Abstract

This study focuses on two significant but overlooked aspects of Hilary of Poitiers' theology: his interpretation of how we 'become God' as individuals, and the originality of his twelve volume 'De trinitate' in expressing it. Janet Sidaway argues that Hilary's ideas had their origin in his baptismal confession of faith and Biblical exegesis, but were then shaped by his response to the 'Arians' and to Marcellus of Ancyra. She illustrates Hilary's emphasis on the soteriological importance of the human nature of the incarnate Christ, and on his brotherhood with us. He interpreted the Transfiguration to reveal Christ's glory as a perfect human being, and suggested that Christ remains in some sense corporeally human after the Ascension. Because we share Christ's human body, we too may share this glory. Sidaway proposes that, although Hilary's ideas were ignored by his immediate successors, they are similar to the theology of the body formulated by Dante in the 'Divine Comedy', and resonate with the current concepts of Transformation Theology.

Abstract

Deification in the Greek patristic tradition was the fulfillment of the destiny for which humanity was created - not merely salvation from sin but entry into the fullness of the divine life of the Trinity. This book, the first on the subject for over sixty years, traces the history of deification from its birth as a second-century metaphor with biblical roots to its maturity as a doctrine central to the spiritual life of the Byzantine Church. Drawing attention to the richness and diversity of the patristic approaches from Irenaeus to Maximus the Confessor, Norman Russell offers a full discussion of the background and context of the doctrine, at the same time highlighting its distinctively Christian character.

Abstract

"Contributors to this volume refute the widely held perception that the doctrine of deification primarily belonged in the Eastern Church, and that the Western Church reduced the rich biblical and Greek patristic understanding of salvation to a narrow view of redemption. To the contrary, these essays provide evidence of the wide-ranging use of deification themes in major Latin patristic sources, showing that deification was a native part of early Latin theology that was consitently and creatively employed"--
