Vít Hušek: Deification in Jerome

This paper will explore the parallels to the doctrine of deification in Jerome and will focus on the complementary terms he prefers: participation in divine life, grace and its special gifts (in particular virginity), and adoptive sonship. Attention will be also paid to Jerome's adaptation of the themes characteristic of the Western tradition, such as the inequality of divine gifts, the role of human agency, and divine foreknowledge.
