Divine Powers in Late Antiquity

Edited by Anna Marmodoro and Irini-Fotini Viltanioti

  • Examines aspects of the notion of divine power as developed by the four major figures of Neoplatonism: Plotinus (c. 204-270), Porphyry (c. 234-305), Iamblichus (c.245-325), and Proclus (412-485).
  • Investigates the notion of divine power in early Christian authors, from the New Testament to the Alexandrian school (Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Athanasius the Great) and, further, to the Cappadocian Fathers (Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa), as well as in some of these authors' sources (the Septuagint, Philo of Alexandria).
  • Offers a multidisciplinary approach which gives readers a deeper understanding of the notion of divine power in Late Antiquity.
