Cyril of Alexandria (d.444) was one of the architects of Christian orthodoxy. Daniel A. Keating presents a comprehensive account of Cyril's narrative of salvation. He offers a corrective to certain readings of Cyril and argues that Cyril presents a balanced picture of our union with Christ. The final chapter compares Cyril with Theodore of Mopsuestia, Augustine, and Leo the Great, in order to examine in brief the relationship between Eastern and Western accounts of salvation.
