List has been alphabetized. Could be organized by prevalence in modern thought, or chronologically (by earliest distinct mention, i.e. Ransom/Recapitulation from Irenaeus, Christus Victor from Chrysostom, Athanasius or the Cappadocians, Satisfaction from Anselm [as Augustine isn't clear in his mention of it, he's mainly Christus Victor still], etc.). Also, divinization/theosis is an understanding of salvation among Eastern Orthodox, but is not a theory of the atonement - it is a theory of salvation or soteriology, held together with the Orthodox theory of the atonement, which is Christus Victor.

Another template question[edit]

Ditto this template:

I have a problem with this template, as not all Arminians subscribe to a governmental view of atonement. The Free Will Baptists, for instance, and Arminius himself believed in the penal satisfaction view. See, again: Pinson, J. Matthew (2003). "Will the Real Arminius Please Stand Up? A Study of the Theology of Jacobus Arminius in Light of His Interpreters" (PDF). Integrity: A Journal of Christian Thought. 2: 121–139.  TuckerResearch TuckerResearch (talk) 06:39, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
