Camille Lepeigneux: The dance of King David (2 Reigns, 6, 14-21) : the patristic exegesis

The dance of David is one of the few episodes in 2 Reigns which gave raise to significant commentaries by the Church Fathers. The talk will investigate the different aspects of patristic exegesis, both in greek and latin, after a discussion on the textual tradition of the greek text, and a few comments about the way it should be understood and translated. This investigation is part of a broader study of the patristic exegesis of 2 Reigns in the team gathered by Sébastien Morlet for the future volume "2 Reigns" in the "Bible d'Alexandrie" collection.
