Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Basil of Caesarea's Anti-Eunomian Theory of Names contains the table of contents, a list of abbreviations and the acknowledgements. The book concerns itself with intellectual developments, their significance can only be fully appreciated when situated within the wider context of the fourth-century Trinitarian controversies. The vigor of the debate between Basil and Eunomius is due as much to the prior history of these controversies as to a concurrence of several contemporary factors, imperial, ecclesiastical, theological, and personal. The book gives an overview of how Basil and Eunomius were participants in the wider conflicts and aspirations of their age. This survey has the additional purpose of introducing and contextualizing many of the councils, figures, and documents discussed in the book.

Keywords:Basil; Caesarea's Anti-Eunomian Theory; Eunomius; Trinitarian controversy
