About this title


This book presents a thorough study of the life and thought of St Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria (AD 328-373). In recent decades Athanasian studies have enjoyed a revival among scholars. Some praise him; others denounce him: opinions are very often diverse and a confused situation has developed. This book addresses the problem by means of a new key-spirituality.
This study argues that, because of the partial nature of our extant historical sources, it is almost impossible to reconstruct a true picture of Athanasius using the traditional methodology without making subjective presuppositions. To obtain a balanced judgement, it is necessary to examine the saint simultaneously from different viewpoints – his cultural background, theological convictions, ascetic teachings, and personal behaviour. By doing so, the author tries to show that the spirituality expressed in his writings is an important key to a proper understanding of Athanasius. It helps to explain his life and his behaviour in the Arian controversy.
