Ascetic Pneumatology from John Cassian to Gregory the Great

Thomas L. Humphries

Oxford University Press

As the conclusion to this book, this chapter points out new areas for continued exploration. The theologians considered here are not the only important theologians engaged in ascetic pneumatology; nor are they the only theologians studying Augustine in late antiquity. Rather, the theologians studied here serve as high points, exemplars, and bookends for a treatment of a previously unexplored area of the theology of the Holy Spirit that can be called “ascetic pneumatology.” This chapter argues that a significant element of Christian consideration of the Holy Spirit is the study and practice of how we become completely permeable to and aflame with the Lord and giver of life, the Holy Spirit.

Keywords:   ascetic pneumatology, Abba Lot, Abba Joseph, Abba David, Cassiodorus, Quodvultdeus, reception of Augustine
