 1) WHY did Athanasius object to the use of the term homoiousios in describing the relationship of Christ to God the Father?  How does this relate to his doctrine of theosis?

 2) HOW does the attitude of Clement of Alexandria towards classical philosophy differ from that of Tertullian?  What are the implications of this for Christian systematic theology and spiritual theology?

 3) COMPARE and contrast either :

a) the eucharistic theology; or

b) the doctrine of theosis

          in any two patristic authors we have studied
