Ascetic Pneumatology from John Cassian to Gregory the good provides 3 interconnected arguments. the 1st argument issues scholarly readings of antiquity: there are advancements in fifth and sixth century Latin pneumatology which we have now ignored. Theologians like John Cassian and Gregory the nice have been engaged in an important dialogue of the way the Holy Spirit works inside Christian ascetics to reform their internal lives. different theologians, like Leo the
Great, take part to a lesser quantity in an identical undertaking. They utilized pneumatology to theological anthropology. Thomas L. Humphries, Jr. labels that improvement "ascetic pneumatology," and beings to trace many of the overdue old colleges of thought of the Holy Spirit. the second one argument matters the
reception of Augustine within the centuries instantly after his dying: diverse humans learn Augustine otherwise. Augustine's theology was once recognized and understood to various levels in quite a few areas. Humphries demonstrates major engagements with Augustine's theology because it was once suitable to Pelagianism (evidenced in Prosper of Aquitaine), because it was once proper to Gallic Arians (evidenced with the Lérinian theologians), and because it used to be appropriate to African Arians and likely questions posed
of Nestorianism (evidenced with Fulgentius of Ruspe). rather than trying to rank numerous theologians as higher and worse "Augustinians," Humphries argues that there have been other forms of "Augustinianisms" even within the years instantly after Augustine. The 3rd argument issues Gregory the Great
and his assets. after we see that ascetic pneumatology was once a pressure of notion during this period and spot that there are other forms of Augustinianisms, we will be able to see that Gregory will depend on either Augustine and Cassian. within the ultimate chapters, Humphries argues that Gregory makes use of Cassian's ascetic pneumatology, and this enables Gregory's synthesis of Cassian and Augustine to face in better aid than it has earlier than. The learn starts off with Cassian, ends with Gregory, and is aware of Augustine
throughout.
