The Ecumenical Legacy of the Cappadocians brings the Cappadocian Fathers to life and explores their contributions to subsequent Christian thought. Combining a thematic and individualistic approach, the book examines Cappadocian thought in the context of Greek philosophy and the musings of other Christian thinkers of the time. This volume is unique in that it details the Cappadocian legacy upon the three central divisions of Christianity, rather than focusing on one confession. Provides a multifaceted assessment of the spirituality and beliefs of the 4th century Church, contributors interweave bibliographical and historical studies into their philosophical and theological discussions. The volume draws together an international team of scholars, from a variety of academic backgrounds including philosophy, theology, and Classics. The Cappadocians' theological contributions in terms of pneumatology and Christology are examined, and the contributors also pick apart their influence on ethics. The book sets the Cappodocians' theoretical views in relief against the political and historical background of their day, enlivening and vivifying the analysis with engaging biographical sketches.
