Proceedings of the Symposium on St. Maximus the Confessor, Belgrade, October 18-21, 2012

In the historical pantheon of great Christian teachers and thinkers and spiritual masters, St. Maximus the Confessor is not as widely known to the general reader as such luminaries as St. Augustine or St. Thomas Aquinas. The publication of this book is a great and lasting achievement that will be a standard reference work on St. Maximus the Confessor for the next generation. Thirty studies have been gathered in the present volume that bring to light new evidence, new readings of texts, or new interpretive paradigms, by which the relation between Christianity in antiquity and in the twenty-first century can be profitably explored.
The symposium drew thirty of the most eminent scholars in patristics, historical and systematic theology, Byzantine studies, philosophy, literature and related fields to produce a “theological bouquet” of 30 studies on various aspects of the thought of St. Maximus.The book brings together Demetrios Bathrellos, Paul Blowers, David Bradshaw, Adam Cooper, Brian Daley, Paul Gavrilyuk, Atanasije Jevtić, Joshua Lollar, Andrew Louth, John Panteleimon Manoussakis, Maximos Constas, Pascal Mueller-Jourdan, George Parsenios, Christos Yannaras, John Zizioulas and many other thinkers.
