Athanasius of Alexandria (circa 298 373) is also given the titles St. Athanasius the Great, Pope St. Athanasius I of Alexandria, St Athanasius the Confessor and (in the Coptic Orthodox Church, mainly) St Athanasius the Apostolic. Among his writings was On the Incarnation, his earliest work, believed to have been written around 320. In it, he invokes Plato and used a definition from the Organon of Aristotle. He was also familiar with the theories of various philosophical schools, and in particular with the developments of Neo-Platonism. In this, St. Athanasius defends the incarnation of Christ and explains why God chose to take human form.
This plain, easy to understand book on Jesus' humanity and divinity, written by a passionate young priest from Alexandria heavily influenced by the desert monks and St. Anthony, was a bestseller in its time. It still holds up today. It was also the first shot in the long fight of "Athanasius against the world", because Arius, a popular but over-the-hill priest and songwriter who was also from Alexandria, had his bestsellers, too. He claimed that Jesus was just another man, even if the most spiffy one God ever made, and his ideas would remain fashionable long after his death.
De Incarnatione Verbi Dei. By: St. E-mail:webmastertmark. Athanasius stood contra mundum ("against the world") in defense of the biblical doctrine of Christ. He opposed Arius when it seemed all the world would follow Arius's heresy. Athanasius's work remains even today the definitive statement of orthodox Trinitarianism. They fashioned idols for themselves in place of the truth and reverenced things that are not, rather than God Who is, as St. Paul says, "worshipping the creature rather than the Creator. Moreover, and much worse, they transferred the honor which is due to God to material objects such as wood and stone, and also to man; and further even than that.
On the Incarnation De Incarnatione Verbi Dei By: St. 1 Αὐτάρκως ἐν τοῖς πρὸ τούτων ἐκ πολλῶν ὀλίγα διαλαβόντες, περὶ τῆς τῶν ἐθνῶν περὶ τὰ εἴδωλα πλάνης καὶ τῆς τούτων δεισιδαιμονίας, πῶς ἐξ ἀρχῆς τούτων γέγονεν ἡ εὕρεσις, ὅτι ἐκ κακίας οἱ ἄνθρωποι ἑαυτοῖς . 5 τὴν πρὸς τὰ εἴδωλα θρησκείαν ἐπενόησαν·. With an introduction by . C. Stirling Bartholomew.
The de Incarnatione, then, is perhaps more appreciated in our day than at any date since the days of its writer. A somewhat similar caution is necessary with regard to the analogy drawn out (41, &c. between the Incarnation and the Union of the Word with the Universe. The treatise itself (17. 1, ἐκτὸς κατ᾽ οὐσίαν, and see notes on 41) supplies the necessary corrective in this case.
