The Practical Christology of Philoxenos of Mabbug

David A. Michelson

Oxford Early Christian Studies

  • The first work in English solely focused on the theology of Philoxenos of Mabbug, whose works are the largest surviving single corpus in all of Syriac literature
  • Offers a new approach to the theological disputes over Christology with particular attention to miaphysite/ monophysite perspective, an aspect of the controversy that has often proved opaque in previous scholarship
  • Connects early Christian doctrinal controversies to contexts of religious practice, such as asceticism and liturgy
