To what extent creation implies the Creator’s nearness to His works? What kind of ‘paradise’ man abandoned with the ‘transgression’? Which is the ‘prime... More > matter’ of beings? What is the meaning for man of the spatiotemporal structure and change as opposed to the simplicity of the divine nature? What does the origin of beings ‘out of nothing’ mean? How is the divine will related to space and time? What is the meaning of the end of times? What does creation of man ‘according to the image’ mean? How is the soul related to Creation? How does Monotheism agree with trinitarianism and what is the real value of trinitarianism for the existence of God and man? Raising questions related with these issues, the current study of the cosmology of Gregory of Nyssa and Meister Eckhart highlights also the importance of theoretical similarities and differences between the two great Christian Mystics.    Official page: www.elpenor.org< Less
Orthodoxy & Catholicism: A Comparison By Dave Armstrong
eBook (ePub): $2.99
It has been my strong desire for some time now to revise my book in order to emphasize ecumenism and unity proportionately a lot more than in the first (2004) edition. I'm much more interested in... More > finding common ground. I've also learned a thing or two about Orthodoxy over the past decade. I wanted this volume to be able to read by Orthodox and also Eastern Catholics, without having seizures or going into apoplectic fits (caused by my ignorance or overly polemical or biased writing). I exaggerate, of course, but perhaps not by much! Toward that end I have enlisted a very qualified Eastern Catholic friend to contribute significant portions to the revised edition: Fr. Deacon Daniel G. Dozier. The revision remains an apologetic for Catholicism and respectful critique of Orthodoxy, but now it also includes friendly ecumenical discussion and dialogue: feedback and input from the Eastern theological perspective. The overall tone, tenor, and goal is considerably different. Unity is stressed as much as apologetics.< Less

The Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom was probably the Divine Liturgy (or "Mass") used originally by the School of Antioch and was, therefore, most likely developed from West Syrian liturgical rites. In Constantinople, it was refined and beautified under John's guidance as Patriarch of Constantinople (398–404). Having become the liturgical form of the Church of Holy Wisdom, Hagia Sophia, it became over time the normative liturgical form in the churches within the Byzantine Empire.
