  • Nota bene (1)Soteriology: « Cur Deus homo » ( « Why did God become Man ? »), is the title of a treatise on the Christian doctrine of Salvation, called « Soteriology ».  The treatise was written at the end of the 11th c. between 1094 and 1098 by Saint Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury (*Aosta, Italy, ca.1033 – †Canterbury, England, ca.1109). 


  • Nota bene (2) | Etymology:The term « Soteriology » is derived from several Greek words, namely: (1)  Σωτηρία, τῆς Σωτηρίας | Latin: salus, salutis | satisfactio,  satisfactionis, which mean: salvation, redemption, deliverance, liberation, satisfaction [expiation]; (2) τὸ Σωτήριον, τοῦ Σωτήριου | Latin: salus, salutis, which means: the power of salvation, liberation, deliverance, healing; (3)  σωτήρ, τοῦ σωτῆρος | Latin:  salvator, salvatoris | redemptor, redemptorisliberatorliberatoris, which mean: saviour, redeemer, liberator. Soteriology is therefore the Christian doctrine of the original sin, redemption, and t salvation of humanity. The definition of this doctrine is based on 2 New Testament texts: Acts of the Apostles IV, 11, 12, and Ephesians II, 8, 9, 10 •
