The Spirit and the Imago Dei: Reviewing the Anthropology of Irenaeus of Lyons
This is an article on theological anthropology, and in particular the anthropology of Irenaeus of Lyons. Was Irenaeus responsible for the distinction between the image of God and the likeness of God in man? This article looks at the importance of the theme in Irenaeus' thought in which he speaks of the Son and the Spirit as the "two hands" of the Father. The significance of this for Christian spirituality is explored.
