Nemesius of Emesa on Human Nature

A Cosmopolitan Anthropology from Roman Syria

David Lloyd Dusenbury

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • Offers a comprehensive interpretation of the first Christian anthropology (written circa 390 CE)
  • Suggests that Nemesius' sophisticated chapters on human physiology are written in support of his theory of human freedom
  • Demonstrates that Nemesius' 'world-picture' is consistent with philosophical and theological traditions of late antiquity
