Tertullian of Carthage (160-220 A.D.) seems reluctant to predicate angelic properties of the Lord Jesus Christ. Edgar G. Foster suggests that one reason for Tertullian's aversion to angelic or angelomorphic Christology is his hermeneutical approach to Psalm 8:5.
Those working in patristic studies, theology, and the history of biblical exegesis will no doubt consider Angelomorphic Christology and the Exegesis of Psalm 8:5 in Tertullian's Adversus Praxean a tour de force. It advances a theory concerning Tertullian's Christology that is both fresh and insightful.
