Saint Gregory Palamas as a Hagiorite

translated by Esther Williams

Saint Gregory Palamas as a Hagiorite by Metropolitan Hierotheos Vlachos of Nafpaktos  translated by Esther Williams
  • Description
  • Reviews

The life and the teaching of St. Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki, will set out the limits and the great difference which exists between the abstract and impersonal life of Eastern religions and the Orthodox Tradition as well as between Barlaam's scholasticism, moralism and the Orthodox spiritual life. And this is important precisely because tendencies to both the impersonal way of life (Eastern religions) and rationalism/scholasticism together with moralism (Western religions) prevail in the West today—a fact that creates a deep despair and much speculation.

A reading of Saint Gregory Palamas as a Hagiorite will show the particular features of Byzantium, which used to be called Romania (Roman Empire) as it is preserved and kept even in our days on the Holy Mountain of Mount Athos. Nowdays many people admire the art which developed in the Byzantium (Roman Empire) but in the final analysis this art was the outcome of a holy life, it was the fruit of a way of life, as we can see in the life and the teaching of St. Gregory Palamas.
