Excerpt


The healing ministry of Jesus Christ is a primary task of the Church. Seeking to revitalize this venerable ancient rite, Paul Meyendorff provides a brief historical overview of anointing going back to biblical times. He outlines a theology of sickness and healing, offers pastoral counsel on how it should be practiced and appends a new translation of the rite with an abbreviated version for use in hospitals and homes. A necessary work for the continued care of the sick among us.

Excerpt


Gregory Palamas - monk, archbishop, and eminent theologian - dedicated most of his active life to theological argument, centered on one basic truth: The living God is accessible to personal experience, because He shared His own life with humanity. Palamas wrote nine treatises entitled For The Defense of Those Who Practice Sacred Quietude, considered to be his most important work. Since these treatises are written in three groups of three books each they are often referred to as the Triads. This book contains extensive excerpts from Palamas' famous work that in the words of the book's distinguished editor John Meyendorff, "introduce the reader into the very substance of the religious experience of the Christian East.

Excerpt


The eighth-century document Historia Ecclesiastica of Germanus, Patriarch of Constantinople (715-730), was for centuries the quasi-official explanation of the Divine Liturgy for the Byzantine Christian world. Although "allegorical" in content, its interest lies in its historical value, for it appeared at a time of great flux in the life of the Byzantine Church, at the outbreak of the iconoclastic controversies, a period which marked a strong shift in theology and piety.

The theological significance of this document and its usefulness in understanding the form of the liturgy celebrated in the eighth century is discussed in an extensive introduction by the translator, Paul Meyendorff. The introduction includes an exposition on mystagogical catecheses and the development of an historicizing system of liturgical symbolism.
