Le kénotisme luthérien et anglican: les christologies de Gottfried Thomasius et Frank Weston

Abstract

Anglican kenotic Christology has been disparaged by its critics as a pale, unoriginal reflection of theologies advanced more thoroughly and competently by nineteenth century German theologians. This article attempts to refute this charge by comparing the Christologies of the German Lutheran theologian Gottfried Thomasius (1802-1875) and the Anglican theologian and churchman Frank Weston (1871-1924). The article demonstrates that Weston’s distinction between the ego and will of the incarnate Logos allows him to advance a new and original kenotic Christology that avoids Thomasius’ problematic and controversial division of the divine essence into relative and absolute divine attributes.
