Product Description

In the Orthodox East, the faithful profess their belief "in the Holy Spirit, who proceeds from the Father"; in the West, however, they add "and the Son" (in Latin, filioque).

Publisher's Description

The Filioque: History of a Doctrinal Controversy is the first complete English language history of the filioque written in over a century. Beginning with the biblical texts and ending with recent agreements on the place and meaning of the filioque, this book traces the history of the doctrine and the controversy that has surrounded it. From the Greek and Latin fathers, the ninth-century debates, and the Councils of Lyons and Ferrara-Florence, to the twentieth- and twenty-first century-theologians and dialogues that have come closer than ever to resolving this contentious issue, A. Edward Siecienski explores the strange and fascinating history behind one of the greatest ecumenical rifts in Christendom.

Author Bio


A. Edward Siecienski is Associate Professor of Religion and Pappas Professor of Byzantine Culture and Religion at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

Editorial Reviews


"This is a hugely accessible, up-to-date survey of the field free of the fog of polemic and bias."--Aristeides Papadakis, Catholic Historical Review


"A tour de force...Siecienski writes gracefully and is remarkably free of the bias that plagues most of the literature devoted to the filioque. We are in his debt."--Robert M. Haddad, Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies


"Because of the clarity and brevity of its methodology and textual analysis, The Filioque is destined to become a classic on the subject for decades to come."--Bradley Nassif, Church History


" I enjoyed reading this excellent scholarly tome and recommend it to all interested in the Christian ecumenical movement. One of its several merits is that it reads well and holds one's attention undiminished -- notwithstanding its scholarly nature."--Demetrios Constantelos, Journal of Ecumenical Studies


"Siecienski has made a significant contribution to a key issue in both historical theology and present day ecumenical relationships...This is an excellent volume which I shall be recommending to all my students."--Scott Harrower, Journal of Theological Studies


"He gives not merely a review of the evidence from one of the longest and most complicated disputes in Christian history, but an explicit theological interpretation that will illuminate and challenge a spectrum of interested readers."--Andrew Hofer, O.P., The Thomist
