9780881412949: On The Human Condition: St Basil the Great (St. Vladimir's Seminary Press

This informative and enjoyable little book serves as a valuable introduction to major themes in Greek Patristic anthropology-the image of God in the human being, the Fall of humanity, and the cause of evil-and brings together the main writings of St Basil the Great, fourth-century archbishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia, on these subjects. St Basil deftly addresses the questions posed by the human condition with characteristic clarity and sobriety. He formulates a balance between humility grounded in our creation from the earth and confidence based on the dignity of being created according to God's image. In addition to two discourses on the creation of humanity, this volume includes Letter 233 to Amphilochius of Iconium, St Basil's spiritual son-a succinct and pointed discussion regarding the functions of the human mind, the activity for which God created it, and how it can be used for good, evil, or morally neutral purposes. This letter complements the discussion of emotions in St Basil's Homily against Anger, also included in this volume. Finally, the book includes excerpts from St Basil's fatherly instructions to his ascetic communities, commonly known as the Long Rules or the Great Asceticon, which emphasize the communal dimension of human identity: humans are naturally interrelated, social, and interdependent.

Descripción St. Vladimirs Seminary Press May 2005, 2005. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. The Acts says of the early Christians that, 'the whole group were of one heart and soul.and nobody said that anything he had was his own, but to them all things were common.' Possessions are transient, but the Faith is the inheritance of every generation, that which we still have 'in common' with the Church of the first centuries. Consequently, we carefully select and (gently) insist on the study of patristic sources. Through our Fathers and Mothers we are able join our lives to those early Christians, to be of one heart and soul with them. St. Basil the Great is a recognized bearer of such sacred Tradition. This valuable collection of his works 'brings together the major themes in Greek Patristic anthropology -the image of God in the human being, the Fall from Paradise, and the human condition in the present life and in the age to come.' In fact, there isn't a more compact and readable primer of St. Basil's genius as Father of the Church, guide of monks and master rhetorician. St. Basil 'addresses the questions posed by the human condition with characteristic clarity, balance and sobriety,' so that, along with him, we can possess the ageless mind of the Church. Included here are St. Basil's 'On the Origin of Humanity;' 'Homily Explaining that God is Not the Cause of Evil;' 'Homily against Anger;' and selections from the 'Long Rules' -along with other writings and discourses. 128 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 126494
