John Scottus Eriugena, the bright and arguable Irishman within the courtroom of Charles the Bald (823-877), the grandson of Charlemagne, drew upon either the Latin and Greek patristic traditions on the way to current a daring and unique Christian imaginative and prescient. A thinker, theologian, translator, poet, and mystic, he can be thought of the fitting Carolingian Renaissance guy. This quantity examines his realizing of the Incarnation, the enfleshment of the be aware. at the one hand, Eriugena's Christology creatively appropriates conventional different types which will clarify God's philanthropia in growing, maintaining, and restoring the cosmos. however, it additionally offers a advisor for the believer's mystical participation within the lifetime of Jesus and go back to divine union. This outstanding highbrow from the so-called "Dark a long time" bargains a lot to motivate, and maybe even to startle, modern theologians, philosophers, and believers who think about the secret of the God-made-flesh.

"Having illuminated the darkish a long time, 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 countless, guy and God, and by way of whom unique and private sins are conquered."

"A scholarly gem that conveys the treasures of Eriugena's advanced 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 featuring Eriugena's theology of the incarnation completely. I hugely suggest A Celtic Christology."

"Too frequently handled purely as a transitional determine among patristic and medieval inspiration, or as fascinating exclusively for his philosophical cosmology, John Gavin does a tremendous provider during this tremendous 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 hot mode of man or woman 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 review of Eriugena, however the retrieval of a richly inventive, and hitherto underappreciated, voice within the Christian tradition."
