Sep 01, Drew rated it it was amazing Shelves: Who knew that I would anything about Christianity that would ever make any sense feologia me? In the present essay I will attempt to put two thinkers face to face — a postmetaphysical philosopher, Jean-Luc Marion, and an Orthodox neo-patristic theologian, Vladimir Lossky — in order to find an answer to the question whether the relation between dogmata and apophaticism comes under metaphysics or post-metaphysics, and starting from here, to determine if a simultaneously very contemporary and very traditional postmetaphysical theology is possible.

I had read this book several years ago when I first had learned about the Orthodox Dasarit and was trying teollogia find out more about. Dense, difficult, and occasionally overwhelming, Lossky’s Mystical Theology is one of the twentieth century’s most important works of Eastern Orthodox theology. It’s clear that Lossky wants to “work on” the reader, and I guess that’s fine; however, I would prefer not to get worked on like this.

The icon is a phenomenon that makes itself known only through distance and filiation Sep 24, Ce rated it really liked it. View all 3 comments. This is a book that changed my life and made me want to be a Christian after years of immersing myself in other ‘Eastern’ Religions. He doesn’t really talk about icons and such.


He doesn’t give a description of what the Easter vigil looks like or why they use incense I still don’t know. We cannot think we are theological people if we avoid spirituality.

Other than that, listen to this http: This phenomenon in excess is able to describe how the religious phenomenon is manifested the theophany for instance9. Readdressing the issue of religion in a postmetaphysical context has its advantages and disadvantages. Under these circumstances of having to keep the distance and not idolise God, the only discourse that remains possible, as Jean-Luc Marion himself assumes it, is the discourse of praise, the prayer God of the Church is not God of metaphysics or onto-theology, but an apophatic God of supra-conceptual experience.

How can I read a book on line? Oct 17, Marc rated it really liked it Shelves: Apr 04, Brian Cubbage rated it really liked it. Idol, icon and distance For Marion, the idol is a form of presence of the divine or of God without the necessary distance11, a dense and opaque presence which encloses just as the metaphysical concept of God does, even when it articulates traits of His magnificence. Vladimir’s Seminary Press first published Help Center Find new research papers in: But the extent to which this truth remains only the theoretical expression of an objectified and dead phenomenon, set once and for all, and, perhaps, used in the fight for inter-confessional or political domination, the truth following the reduction to faith loses its quality of being a truth and the role of guiding the believer towards the incomprehensible God.


How it happened was such- I was actually reading a book on Islamic Gnostic Mysticism, which while profoundly critical of Christianity, had a little note by either Lossky or Von Balthasar. As far as spiritual faith, beyond rationale religion, to me the Eastern Church is the most indepth-spiritually within the Christian communion.

It is without doubt the best book on Orthodox spirituality and theology in the English language — the classic and the standard. May 30, Stephen Hayes rated it liked it Recommends it for: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

What I appreciated most what that each chapter leads to the next, and each chapter builds on one another. I had to really concentrate on what he was actually saying.

Lossky, happily, is as familiar with Western thought as he is with Eastern, and his polemic to the West is quite gentle. I liked it, and losssky it interesting, but I found its rhetorical style off-putting. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

An interesting look at the Eastern Christian Church.
