Product Description

This volume is a collection of primary texts that illustrates the lengthy process by which the early Christians reached a coherent doctrine of God. The period under discussion, generally known as the trinitarian controversy dates from around AD 319, the preaching of Arius, to about AD 419, the completion of Augustine's On the Trinity. The documents reveal the unfolding of the theological process in which the church was seeking to distinguish its faith from paganism and to affirm the salvific character of its message.

    This book includes some very drawn out translations of the earlist trinitarian philosophies. If you are looking to understand the development of the trinity, this is not the book for you. There are many key elements and details left out of this book from a historical perspective. The true contreversey surrounding the trinity was almost entireley left out. The documents pertaining to the earliest form of Christianity(Monotheism)were also left out. If you are looking for the true history of this issue, study the historical facts.
