Title

Some Observations on the Theological Method of Faustus Socinus (1539–1604)

Publication Date

Spring 2008

Abstract

The article examines the divergence of Socianism from Reformed and Roman theologies. Having originated from the thoughts of Fausto Socinus, Socianism rejects ecumenical doctrines of Trinity and the two natures in Christ, eternal punishment for the lost, satisfaction of Christ for sin on the cross, the immortality of soul and traditional attributes of God, such as being omnipresent and ability to see future events. Given the above theological views, Socialism represents a reconstruction and reinvention of the entire Christian edifice.
