Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a defining passage of Bonaventure's christology. The incarnation's double meaning of cosmic completion and the healing of humanity stemming from the union of natures in Christ's person recurs throughout Bonaventure's treatment of the incarnate Word in the Breviloquium. Since understanding the christology of the Breviloquium is significantly impacted by understanding the structure of the text, the chapter describes the structure of the Breviloquium and the incarnate Word's role within it. It analyzes the fourth part of the Breviloquium, which focuses on the incarnation of the Word. In order to understand the structure of the Breviloquium and the function of Bonaventure's treatment of the incarnate Word within it, the chapter surveys the text at its broadest level by simply viewing its seven parts. Bonaventure's examination of the union of natures provides a comprehensive view of the union itself and the unity the incarnate Word creates.
