Leontius Of Byzantium (485-543) Byzantine monk and theologian who provided a breakthrough of terminology in the 6th-century Christological controversy over the mode of union of Christ's human nature with his divinity. He did so through his introduction of Aristotelian logical categories and Neoplatonic psychology into Christian speculative theology. His work initiated the later intellectual development of Christian theology throughout medieval culture. Brian E. Daley provides translation and commentary on the six theological works associated with the name of Leontius of Byzantium. The critical text and facing-page translation help make these works more accessible than ever before and provide a reliable textual apparatus for furture scholarship of this key writing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Scholars have awaited this long-heralded edition for decades...The significance of these Completed Works is not to be understated: there really is no equal to be found among the monographs on Leontius cited in the bibliography, especially since this is the first complete edition of the Greek in modern times (96). This critical edition opens many new avenues for future scholarship, provides a far more reliable text than one finds in the Patrologia Graeca, and attempts a correction of a number of longstanding assumptions about Leontius...Daley's volume would qualify as anyone's magnum opus, even his own, and posterity will ever be in his debt for this work. * Kevin Clarke, Reading Religion *
