Hugh Nicholson

Fordham University Press

Hugh Nicholson’s essay first highlights the salient points of the essays by Bidlack and Moyaert. The second part of the essay takes as its point of departure the contextual factors for the development of doctrine highlighted in each essay, to raise the disquieting possibility that polemic is integral to the Christological concepts that sustain Christian identity. It highlights the role of polemic, especially anti-Jewish polemic, at key moments in the development of Christological doctrine, as well as the tendency toward what Nicholson calls “Christological one-upmanship.” Christological development exemplifies a feature of religion more generally, the constitutive role of inter-communal polemic in the development of religious belief.

Keywords:   Christian anti-Judaism, Christological one-upmanship, Christology, Daoism, Huahu jing, post-Holocaust (Christian) theology
