Format: Paperback
One of the greatest ecclesiastical historians of the twentieth century, John Meyendorff held the underlying conviction throughout his career that "there was and is an uninterrupted, consistent, and continuous holy tradition of faith held by the church throughout the centuries." Identifying that core of apostolic tradition, however, is seldom easy. Written shortly after his death, these essays in memory of Fr. John present the attempt to further our understanding and interaction with the great tradition as expressed in both east and west. Some of the best scholars from east and west contribute to the 18 sections dealing with ecumenism, history, theology, ecclesiology and biblical studies. Very well done!
Essays include a touching remembrance of Fr. Meyendorff by his friend close Jaroslav Pelikan, Taft's look at the role of the epiclesis in light of Lex Orandi, Norris revisits the meaning of Chalcedon, Dulles exams the Church as communion, and Wilken looks at grace and the knowledge of God. This is a book not to be missed.
Requiescat in pace, memory eternal!
