 About the Book 

The theology of Vincent of Lerins is often reduced to a memorable slogan: We hold that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, and by everyone. Thomas Guarino argues that this Vincentian canon has frequently been taken out of context.MoreThe theology of Vincent of Lerins is often reduced to a memorable slogan: We hold that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, and by everyone. Thomas Guarino argues that this Vincentian canon has frequently been taken out of context. This book introduces Vincents thought and its reception in Christian history, exploring Vincents creative and innovative understanding of the development of doctrine and showing how it informed the thought of John Henry Newman. Guarino contends that Vincents theology contributes significantly to theology and ecumenism in the twenty-first century. The volume is the second in a series on the church fathers edited by Hans Boersma and Matthew Levering.
