Book Description

1 Sep 1994 Vigiliae Christianae, Supplements (Book 27)
This text examines the use of 1 and 2 Corinthians by two 4th-century Greek Christian authors, Athanasius and Basil of Caesarea, especially as it relates to the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. The controversy over the nature and status of the Spirit during the latter half of the 4th century is detailed in order to place in context the way in which the theological concerns of Athanasius and Basil shaped their pneumatological interpretation of the Corinthian correspondence. This examination should be useful for patristic scholars interested in the way Scripture was employed in the 4th century to hammer out doctrine.

Product Description


'Although Haykin does not work on unexplored grounds, his lucidly written book doubtlessly testifies to his mastery of the complex material. ...valuable and trustworthy study...' J. Van Oort, Vigiliae Christianae, 1996. 'This is a useful piece of work. All the importance ancient discussions are taken up...this is a worthwile exercise in fieldwork, which students of patristic doctrine and exegesis should consult.' L.R. Wickham, Journal of Theological Studies, 1996.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Treatment of Pneumatological Exegesis 11 Feb 2003
By H. Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Haykin has done an admirable job in summarizing the essential elements of the Nicene response to the Pneumatomachian rejection of the Holy Spirit as God. What emerged from this controversy was not, as some might believe, an unimitigated triumph for catholic orthodoxy, but a diluted, compromise acknowledgment in the Constantinopolitan creed (so called "Nicene" creed recited in the Ctaholic and Orthodox Church today)that the Holy Spirit deserves the same worship as the Father and Son, but no explicit equation of the three as being God. And even this required the Emperor Theodosius to issue an edict requiring that the three be equally worshipped. I would have liked a little more of the Pneumatomachian view than Haykin provided, but his exposition of the exegesis used to marginalize them adequately describes why the heresy met the fate it met.
