Abstract

Drinking from the Byzantine Tradition: John Wesley's Synthetic Understanding of
Anthropology, Soteriology, and Teleology.
By Robert Steven Reneau
During his life and the centuries after his death, many scholars see the theology of
John Wesley as attempting to bridge a gap between Roman Catholicism and
Protestantism. However, since Albert C. Outler mentioned in a footnote of the bottom his
book titled John Wesley in 1964 that Wesley also pulled from the early Byzantine
tradition, scholars are now attempting to place Wesley's work in a new light that attempts
to bridge the paradigms of the Western church and Eastern church. This work shows how
Wesley forged a synthetic understanding of anthroplogy, soteriology, and teleology that
is heavily based in Western notions, but also drawing from multiple early Greek voices
like Clement of Alexandrius, Macarius/Gregory of Nyssa, and Chrysostom.
