Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0860782883, Hardcover)

The great Trinitarian and Christological controversies of the 4th-6th centuries provide the main theme for the articles collected here - seven of which appear for the first time in English. Underlying these studies is the author's determination to subject the extant texts to the most careful analysis, in order to reveal fully their true meanings, and to determine the accuracy - or, as is also proved, the inaccuracy - of long-accepted attributions and chronologies. As a result, Professor Abramowski has made a contribution towards unravelling the tangled history of early Christian dogma, not to mention the compilations of Church politics, and towards putting it on a firm chronological basis. Other particular topics covered are those of Antiochene and Nestorian thought, and the contacts between Gnosticism and the Neoplatonists.
