Example text

His emphasis on the role of bishops as theologians par excellence makes his position in the end vulnerable for apologetic tendencies and hence not fail-safe with regard to new idolatrous development. While he may indeed have opened the doors to the tradition, he has not done so to the church (Marion 1991, 153–156). From Protestant-Catholic Esthetics to Patristic Testimony Rather than passing judgment on which tradition is to be favoured on the right balance between text and image, we should perhaps leave room for the fact that what we are dealing with here may in the end come down to differences of an esthetic nature.

Most especially, it points to the dual role of Christ as both human and divine. In the early church Christ’s dual role seems to have created some confusion. Sometimes it seems the human person is seen as created in the image of Christ the Son rather than of God the Father, whereas at other times Christ is seen as the true image of God,4 with the human person being a reÁection of Christ.
