Nicaea and Its Legacy by Dr. Lewis Ayres

Book Description

The first part of Nicaea and its Legacy offers a narrative of the fourth-century trinitarian controversy. It does not assume that the controversy begins with Arius, but with tensions among existing theological strategies. Lewis Ayres argues that, just as we cannot speak of one 'Arian' theology, so we cannot speak of one 'Nicene' theology either, in 325 or in 381. The second part of the book offers an account of the theological practices and assumptions within which pro-Nicene theologians assumed their short formulae and creeds were to be understood. Ayres also argues that there is no fundamental division between eastern and western trinitarian theologies at the end of the fourth century. The last section of the book challenges modern post-Hegelian trinitarian theology to engage with Nicaea more deeply.

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.
