The Christology of Aquinas is resolutely incarnational. The chapter looks at Aquinas’s teaching about the humanity of Christ, with particular attention to the co-assumed, to what is taken up by the Word in becoming incarnate along with the human nature itself

The Christology of Aquinas is resolutely incarnational. Jesus, the incarnate Word, is true God, true human; and that Jesus is the Word, and God, and human, is, Aquinas insists, of decisive importance for human salvation. The chapter looks at Aquinas’s teaching about the humanity of Christ, with particular attention to the co-assumed, to what is taken up by the Word in becoming incarnate along with the human nature itself. The chapter concludes with an assessment of Aquinas’s mature Christology by considering certain criticisms made of this teaching by those less comfortable with an incarnational approach.

The work advances understandings of scholastic Christology in two basic ways

The work advances understandings of scholastic Christology in two basic ways. First, it traces the development of scholastic discussions of Christ's wills, attending to the contested issues, to the context of debates, to the use of sources and distinctions, and to the larger implications of these discussions for scholastic Christology.

This book investigates scholastic discussions of Christ?s wills from Anselm of Canterbury to John Duns Scotus, concentrating on Thomas Aquinas. The work advances understandings of scholastic Christology in two basic ways. First, it traces the development of scholastic discussions of Christ?s wills, attending to the contested issues, to the context of debates, to the use of sources and distinctions, and to the larger implications of these discussions for scholastic Christology. Second, the book utilizes this general analysis as a backdrop for examining the role granted to Christ?s humanity by Thomas Aquinas. It argues that Aquinas, based upon his highly developed understanding of Christ?s wills, his novel use of patristic sources, and his own terminological and conceptual advancements, portrays Christ?s humanity as an instrumentum divinitatis that, through its free will and operation, acts as the instrumental efficient cause of salvation. As such, Thomas developed and extended Anselm?s basic soteriological insight by highlighting the Incarnation and passion as the most fitting means for redemption precisely in their elevation of human dignity in intellect and will. Serious challenges, both medieval and modern, have been directed against Aquinas?s Christological formulations. In responding to these challenges, the book demonstrates the enduring value of Aquinas?s Christology.
