Approaches to Analysis

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the different approaches of analytic Christology. It discusses the distinction between word/flesh or Alexandrian Christologies and word/man or Antiochene ones, the distinction between Christologies that begin from two abstract natures and those that begin from a single concrete person, and the Christologies from above and Christologies from below. The chapter also analyses the implications of these approaches for traditional Christological views.

Keywords: analytic Christology; word/flesh; word/man; Alexandrian Christologies; Antiochene Christology; religious criticism
