Summary In Physicalist Soteriology in Hilary of Poitiers, Ellen Scully presents Hilary as a representative of the mystical or physical trajectory of patristic soteriology most often associated with the Greek fathers. Scully shows that Hilarys physicalism is unique, both in its Latin non-Platonic provenance and its conceptual foundation, namely that the incarnation has salvific effects for all humanity because Christs body contains every human individual. Hilarys soteriological conviction that all humans are present in Christs body has theological ramifications that expand beyond soteriology to include christology, eschatology, ecclesiology, and Trinitarian theology. In detailing these ramifications, Scully illumines the pervasive centrality of physicalism in Hilarys theology while correcting standard soteriological presentations of physicalism as an exclusively Greek phenomenon.
