Further reading 9 Early life Although he became blind at the age of four,[4] before he had learned to read, he succeeded in mastering the whole gamut of the sciences then known. Despite his blindness, Didymus excelled in scholarship because of his incredible memory. He found ways to help blind people to read, and experimented with carved wooden letters, akin to Braille systems used by the blind today.

He counted among his pupils Palladius, Rufinus , Evagrius , and Jerome ,[8] who mentions in his letters that he "wrote to Didymus calling him my master" and defends this tutelage as one of a man "both old and learned.

Jerome also wrote that Didymus "surpassed all of his day in knowledge of the Scriptures" and Socrates of Constantinople later called him "the great bulwark of the true faith". Didymus the Blind. In the Third Council of Constantinople in , Didymus was again linked with and condemned with Origen. However, the doctrine of Origen and Didymus that was found to be the most "heretical" was not universalism, nor was it the reliance on the non canonical Gospel according to the Hebrews , nor even his belief that Matthew and Levi were two different people, but rather the belief in the "Abominable doctrine of the transmigration of souls ".

According to Palladius, Didymus also authored an exegetical work on both the Old and New Testaments, mostly believed to be lost. There also exists a brief treatise Against the Manichees. There has been greater doubt over two further works traditionally attributed to Didymus. These include his commentaries on Zechariah, Genesis , part of Job and parts of uncertain authenticity on Ecclesiastes and Psalms He moves from the text he is commenting on to a wide variety of other passages, quoting less frequently from the historical books which do not suit his allegorical method.

Besides the gift of having a mind like a concordance, he also shows familiarity with philosophical terms and categories of the Stoics , Epicureans , and Pythagoreans from whom, with Philo , he derives his occasional number symbolism hermeneutic. His works also seem to cite passages from the deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament as well as Barnabas , the Shepherd of Hermas and the Acts of John.

According to Bart Ehrman , his canon extended to at least include Barnabas and the Shepherd. It has been suggested by R. Why Didymus would not have inherited his teachers later hesitation is unclear. Among his peers his hermeneutical method seems to have been met with mixed reactions.

Readers such as Diodore in Antioch found his hermeneutical approach somewhat gratuitous and arbitrary. What none seem to deny, however, is that Didymus was unhindered by blindness in his remarkable ability to recall the sacred text. He concludes there must be two natures united in Christ, not speculating on precisely how these work together but restricting himself to the expression "a single Christ. The fragmentary nature of his writing at this point does not allow us to draw definite conclusions, but he does speak of "universal salvation.

Didymus seems to have also accepted the pre-existence of souls, and considers the afterlife as a process of purification, though, according to Florovsky, he rejects metempsychosis. He describes the Day of the Lord as an internal illumination of the soul, and in the future world he believes that evil "as a quality" will no longer exist.

For him, as in Origen, the true gnostics possess a divine philosophy, one which allows them to defend themselves against heretics by giving a clear confession of the faith. Throughout his theology the influence of Origen is revealed, various aspects of which, particularly his eschatology, must have led to the condemnation of his works.
