Chapter Summary

The only thing the author can say with a certain plausibility about the origin of his term is that it probably belonged to Origen's technical trinitarian vocabulary, although he apparently used it also in a wider, less technical sense. Considering the fragmentary character of the literary remains from the third century, he will nevertheless be well advised to refrain from further speculation about the origin and entire range of possible meanings of the term and focus on the development of its technical usage in trinitarian theology and Christology.

Keywords:Christology; trinitarian theology
