Tertullian's unique use of 'patience' as a salvific paradigm, grounds a conception of human nature, and particularly sin and 'fallen nature', articulated in economic terms. This article takes this conception, together with Tertullian's bipartite anthropology, to disclose a unique understanding of humanity's sinful condition. As the two composite 'parts' of man art interrelated in an economy of relation to God, so we will argue Tertullian grounds his concept of soteriology in his vision of the human person, linking it intrinsically to the life of Christ and the offering of the cross, uniting the human to the trinitarian life of Father, Son and Spirit.
