Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the contours and intent of Hilary's Christology to better situate it within the context of his own thought and fourth century Pro-Nicene Christology as a whole. The author examines Hilary's development of the forma servi - forma dei model in its historical and polemical context. First, the author elaborates how he develops this model as a way of explaining the Passion of Christ in De Trinitate. Second, the author reveals how this new model both departs from his doctrine of the Incarnation in In Matthaeum and may reflect the influence of Basil of Ancyra. Third, the author shows how this new model functions in a polemical context by refuting Homoian claims that the Son's suffering makes him less than the Father. Fourth, the author details how for Hilary this account of the Incarnation has significant implications for a Pro-Nicene soteriology.
