The Trinitarian Controversy

Format: Digital
ISBN: 0800614100


This volume explores the development of the doctrine of the Trinity in the Patristic Church following the Arian controversy. Rather than presenting the discussion or debates on contemporary scholars, The Trinitarian Controversy presents original letters, documents, creeds, and debates among the Church Fathers and Arius himself to gain a first-hand view of the controversy as it developed chronologically in the early centuries of the Church. A brief introduction to these early church texts is included to help provide the reader with larger biblical and historical context of the documents included.
