Abstract

Abstract:

The aim of this article is to show that reading Victorinus's soteriology in light of his cosmological framework reveals that his teaching concerning the universals in Christ's incarnate body participates in the often-maligned patristic soteriological trajectory named "mystical," "physical," or "physicalism." Victorinus's cosmology extends into a physicalist soteriology in which the crucifixion liberates all humanity from its captivity to materiality because Christ contains in himself the universal form of humanity.
