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 was not only a pagan concept but a metaphor for a deeply Christian view of the purpose of human life. Norman Russell brings together much recent research on the Church Fathers from the second to the seventh centuries, offering an analysis of their spiritual teaching and setting it within the context of the times. - ;Deification in the Greek patristic tradition was the fulfilment 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

Abstract

Perhaps no declaration incites more outrage than a human's claim to be God. Those who make this claim in ancient Jewish and Christian mythology are typically either demonized or deified. This work examines this topic.

Abstract

This book attempts to resolve one of the oldest and bitterest controversies between the Eastern and Western Christian churches: namely, the dispute about the doctrine of deification. A. N. Williams examines two key thinkers, each of whom is championed as the authentic spokesman of his own tradition and reviled by the other. Taking Aquinas as representative of the West and Gregory Palamas for the East, she presents fresh readings of their work that both reinterpret each thinker and show an area of commonality between them much greater than has previously been acknowledged.
