The Macarian writings are one of the principal fountainheads of the Christian ascetic and mystical tradition. This book re-evaluates many of the factors which have hindered a due appreciation of the nature of their theological and spiritual legacy. It offers the first attempt at a broad-based analysis of the character of that influence, thereby standing not only as an exploration of the writings themselves but also of the nature of the Christian tradition as a whole.

Papers presented at the Fifteenth International Conference on Patristic Studies held in Oxford 2007 (see also Studia Patristica 44, 45, 47, 48 and 49). The successive sets of Studia Patristica contain papers delivered at the International Conferences on Patristic Studies, which meet for a week once every four years in Oxford; they are held under the aegis of the Theology Faculty of the University. Members of these conferences come from all over the world and most offer papers. These range over the whole field, both East and West, from the second century to a section on the Nachleben of the Fathers. The majority are short papers dealing with some small and manageable point; they raise and sometimes resolve questions about the authenticity of documents, dates of events, and such like, and some unveil new texts. The smaller number of longer papers put such matters into context and indicate wider trends. The whole reflects the state of Patristic scholarship and demonstrates the vigour and popularity of the subject.

The very idea that the foremost Roman Catholic theologian of the middle ages, Thomas Aquinas, might have been hugely popular in the last days of the Orthodox Byzantine Empire may strike some as fanciful. But popular he was - both among those in favour of and opposed to re-union between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches. This book is the first attempt to explore the long history of Orthodox fascination with Aquinas. The reader of this book will learn muchnot only about Orthodox theology but also about Thomas Aquinas himself.

"Founder of the Sora Hermitage, advocate of scete monasticism, editor of the Slavic translations of the Lives of early and medieval Greek, Egyptian, and Levantine ascetics, and writer on hesychasm (stillness), Nil (1433/34-1508) shines as Russia's 'great elder'. As the only medieval native spiritual teacher, he was studied by later Russian monks and nuns along with his models and distant mentors, the monastic Fathers of the Christian East." "Working from original sources, David Goldfrank allows Nil to speak in his own voice and, uniquely, identifies his slavic sources. No longer idealized and isolated from mainstream Orthodoxy as a figure uniquely tolerant for his age, Nil is shown to have been in the thick of a typically brutal medieval struggle for the defense of his church and the purity of his faith, as well as being a gifted teacher and writer."--BOOK JACKET.

The spiritual counsels of Mark, a fifth century monk in Asia Minor, are equally rich in theological insight and historical interest. His writings were deeply valued by Byzantine ascetics, were circulated during the Reformation, and were read by Lutheran divines and Roman theologians. The general level of interest in his works during the first half of the second millennium is eloquently reported in a fourteenth century manuscript, as a slogan often repeated by monastics and ascetics: ⿿Sell everything and buy Mark.⿿ His words on taking responsibility for one another out of love, his practical advice on the need for repentance, and his strident emphasis on the kind of unity evident in Christ directly relate to modern Christians and may provide a useful point of departure for ecumenical dialogue.

A complete reassessment of the Messalian controversy of the 4th and 5th centuries AD, showing that it was not a question of heresy, but rather of misperceived differences of culture and spiritualism. Stewart reconstructs the history of the controversy from its beginnings, and considers in depth the spiritual vocabulary which lies at the root of it.

What don't Christians believe? Is Jesus really divine? Is Jesus really human? Can God suffer? Can people be saved by their own efforts? The early church puzzled over these questions, ruling in some beliefs and ruling out others. Heresies and How to Avoid Them explains the principal ancient heresies and shows why contemporary Christians still need to know about them. These famous detours in Christian believing seemed plausible and attractive to many people in the past, and most can still be found in modern-day guises. By learning what it is that Christians don't believe--and why--believers today can gain a deeper, truer understanding of their faith. --! From back cover.
