(p.215) 5 ‘Into the Holy of Holies’: Cassian's Christology
Tradition and Theology in St John Cassian

A. M. C. Casiday

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines this Cassian's Christocentrism with specific reference to the monastic character of Cassian's theology. Cassian's treatise On the Incarnation of the Lord, against Nestorius the heretic will be chiefly in evidence. It is argued that Cassian's Christological treatise is an indispensable part of his theological oeuvre. Against several detractors of Cassian's treatise, it is argued that it is a work of genuine interest, not simply for the light it throws on Cassian's other works, but in its own right as well. Indeed, it may fittingly be considered the apex of Cassian's literary career.
