Christology of Theodoret of Cyrus (The): Antiochene Christology from the Council of Ephesus (431) to the Council of Chalcedon (451), by Paul B. Clayton
An examination of Antiochene Christology from the viewpoint of Theodoret of Cyrus, one of its most brilliant exponents. 400pp Cloth
This study of the largest extant source for fifth-century Antiochene Christology conclusively demonstrates that its fundamental philosophical assumptions about the natures of God and humanity compelled the Antiochenes to assert that there are two subjects in the Incarnation: the Word himself and a distinct human personality. This study provides a thorough examination of Antiochene Christology from one of its richest sources, and explores a crucial theological issue for the early Church - the identity of Jesus Christ. 400pp Cloth (2007)
