Mediation in Marcellus of Ancyra

Mediation in Marcellus of Ancyra

(p.97) 3 Mediation in Marcellus of Ancyra
Christ as Mediator

Jon M. Robertson

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Marcellus of Ancyra's account of the ‘one God’ and how knowledge of that God comes to humanity. It begins by looking at Eusebius of Caesarea's portrait of Marcellus as one who threatened what he understood to be the Christian concept of divine mediation before turning to Marcellus. His comprehension of divine unity is examined in order to understand his perspective of divine mediation. The chapter then investigates how this strict monoprosopic view of God impacted his conception of the Incarnation. Only then will it be possible to appreciate his exposition of the mediation of knowledge of the invisible divine nature as taking place through the visible image of God.

Keywords:   Eusebius of Caesarea, the Word, image of God, divine mediation, Contra Marcellum, Incarnation, knowledge
