Gottingen 1976, pp 435-48. 45 TRINITY AND INCARNATION THE SOTERIOLOGICAL VISION OF THE GREEK APOLOGISTS other apologists, did not intend from the first with their Logos-theology to present Christ as the principle of creation and through this to explain the origin of the world.

At the same time his true Godhead was required. In the course of this doctrine of salvation the question as to how the divine and the human are united in Christ could not in the long run be left unanswered. 27 Irenaeus himself did not yet raise this specific question, still less did he answer it in a comprehensive way. 28 He, however, was not yet moved to provide a theological clarification of faith in the mystery of God's incarnation with regard to the unity of God and man. Still, he enriched theological terminology in this context.

An evaluation which seeks to do justice to this defective soteriology and its theological background must take into account the fact that the theological reasoning of the apologists is no longer completely accessible. It must also take into consideration that the New Testament writings, the canon of which was not yet fixed, did not possess for them their later theological authority. The writings of Paul and John which are fundamental for later trinitarian as well as christological doctrine had not yet gained full acceptance in Christian communities of that time.
