Patristic Witness of Georges Florovsky : Essential Theological Writings (Hardcover)
about this item
This book is a collection of major articles and texts by Georges Florovsky (1893-1979), an important 20th century theologian, historian, ecumenist and patristic scholar. It includes representative and widely influential but now largely inaccessible writings, some newly translated, with explanatory and bibliographical notes, covering all periods of his career and divided into four major thematic sections: 1) creation and incarnation; 2) the nature of theology; 3) ecclesiology and ecumenism; 4) scripture, worship and eschatology.
A foreword by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware presents both personal accounts of contacts with Georges Florovsky and key elements of Florovsky's theological vision, in the context of the continuing relevance of his work. The introduction by Brandon Gallaher and Paul Ladouceur gives an overview of Florovsky's work. It focuses on his Christology, ecclesiology, his approach to tradition (especially the Fathers of the Church), Christian philosophy, ecumenism and mission, with reflections on 'Florovsky after Florovsky.'
The book includes explanatory and bibliographical notes, translation of patristic citations, and an index.
