How a Theology of Wisdom Undergirds Classical Education: The Figure of Speaking Wisdom in Proverbs and Beyond.


Jason Barney


“Wisdom cries aloud in the street: in the squares she thunders!” (Prov 1:20). The figure of speaking Wisdom is more than just an intersting literary device: in fact, Jewish and Christian tradition saw in this theology of Wisdom a foundation for what we would call classical educaaion. In this presentation Barney proposes to show how the theology of Wisdom expressed in Proverbs and later Jewish and Christian texts presents us with a traditional and transcending pedagogy.
