The Appropriation of Divine Life in Cyril of Alexandria

Daniel A. Keating

Oxford University Press

Aims to bring Cyril into discussion with three of his near contemporaries, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Augustine, and Leo the Great, with the aim of gaining further clarity to the Christological debates of the fifth century, and a better grasp of the theological similarities and differences between the East and West. In each case, a comparison is made at the level of Christology, pneumatology, and sacramental mediation. Closes with a modest appraisal of two issues commonly perceived as dividing the East and West, namely, salvation as divinization and the personal role of the Holy Spirit is the economy of redemption.

Keywords:   Augustine of Hippo, christology, divinization, Leo the Great, salvation, the Holy Spirit, Theodore of Mopsuestia
