Series: Changing Paradigms in Historical and Systematic Theology


Show Summary Details


This book avoids the categories that beset a certain type of historical theology written since Theodore de Régnon at the end of the 19th century, doing so in order to reveal the mistakes in the historiography of doctrine that Newman introduced and that some Anglophone scholars inherited. The conclusion suggests what influence these mistakes had on the writings of subsequent Oxford scholars on Athanasius's view of the Trinity and on the importance of Origen.

Keywords: historical theology; doctrine; de Régnon; 19th century; Newman; Oxford; Athanasius; Trinity; Origen
