Maximus the Confessor: Selected Writings translation by George C. Berthold introduction by Jaroslav Pelikan
  • Description
  • Reviews

The perfect mind is the one that through genuine faith knows in supreme ignorance the supremely unknowable, and in gazing on the universe of his handiwork has received from God comprehensive knowledge of his Providence and judgment in it, as far as allowable to men.

St. Maximus the Confessor

Maximus is called the Confessor because of his sufferings and labors for the true faith. During the seventh century when the monothelite heresy (belief that Christ had only one will-a divine one) plagued the Church, Maximus eloquently demonstrated that Christ had both human and divine natures. This is a translation of four spiritual treatises of Maximus the Confessor plus an account of his trial. It includes The Four Hundred Chapters of Love, Commentary on the Lord's Prayer, Chapters on Knowledge, The Church's Mystagogy (explains the symbolism of various parts of the Liturgy), and The Trial of Maximus.

Softbound. 240 pp.
