Abstract

Nicene trinitarian doctrine (when the Trinity became for the first time the centrepiece of doctrinal orthodoxy) is important not only for theological innovation but also for the redefinition of manhood in the fourth century. Exploring the significance of this movement for the subsequent history of Western masculine ideals, the author directly engages, combines, and disrupts divergent perspectives of historical theology, late Roman cultural history, and French feminist theory, bringing contemporary theorist Luce Irigaray into dialogue with the Patristic corpus. The book centers on performative readings of Athanasius of Alexandria, Gregory of Nyssa, and Ambrose of Milan, each of whom played a crucial role in defending Nicene trinitarian doctrine. Each also modelled a distinctive style of fourth-century masculine self-fashioning. The concluding chapter considers the sum of these three figures from an explicitly feminist theological and theoretical perspective.
