This chapter addresses the question: what is the substance of God? It reviews substance language in theology and suggests that one cannot trace a clear conceptual distinction established in antiquity between the substance of God and his invariant attributes. It then turns to attempts to define God's substance and the concept of unity.

Keywords:   substance, God, unity, antiquity, Christian writers, theology
