This Bampton Lecture series of 1958 provides an illuminating exposition on the Ascension, which as J.G. Davies asserts, has been a greatly neglected article of the creed.
Davies thoroughly examines the Biblical material before following the history of the doctrine and its development from the period of the ante-Nicean Church, through the Carolingian Renaissance to the reforming monastic movements of the eleventh and twelfth centuries. He also gives a systematic commentary on the Ascension doctrine as it may reasonably be held and taught today.
This is an important theological work in the doctrine of the Ascension that deals with the origin and significance of the Apostles Creed.
