated revising, didn’t end up in the essay; some of this may well work its way onto the blog in the coming weeks and months. I will tell you this much: the title of the essay is “John Bekkos as a reader of the fathers”; the essay argues, as I have maintained occasionally on this blog, that Bekkos is a kind of Old Nicene theologian (although he would not have called himself that), and a better reader of the fathers than he is sometimes given credit for; it tries to identify what are the central rational claims Bekkos makes, and what are the central claims of his opponents; and it makes a case for the genuineness of at least one rather important patristic text which Bekkos cites.

    Thank you for your reply Peter. I certainly hope the Communio editors as as enthralled with your reading of Bekkos as your blog readership!
