Troeltsch and the ‘Cumulative Case’ against Incarnational Christology

Troeltsch and the ‘Cumulative Case’ against Incarnational Christology

(p.103) 4 Troeltsch and the ‘Cumulative Case’ against Incarnational Christology
Christ without Absolutes

Sarah Coakley

Oxford University Press

This chapter evaluates the full range of reasons which compelled Troeltsch to reject incarnational Christology. His arguments against incarnational Christology are somewhat scattered among his theological writings. The discussion arranges his reasons into a ‘cumulative case’. This case is divided into three parts: first, the arguments that spring from Troeltsch's commitment to Historismus; second, the points emerging from his doctrines of God, redemption, and revelation; and third, difficulties arising directly from Christological reflection.

Keywords:   incarnation, relativism, theology, Trinity, Historismus, perspectivism
