This review has been copied from a lecture delivered by RJ Rushdoony Now this is a very important point I don t know how many of you have read Charles Norris Cochrane s Christianity in the Classical World How many of you have Now that is sad but I trust you will get it It is available in paperback It is the most important book written in the past fifty years Written by classical scholar not a Christian and yet a most elouent testimony in spite of itself to the Christian faith Because what Charles Norris Cochrane in compelling fashion declares in that book is this and Dr VanTil incidentally was one of the earlier readers and was the one who informed me of its significance so that I read it very early the Greco Roman world affirmed the freedom of man No God up there controlling man or predestinating man So they affirmed a radical freedom on the part of man his free will But says Cochrane as against the Greco Roman emphasis on the free will of man and against the early churches emphasis on the predestination of man by God it was the early church who produced the free man It was the early church and the predestinarian who were the champions of freedom Why this contradictionWell this was the problem In the Greco Roman world view man as an individual was surrounded by a vast ocean of change a brute factuality This brute factuality overwhelmed man in his solitary freedom here it crucified him because all the factors in this brute world of factuality being random overpowering factors bore down on man The stars determined him heredity determined him environment determined him his parents determined him his education determined him his society his political order and you name it determined man So man with this radical freedom of will in an ocean of brute factuality ended up a hopelessly determined creature But man created in the image of God and predestined by the Sovereign counsel of God as set forth by the church body in terms of victory moved now in a world which was totally predestined by God in which he himself was totally predestined but in which he had as a creature created in the image of God a secondary freedom a secondary causality so that he was not determined He was God s free man So you have the amazing paradox in all the controversy back and forth between the early church fathers and the pagans The pagans insisting on the free will of man ending up by concluding man was totally determined and being totally pessimistic seeing no hope for man and the Christian affirming God s predestination and ending up by being the champions of man s freedom delivering man you see from this world of environment of heredity of the stars of politics and saying NO these things do not determine man As a conseuence he says intellectually the classical worldview collapsed it was a failure and it could not stand up to the arguments and to the witness of the early church so that philosophically the victory went to the church fathers Let me state again the title of that book because it is eminently worth your while Charles North Cochrane Christianity and Classical Culture It was originally published and I think almost certainly still is by the Oxford University Press

This is a re read for me from over a decade ago as I recall At the time I had been much struck by its grasp of Classical and patristic themes I was particularly intrigued by Cochrane s discussion of Romanitas which is still a highly useful and nuanced discussion even today After a decade of a fair amount of reading in both patristics and classics Cochrane still wears well but I can see a few of the cracks Cochrane s main concern is to track the transition between the classical ethos to a Christian one in the course of the first five hundred years of Christianity His grasp of the Classical literature is masterful and he continues to produce useful insights with these authors His discussion of patristic writers tends to be concentrated on the Latin writers culiminating in Augustine In fact St Augustine in the Christian writer par excellence for Cochrane Not that I want to disparage Augustine but it would be interesting to see if the themes that Cochrane pursues would be reflected in say the Cappadocians or St John Chrysothom or later Greek Fathers Similarity Jerome doesn t appear very prominently either which is interesting The influence of Gibbon hangs over this book as well as the a flicker of Syme s Roman Revolution Cochrane writes like a Classicist and has the suitable admiration of the civic ethic of Rome and the standard dislike of monks religious enthusiasm and such He is generally sympathetic to Christianity but his classical loyalties remain strong None of this is a problem but it can get distracting Cochrane remain a useful book to read on the subject of the Christian attitude to the classical world There is a little bit of the Western civ approach with this book which tends to set my teeth on edge as a bias goes it can get rather cozy to be a Anglo Saxon admirer of the Classics It is no worse than in sources of the era and sometimes our own Well worth reading especially for those inclined to intellectual history written in a traditional vein
