Orthodoxy (1908) is a book by G. K. Chesterton that has become a classic of Christian apologetics. Chesterton considered this book a companion to his other work, Heretics, writing it expressly in response to G.S. Street's criticism of the earlier work, "that he was not going to bother about his theology until I had really stated mine". In the book's preface Chesterton states the purpose is to "attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." In it, Chesterton presents an original view of Christian religion. He sees it as the answer to natural human needs, the "answer to a riddle" in his own words, and not simply as an arbitrary truth received from somewhere outside the boundaries of human experience.

  • Orthodoxy (1908) is a book by G. K. Chesterton that has become a classic of Christian apologetics. Chesterton considered this book a companion to his other work, Heretics, writing it expressly in response to G.S. Street's criticism of the earlier work, "that he was not going to bother about his theology until I had really stated mine". In the book's preface Chesterton states the purpose is to "attempt an explanation, not of whether the Christian faith can be believed, but of how he personally has come to believe it." In it, Chesterton presents an original view of Christian religion. He sees it as the answer to natural human needs, the "answer to a riddle" in his own words, and not simply as an arbitrary truth received from somewhere outside the boundaries of human experience. The book was written when Chesterton was an Anglican. He converted to Catholicism 14 years later. Chesterton chose the title, Orthodoxy, to focus instead on the plainness of the Apostles' Creed, though he admitted the general sound of the title was "a thinnish sort of thing". Orthodoxy was influential in the conversion of Theodore Maynard to Roman Catholicism. (en)
  • Ortodoxia es un ensayo de G. K. Chesterton, publicado en 1908, que se ha convertido en un clásico sobre apologética cristiana. En él presenta una visión original de la religión cristiana, que Chesterton ve como una respuesta a las necesidades naturales de los seres humanos, la «respuesta a un acertijo», y no como una verdad arbitraria recibida de alguna parte extraña a la experiencia humana. Chesterton consideraba este libro como un compañero de su libro Herejes. En el prefacio, el autor explica que el propósito del libro que es «intentar una explicación, no sobre si la fe cristiana puede ser creída, sino cómo fue que él llegó a creer en ella». (es)

  • 『正統とは何か』(せいとうとはなにか、英: Orthodoxy、1908年)はG. K. チェスタトンの著書であり、キリスト教擁護論の古典であり続けている。チェスタトンは本書を自分の別の著書『異端者の群れ』の手引書とみなした。本書の序文でチェスタトンが言っているところによると、本書の目的は、「キリスト教を信じられるかどうかについてではなく、いかにして彼は個人的にキリスト教を信じるようになったかについての説明を試みること」である。本書でチェスタトンはキリスト教についての独自の見解を示している。彼はキリスト教のことを人間が自然に必要とすることへの答え、彼自身の言葉によると「難題への答え(answer to a riddle)」とみなしており、人間が経験することの限界の外側のどこかで得られた単なる独断的な真理とはみなしていない。 (ja)
  • Ortodossia (Orthodoxy) è una raccolta di saggi dello scrittore inglese G. K. Chesterton, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1908. In essi l'autore esprime in modo completo la sua filosofia e la sua visione del mondo. Lo spunto dell'opera si ebbe quando Eretici suscitò le ire e le sfide di numerosi critici, perché stroncava le filosofie coeve senza proporre una chiara alternativa; Chesterton non si lasciò intimorire e rispose dando Ortodossia alle stampe tre anni dopo. Ortodossia è considerato il capolavoro di Chesterton. (it)
