9780881413274: Orthodox Readings of Augustine

This book not only presents Eastern Orthodox readings of the great Latin theologian, but also demonstrates the very nature of theological consensus in ecumenical dialogue, from a referential starting point of the ancient and great Fathers. This collection exemplifies how, once, the Latin and Byzantine churches, from a deep communion of the faith that transcended linguistic, cultural and intellectual differences, sang from the same page a harmonious song of the beauty of Christ. Contributors are: Lewis Ayres, John Behr, David Bradshaw, Brian E. Daley, George E. Demacopoulos, Elizabeth Fisher, Reinhard Flogaus, Carol Harrison, David Bentley Hart, Joseph T. Lienhard, Andrew Louth, Jean-Luc Marion, Aristotle Papanikolaou, and David Tracy

Review:

The engagement of the Latin and Byzantine theological traditions of old formed the strongest pillar of the Oecumenical faith. It is a delight to see it set up straight again in this current and lively collection of essays. --John McGuckin, Columbia University

This is a magnificent contribution to the current trends in patristic reception- history, and no less a boon to ecumenical understanding. --Sarah Coakley, University of Cambridge

This is an ambitious and rewarding volume. And singular! These original and learned essays explore little known aspects of Eastern Christian thought and offer fresh insight into the reception and appraisal of Augustine in the East in medieval times and today, as a unique contribution to contemporary theological scholarship. --Robert Louis Wilken, University of Virginia
