The Soteriology of Leo the Great

Bernard Green

Oxford University Press

Leo preached about twelve sermons a year in a cycle through the Church's calendar. The first cycle, preached in 440-1, reveals both some of Leo's leading ideas but also the gaps in his thought at that stage. His message is that salvation is ecclesial and sacramental, sharpening the ideas of Augustine. His soteriology is an expression of an Augustinian Christology in which Christ is the mediating union of divine and human, though his appreciation of the role of the divinity in salvation needed further exploration.
