The Niceneum 325 under the Synodal Sovereignty of Emperor Constantine the Great in the Mirror of the Controversy between Erik Peterson and Carl Schmitt over the Political Theology of Eusebius of Caesarea
(FKTh 2023-3, p. 161–178)
Previous bibliography on the Carl Schmitt - Erik Peterson controversy has largely overlooked the fact that the Council of Nicaea in 325 with its Christology was the focus of this dispute. This study aims to reconstruct Schmitt’s and Peterson’s controversial perspectives on the Homoousios theologoumenon, taking into account recent research results from theology and historiography.
