Shall the body strive and not be crowned?
Chris Gousmett has an electronic version of his PhD thesis on-line: 'Shall the Body Strive and Not be Crowned? Unitary and instrumentalist anthropological models as keys to interpreting the structure of Patristic eschatology'. It looks at the development and structure of eschatological views in Patristic thought, as expressed through the correlation with their views of human nature (body/soul problems). This thesis explores how the problem of synthesis between Biblical and pagan thought came to expression in a particular aspect of theology and philosophy, and is an attempt to work out a reformational interpretation of how views in anthropology and eschatology developed within a synthesis dynamic.
