By Bishop Atanasije (Jevtić)
This volume presents the period from the Council of Chalcedon (451) until St. Photius and his disciple, Cyril, and Methodius. It offers a brief history of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Ecumenical Councils and their decisions. The great Justinian I and Corpus Areopagiticum are explored extensively together with the post-Chalcedonian theologians (known as Neo-Chalcedonians: two Leontii) and Patriarchs of Constantinopole. Further, the Fathers of Holy Land and Sinai are surveyed with two leading theologians, St. Sophronius of Jerusalem and Maximus the Confessor. The theology of the icon is presented through the teachings of St. John Damascene, Theodore Stoudite. The book concludes with St. Photius and his disciple, Cyril and Methodius, together with Church hymnographers and Isak the Syrian.
