9789607120045: The Greek East and the Latin West

The division of Christendom into the Greek East and the Latin West has its origins far back in history but its consequences still affect Europe, and thus Western Civilization. Sherrard's study seeks to indicate both the fundamental character and some of the consequences of this division. He points especially to the underlying metaphysical bases of Greek Christian thought, and contrasts them with those of the Latin West.

Book Description Denise Harvey (Publisher), 2017. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 4th Edition. A NEW REPRINT OF THIS CLASSIC BOOK, THIS PRESENT EDITION HAS BEEN COMPLETELY RE-TYPESET AND AMENDED. The division of Christendom into the Greek East and the Latin West has its origins far back in history but its consequences still affect Europe and thus western civilization. Philip Sherrard’s study seeks to indicate both the fundamental character and some of the consequences of this division. He points especially to the underlying metaphysical bases of Greek Christian thought, and contrasts them with those of the Latin West; he argues persuasively that the philosophical and even theological differences, remote as they might seem from practical affairs, are symptoms of a deep divergence of outlook that has profoundly affected the history of ideas and hence the whole course of European history. He exemplifies this by contrasting the relationships between the spiritual and temporal powers during the Byzantine period with those assumed by the medieval Papacy, by an analysis of the ‘Platonic reaction’ of such figures as Gemistos Plethon, and by an exposition of the intellectual background of the Renaissance, the Reformation, and, finally, of the modern western world. As he writes in his foreword to this second edition: ‘Not only have we now turned virtually the whole living and breathing earth into a vast, smouldering junkyard and put in doubt its very survival, but the mentality—materialist, collectivist and international—most actively committed to the total eradication of what little is left of that local self-sufficiency in matters spiritual, cultural and economic without which there can be no civilization worthy of the name, has now succeeded in deploying itself, in an organized and official form, on an unprecedented scale. The existence of such an organization as the European Economic Community . . . is sufficient evidence for this.’ ‘ . . . Philip Sherrard is truly a prophet for our present age, a messenger whose winged words are addressed not so much to the twentieth century in which he lived as to the twenty-first century that is now unfolding.’ Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia.

Book Description Harvey (Denise) & Co ,Greece February 1995, 1995. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Two ways of seeing the world within the Christian tradition-two minds-run like sometimes distinct, sometimes intertwining threads through this survey of Western civilization. Sherrard writes here as an historian of ideas who takes theology seriously; the course of events is never merely a matter of historical accident, but is fundamentally formed by the theological impact of diverging Greek and Latin metaphysical convictions. The connections Sherrard posits between intellectual trends and historical events are occasionally tendentious, but more often provocative and fertile, leading the reader to look at historical developments in new ways. His analyses of scholasticism, the intellectual roots of the Renaissance, and the inroads of secularism in modern Greek history are especially valuable. 212 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 93209
