Christian Origins by Dr. Lewis Ayres

Book Description

Christian Origins is an exploration of the historical course and nature of early Christian theology, which concentrates on setting it within particular traditions or sets of traditions. In the three sections of the volume, Reading Origen, Reading the Fourth Century and Christian Origins in the Western Traditions, the contributors reconsider classic themes and texts in the light of the existing traditions of interpretation. They offer critiques of early Christian ideas and texts and they consider the structure and origins of standard modern readings of these ideas and texts. The contributors employ a variety of methodological approaches to analyse the interplay between ancient philosophical traditions and the development of Christian thought and to redefine the parameters between the previously accepted divisions in the traditions of Christian theology and thought.

Books By Author Dr. Lewis Ayres

Individuality in Late Antiquity by Dr. Lewis Ayres Individuality in Late Antiquity, Hardback (February 2014)

Late antiquity is increasingly recognised as a period of important cultural transformation. One of its crucial aspects is the emergence of a new awareness of human individuality. In this book, the authors assess the influence of seminal thinkers, including the Gnostics, Plotinus, and Augustine.

Augustine and the Trinity by Dr. Lewis Ayres Augustine and the Trinity, Paperback (January 2014)

A new treatment of Augustine's highly influential theology of the Trinity, challenging the long-held assumption that he over-emphasized God's unity.

Porphyry in Fragments by Dr. Lewis Ayres Porphyry in Fragments, Hardback (March 2013)

The Greek philosopher Porphyry of Tyre had a reputation as the fiercest critic of Christianity. It was well-deserved: he composed fifteen discourses against the Christians, so offensive that Christian emperors ordered them to be burnt. We thus rely on the testimonies of three prominent Christian writers to know what Porphyry wrote.

Clothed in the Body by Dr. Lewis Ayres Clothed in the Body, Hardback (July 2010)

Examines the apparent paradox that Jesus' earthly existence and post resurrection appearances are experienced through consummately physical actions and attributes yet some ascetics within the Christian tradition appear to seek to deny the value of the human body, to find it deadening of spiritual life.
