Abstract
A literary and philosophical analysis of George Synkellos' (d. 810) historical vision in his 'Chronography'. The article argues that, despite the apparent disciplinary paradox, George Synkellos' vision of history coherently drew together an Aristotelian conception of time with his own exegesis of the scriptures, and a contemporary theology of the encounter with the divine in liturgical worship.
