Abstract

Unlike the Dominican side of the Scholastic debates - and unlike most patristic literature - Duns Scotus' theology says that Christ's incarnation would have taken place even if humanity had not sinned. Creation was made to receive the incarnation, which God intended as the occasion of Christ's greater glory. Duns Scotus presents us with a picture of the incarnation that is focused more on love than on sacrifice.
