Description

Angelomorphic Christology and the Exegesis of Psalm 8:5 in Tertullian's Adversus Praxean explores the reluctance of Tertullian of Carthage (160-220 A.D.) to predicate angelic properties of the Lord Jesus Christ. This fresh and insightful work suggests that one reason for this aversion to angelic or angelomorphic Christology was his hermeneutical approach to Psalm 8:5.
