Reseña del editor:

St. John of Damascus (ca. 675-749) is generally regarded as the last great figure of Greek Patrology. Outstandingly important for his support of images in the Iconoclastic Controversy, this priest-monk of St. Sabbas near Jerusalem is known also for his treatment of Christian morality and asceticism (the Sacred Parallels), for a small but precious group of powerful sermons, and even for verse contributions to the Greek liturgy. His reputation rests mainly, however, on one of his latest writings, the Fount of Wisdom. This relatively brief work is called by the late Fr. Chase, its new translator, ""the first real Summa Theologica""; and its most significant section was in fact known, in Latin translation, to Peter Lombard and St. Thomas Aquinas. The first part of the Fount of Wisdom, ""Philosophical Chapters"" (""Dialectica""), goes back to Aristotle mainly and, through Maximus the Confessor, to Plato. Epiphanius is the chief source of Part Two, with its exposition of 103 heresies. The third and most important section of the work, ""On the Orthodox Faith,"" is a comprehensive presentation of the teaching of the Greek Fathers on the main doctrines of Christianity, especially the Trinity, Creation, and the Incarnation. But what emerges is not a compilation but rather a synthesis, marked by originality in the mode of treatment and by a remarkable clarity of expression. In all three of its parts the Damascene's Fount of Wisdom is ""an indispensable aid to the study of the Greek Christian tradition.""

Descripción Catholic Univ of Amer Pr April 2000, 2000. Paper Back. Condición: New. The importance of these texts in the history of Christian theology cannot be overestimated. Here in one volume (the only translation in its entirety in English) is St. John's monumental Fount of Knowledge, comprised of 'Philosophical Chapters,' 'On Heresies,' and 'An Exact Exposition of The Orthodox Faith.' This last section is a synthesis of the whole Eastern Christian tradition, a unique summa of the mind and heart of the early Greek Fathers. Aside from a wholehearted recommendation of this book, two points commend themselves to us as imperative to pass on to you. First, of the 103 heresies exposited in On Heresies, the 101st is that of 'the Ishmaelites,' making it therefore one of the first recorded Christian responses to Islam. (Remember that St. John was living and working in Muslim lands, experiencing Islam in its infancy.) Second, the introduction, written originally in 1958, refers to The Fount of Knowledge as 'the last work of any theological importance to appear in the East.' To remedy this gross misstatement, we could refer to any works of Photius, Symeon the New Theologian, Theodore the Studite, Gregory Palamas, Alexei Khomiakov, and a host of twentieth-century worthies. We boldly insist that St. John did not 'close' the Patristic Age. He laid a solid foundation for defending the Faith in all following generations. 426 pp. Nº de ref. del artículo: 148576
