Torsten Krannich examines the Christology of Latin-speaking theologians at the beginning of the 5th century. He presents the Christological concepts of the three monks Leporius, John Cassian and Vincent of Lerins as well as those of the three popes Caelestin I, Sixtus III and Leo the Great. The author focuses on the question of how individuals were able to formulate the relationship between divine and human nature in Jesus Christ.
Torsten Krannich examines the Christology of Latin-speaking theologians at the beginning of the 5th century. He presents the Christological concepts of the three monks Leporius, John Cassian and Vincent of Lerins as well as those of the three popes Caelestin I, Sixtus III and Leo the Great. In order to do so, the author takes a look at the background of this in the history of dogmatic theology, a background which was formed by the controversy surrounding the Christology of Nestorius, the Patriarch of Constantinople, as well as Augustine's Christology. The author focuses on the question of how individuals were able to formulate the relationship between divine and human nature in Jesus Christ. For the first time, the complete Libellus emendationis, written by Leporius, has been translated into a modern language and furnished with a commentary.
