SYMBOLON is an informal study group dedicated to the study of exegesis and doctrine in early Christian literature. We are interested in becoming more familiar with some of the major texts of early Christianity, while keeping our focus on the intimate relation between biblical exegesis, doctrinal developments, and liturgy. The name SYMBOLON seems appropriate, since it is not only a key term for patristic exegesis of Scripture, but also a common designation of creedal texts and Ps-Dionysius’ term for sacraments.
