Lancelot Andrewes, the Preacher (1555-1626)

Nicholas Lossky

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the Christmas sermons of Lancelot Andrewes. Among his several sermons, seventeen were devoted to the Nativity and were preached on the 25th of December before James I and the Court between 1605 and 1624. His sermons display a sense of unity in their central theme and reveal a great diversity in the manner of treatment. His Nativity sermons display a vision of the dogma of Incarnation with all its doctrinal and spiritual implications and the chapter looks at how they discuss the central paradox of the two natures of Christ: the divine nature and the human nature.

Keywords:   Christmas sermons, sermons, Nativity, 1600s, Nativity sermons, dogma of Incarnation, natures of Christ, divine nature, human nature
