Chapter Summary

This index is the list of biblical verses that occur in this book titled Basil of Caesarea's Anti-Eunomian Theory of Names. Basil of Caesarea's debate with Eunomius of Cyzicus in the early 360s marks a turning point in the fourth-century Trinitarian controversies. It shifted focus to methodological and epistemological disputes underlying theological differences. This monograph explores one of these fundamental points of contention: the proper theory of names. While Eunomius held that names uniquely predicated of God communicated the divine essence, in response Basil developed a "notionalist" theory wherein all names signify primarily notions and secondarily properties, not essence.

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