The Soteriology of Leo the Great

Bernard Green

Oxford University Press

The subsequent four cycles of sermons showed the refinement and development of Leo's thought as he sought to coordinate the divine and human natures of Christ into a coherent soteriology. The influence of Ambrose and Hilary of Poitiers were apparent in addition to Augustine. He was engaged in conflict with Manichaeism, which led him to stress the humanity of Christ. Sermons on the Transfiguration and the Ascension are of particular interest in showing his mature understanding of soteriology grounded in Christology.
