St. Cyril's Philosophical Theology

Dr. David Bradshaw

Dr. David Bradshaw, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Kentucky, has written an interesting paper on The Philosophical Theology of St. Cyril's Against Julian. It is available to read here.

In this paper Dr. Bradshaw teases out Cyril's understanding of God acting in "separate, discretely considered acts" in history and whether this suggests that "God acts differently at different times and how it is possible given divine eternity and immutability."  There is also the question of whether deliberation and change in proposed course of action suggest deficiency in God's perfect knowledge.
