John Scottus Eriugena, the intense and arguable Irishman within the court docket of Charles the Bald (823-877), the grandson of Charlemagne, drew upon either the Latin and Greek patristic traditions so as to current a daring and unique Christian imaginative and prescient. A thinker, theologian, translator, poet, and mystic, he should be thought of the fitting Carolingian Renaissance guy. This quantity examines his knowing of the Incarnation, the enfleshment of the notice. at the one hand, Eriugena's Christology creatively appropriates conventional different types which will clarify God's philanthropia in developing, maintaining, and restoring the cosmos. however, it additionally offers a consultant for the believer's mystical participation within the lifetime of Jesus and go back to divine union. This wonderful highbrow from the so-called "Dark a while" deals a lot to motivate, and maybe even to startle, modern theologians, philosophers, and believers who consider the secret of the God-made-flesh.

"Having illuminated the darkish a while, the Irish genius can nonetheless stimulate Thomist, post-Kantian, and postmodern theologians to consider anew the secret of Christ in whom are united time and eternity, finite and limitless, guy and God, and via whom unique and private sins are conquered."
--John McDermott, Professor of Theology, Sacred middle significant Seminary, Michigan

"A scholarly gem that conveys the treasures of Eriugena's complicated ninth-century Irish brain with competence and aptitude. Gavin's scholarship is thorough, his writing is a version of lucidity, and the style during which he plans and executes this paintings serves his venture of providing Eriugena's theology of the incarnation completely. I hugely suggest A Celtic Christology."
--James Corkery, Professor of Theology, Milltown Institute, Ireland

"Too usually handled only as a transitional determine among patristic and medieval idea, or as attention-grabbing exclusively for his philosophical cosmology, John Gavin does a tremendous carrier during this wonderful monograph, not just of giving Eriugena his personal reasonable listening to, yet showcasing his little-studied Christology. Gavin masterfully unfolds Eriugena's insights into the character of Christ's embodiment, its cosmic and salvific results, and the recent mode of individual grounded in his old incarnation."
--Paul M. Blowers, Dean E. Walker Professor of Church background, Emmanuel Christian Seminary, Tennessee

"In this brilliantly lucid and profoundly insightful publication, John Gavin effectively demonstrates the pervasive Christocentrism of Eriugena's imaginative and prescient, in addition to his indebtedness to the Greek patristic culture, specially Maximus the Confessor. the result's not just a groundbreaking revisionist fulfillment within the scholarly overview of Eriugena, however the retrieval of a richly inventive, and hitherto underappreciated, voice within the Christian tradition."
--Khaled Anatolios, Professor of old Theology, Boston collage, Massachusetts
