On the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ
by St Maximus the Confessor
translated by Paul M. Blowers and Robert Wilken

On the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ by St Maximus the Confessor translated by Paul M. Blowers and Robert Wilken
  • Description
  • Reviews

The last half of the twentieth century saw the establishment of the reputation of St Maximus the Confessor as the greatest of all Byzantine theologians, with a wholeness of vision that speaks directly to many of our concerns today. Until very recently, however, little of his work has been available in English translation, save for some collections of brief reflections arranged in centuries and a few brief treatises, too easily classified as "spirituality." This volume provides translations from St Maximus, two main collections of theological reflections, his Ambigua (or Difficulties) and his Questions to Thalassius, plus one of his Christological opuscula, hitherto unavailable in English.

"The translations are accompanied by immensely helpful notes, and prefaced by a long, brilliant introduction to the theology of the Confessor. This is the ideal volume from which to learn at first hand the depth and insight of St Maximus' cosmic vision and grasp of the complexities of human nature, as he patiently explores the nature and consequences of the renewal of all things in Christ. Robert Wilken and Paul Blowers have put us all deeply in their debt."— Andrew Louth, Professor of Patristics and Byzantine Studies, University of Durham

On the Cosmic Mystery of Jesus Christ is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.
