Review

An exemplary piece of historical theology! Indeed, it is an excellent contribution to a very important topic that has more than merely historical significance. Barnes’ fine-grained, but nimble analysis of Aquinas’ conception of Christ’s humanity, carefully situated within its thirteenth-century scholastic context, illumines both the crucial dependence and remarkable originality of the Dominican’s mature Christology. It also points up the perduring theological value of the highly integrated nature of scholastic reflection on the person and work of Christ. (Boyd Coolman, Boston College)

"Beachtet man die von uns benannten Grenzen, so bietet die vorliegende Studie eine instruktive Erschliessung scholastischer Christologie im Ausgang von einem wichtigen Spezialproblem. (...) Auch so bietet die Studie jedoch neben zuverlässigen theologiehistorischen Informationen viele Anregungen und Herausforderungen für ein heutiges Nachdenken über das Ineinader von Gottheit und Menschheit in Christus." (Thomas Marschler, in: Archa Verbi, Vol. 10 (2014), p. 217-220)
