Christology and Cosmology


Oxford University Press

The purpose of this study is to reconstruct the religious significance of various ancient models of divine activity and soteriology by re-examining the transitions of Logos Christology in the 3rd and 4th centuries. It also employs a particular social and ecclesiastical setting to help illuminate the force, challenges, and intention of his work. The examination of three Alexandrian theological models may thereby help to sharpen the understanding of ancient Christian identity and thought in light of both answers and unresolved questions regarding the nature and shape of salvation.

Keywords:   divine activity, soteriology, Logos Christology, Alexandrian theological models, salvation, Christian identity
