9780971950542: The One and the Many: Studies on God, Man, the Church, and the World Today

This volume offers a collection of Zizioulas articles which have appeared mostly in English, and which present his trinianatarian doctrine of God, as well as his theological account of the Church as the place in which freedom and communion are actualized. The title, The One and the Many, suggests the idea of a profound relationship that exists between the Persons in the Holy Trinity, between Christ and the Church, between one Catholic Church and many catholic Churches. On each of these levels of communion, each one is called to receive from one another and indeed to receive one another. And while this is understandable at the Triadological and Christological levels, it raises all sorts of fundamental ecclesiological questions, since the highest point of unity in this context is both the mutual ecclesial-eucharistic recognition and agreement on doctrine and canonical-eccelesiological organization.The book has the Preface written by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich, and an extensive and valuable Introduction (pp. xi-xxi) written by Paul Mc Partlan. Part one contains Zizioulas STUDIES IN TRIADOLOGY (Trinitarian theology): The Doctrine of God the Trinity Today (pp. 3-16: The need for a fresh study; The question of God s being in relation to the world; The problem of God s being in Himself; The place of Trinitarian theology in Ecclesiology; Conclusion).

This parts ends with an article One Single Source: An Orthodox Response to the Clarification on the Filioque (pp. 41-45). Part Two: STUDIES IN ECCLESIOLOGY: The Church as Communion (pp. 49-60: Introduction; Koinonia as a theological concept; The Church as koinonia ; Conclusion). Ecclesiological Presuppositions of the Holy Eucharist (pp. 61-74: Historical background; The Eucharist makes the Church and the Church constitutes the Eucharist; Conclusions; Our ecumenical situation today).

About the Author:

His Excellency the Most Reverend John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon is a modern theologian and Metropolitan of Pergamon, in the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. He was born in Greece, January 10, 1931. He began his studies at the University of Thessaloniki, but received his undergraduate degree in theology from the University of Athens in 1955, where he also later received a degree of Doctor of Theology. Metropolitan John s education included a period of study under the Eastern Orthodox theologian Father Georges Florovsky at Harvard Divinity School. He received his M.T.S. at Harvard in 1956 and was a Fellow at Dumbarton Oaks Center for Byzantine Studies. He received a doctorate in theology from the University of Athens in 1965. His doctoral thesis on the bishop in the early Church was recently published in English as Eucharist, Bishop, Church: The Unity of the Church in the Divine Eucharist and the Bishop During the First Three Centuries. Somewhat later, he studied in Chicago, and taught theology at the University of Edinburgh for a period, before becoming Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Glasgow, where he held a personal chair in systematic theology for some fourteen years. In addition, he went on to be Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva, King s College London, and the Gregorian University, Rome. He was also a part-time professor at the University of Thessaloniki. He was consecrated as a bishop on June 22, 1986, and named Metropolitan of Pergamon. He has represented the Ecumenical Patriarchate on international Church bodies for many years. Metropolitan John is a member of the committees for dialogue with the Roman Catholic Church, and with the Anglican Church, and was Secretary of Faith and Order at the World Council of Churches in Geneva, where he gradually came to be recognized as one of the most influential Orthodox theologians of our times. His ecumenical involvement has led him to publish a number of articles and studies in various periodicals. Some of his books are L Etre ecclesial (Paris: Labor et Fides, 1981), Being as Communion: Studies in Personhood and the Church (Crestwood, NY: St. Vladimir s Seminary Press, 1985), Communion and Otherness (2006), Lectures in Christian Dogmatics (2008). John Zizioulas is widely recognized as the most significant Orthodox theologian of the last half century and an acclaimed advocate of a true ecumenism, based on the faith and theology of the early Church. From his in-depth knowledge of the intellectual resources of the Church, Zizioulas has argued that the Church Fathers represent a profound account of freedom and community, which presents a radical challenge to modern accounts of the person. Zizioulas uses the work of the Fathers to make an important distinction between the person, who is defined by communion, and the individual, who defines himself in isolation from others, and who sees community as a threat to his freedom. Zizioulas argues that God is the origin of freedom and community, and that the Christian Church is the place in which the person and freedom come into being. This volume offers a collection of Zizioulas articles which have appeared mostly in English, and which present his trinitarian doctrine of God, as well as his theological account of the Church as the place in which freedom and communion are actualized.

Descrizione libro Western American Diocese, Sebastian Press August 2010, 2010. Paper Back. Condizione libro: New. Here is that rare anthology whose unifying theme--the one and the many--permeates every chapter, each thought. Whether he is discussing the Eucharist, episcopal primacy, Gnosticism, or proselytism, Zizioulas grounds his vision decisively in the Trinity: one and three, the very mystery of communion and relationship defines his ecclesiology and extends to every aspect of Christian life. Most of the 32 papers collected here respond directly to ecumenical conversations in which this esteemed Orthodox theologian has participated for many decades. Zizioulas articulates his views with clarity and candor, upholding the position of the Orthodox Church as the 'one,' the Una Sancta, while insisting on her responsibility, as a profoundly 'relational entity,' to speak to the 'many.' 'It is no longer enough to preserve our Tradition,' Zizioulas asserts in his final essay, 'The Orthodox Church in the Third Millennium.' 'We must engage in its interpretation in light of today's and tomorrow's existential concerns. Orthodox theology should not fear dialogue with anyone.It is the only way to assert its uniqueness, its importance, its indispensability.' Zizioulas demonstrates on every page why such an assertion is not only necessary but how it can become, indeed, Orthodoxy's 'particular gift to the world in the 21st century.'.
