Judges' and contributors' comments

Cally Hammond: This one got in after I and other judges queried the selections of material from the early centuries of Christianity. I thought that this was the best representation of fine theological reasoning combined, using intellectual rigour, with intense devotion and spiritual insight. It expresses the full understanding of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity as classically understood later; explores the ‘how’ of human salvation; and admits the limitations of human expression of divine essence. Its composition (or rather delivery) just before the Council of Constantinople in 381 delivered the Niceno-Constantinopolitan creed points to its importance and influence in Christian self-understanding.
