A presentation of the Theology of Archimandrite (Saint) Sophrony, including:

  • The hypostatic principle and its realization in human life
  • The kenosis of the Lord and the salvation of man
  • From the psychological to the ontological level
  • Prayer as the fulfillment of creation

"The central axis of his (Fr. Sophrony's) living theology is his deep investigation into the meaning of the personal or hypostatic principle in Divine Being and in humanity, and his description of certain features of humanity which determine man's final realization as far as this is possible within the limits of earthly life. This theology is presented as an account of man's personal experience of divine light. St. Silouan and his disciple and biographer Archimandrite Sophrony deserve a place in the history of the Church. The present study aims to establish the spiritual experience of these two men as a subject worthy of consideration in the academic circles of contemporary theology." From the introduction by Archimandrite Zacharias
