 Theological Trajectories In the Early Fourth Century: II

Show Summary Details


Initially discusses two more theological trajectories. The first is that of Marcellus of Ancyra. Discusses the possible relations of Marcellus to ‘Monarchianism’ and to Eustathius of Antioch. The second is that of Latin theology c.300. Argues against the idea that Latin theology in this period focuses on the unity of God and is simply a reiteration of Tertullian. Through an examination of Lactatntius, Novatian, and the early Hilary, the author argues for a context shaped by anti-adoptionism. The end of the chapter turns to whether we can speak of ‘orthodoxy’ c.300.
