Byzantine Theology: Historical Trends and Doctrinal Themes

Front Cover
Mowbrays, 1975 - Byzantine Empire - 243 pages
A synthesis of Byzantine Christian thought, where the reader is guided through its complexities to an understanding of Byzantium: its view of man and his destiny of 'deification'; its ability to transcend the 'Western captivity'; its survival under quite adverse historical circumstances. In the end he may well find himself receptive to the basic positions of Byzantine thought, which have attained, in this time of need for the re-integration of Christianity itself, a surprising contemporary relevance.
