Abstract [en]

The paper explores some original ideas of Anastasius Sinaita about human beings as imago Dei. He developed these ideas in the context of polemics against various anti- Chalcedonian and Monothelite groups. Speaking about imago Dei, Anastasius dif- ferentiated between the image of Christ, image of God, and image of the Trinity. All three sorts of image are reflected in the humankind in different ways. Thus, Anastasius presented the first human family, which consisted of Adam, Eve, and their son, as the reflection of the Father, the Holy Spirit, and the Son. Human soul, for him, is the re- flection of the divine essence. In the framework of this imagery, Anastasius argued that the human activity and volition are images of God’s energeia and thelema. Therefore, in Christ they coexisted without confusion or conflation into a single activity and will.
