In this theological exposition on the concept of the Logos in the writings of Philo of Alexandria, Réville offers a probing piece of research. Beginning with the historical milieu of Philo’s time, he moves on to his main focus, playing out what the doctrine of the Logos is. Starting with the world of God, he explores the necessity for an intermediary between the divine and human. The general notion of the Logos is examined, as well as the role of the Logos in the universe itself, according to Philo. The macrocosmic presence of the Logos is the next subject under review. How the Logos relates to humanity in the microcosmic world is discussed by Réville before his exploration of how the Logos relates to the divine. This study concludes with Réville’s thoughts on the significance of the doctrine of the Logos. Theologians who wish to know turn-of-the-century ideas concerning the Logos will find this irresistible reading.

Jean Réville (1854-1908) was a French theologian. He studied at Geneva, Berlin, and Heidelberg before becoming a professor of patristics at the Sorbonne.
