    Incredible, just listened to it. Just what I was looking for. Definitely makes sense that 'Scripture with the interpretation of the fathers, results in doctrine.' Thank you for sharing the podcast.

    A really interesting discussion, even if I think he made a rather self-serving and forced use of Article XX. But he did much service to the cause by explaining how we distinguish the apostolic tradition from some new thing or even heresy. Some have tended to neglect or ignore the Eastern and Oriental fathers (Cyril of Alexandria is not exactly a must read in most Anglican circles, nor Maximus Confessor or even Basil of Caesarea). Rather, there are pockets of Anglican fundamentalism -such as it were- that primarily only read Ambrose, Augustine, Cyprian, Gregory the Great, maybe Pope Leo and the Venerable Bede. I think the tide is changing, at least in conservative circles, as we seek ecumenical dialogue with the East and Orient.
