Multiple Incarnations

OD Crisp

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


In the recent literature Brian Hebblethwaite has argued against St Thomas Aquinas that multiple incarnations are metaphysically impossible. In this paper I show that Hebblethwaite is mistaken and that multiple incarnations are metaphysically possible, although there may be good reasons why God ensures there is only one actual incarnation.
