Hilary of Pontiers on the atonement
The development of Hilary’s thought on the atonement is discussed by comparing his three main works, viz. Commentary on Matthew, De Trinitate and Commentary on the Psalms. His indebtedness to the Early Latin Fathers Tertullian and Cyprian is also pointed out. The so-called divinization of man in Hilary’s works generally ascribed to the influence of Eastern theologians with whom he made contact during his period of exile in the East, may rather be seen as a spiritualisation of the body which is consistent with the ideas of other Latin writers.
