    Anastasius of Sinai and His Participation in the Monothelite Controversy2019In: Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, ISSN 0013-9513, Vol. 95, no 3, p. 505-527Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Anastasius of Sinai was one of the most creative theologians in the period when Late Antiquity was transforming to the Middle Ages. His passionate rhetoric targeted the Christological unorthodoxies of his time, primarily Monenergism and Monothelitism. In his polemics against these doctrines, Anastasius creatively elaborated on the arguments of his predecessors. He developed a complex, and sometimes surprising, taxonomy of Christ’s activities and volitions. This taxonomy included mixed human-divine, pure divine, and pure human energeiai and wills, which, to Anastasius, proved duality of Jesus Christ.

    “COVID Theology”, or the “Significant Storm” of the Coronavirus Pandemic2021In: STATE, RELIGION AND CHURCH in Russia and Worldwide, E-ISSN 2073-7211, Vol. 39, no 1, p. 58-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines various theological aspects of the perception of the coronavirus pandemic in the global Orthodoxy in general and the Russian Orthodox Church in particular. Among other aspects, it touches upon issues pertinent to the practices of celebration and distribution of the Eucharist under the conditions of hygienic restrictions. It also explores Christological arguments in support of each practice. The article proposes some particular interpretations of both phenomenology and etiology of the so‑called Covid dissidence. It argues that artificial polarization on the ideological grounds between the so‑called “liberals” and “conservatives” is one of the reasons why many bishops, priests, and laypeople in the Russian Orthodox Church mistrust the quarantine measures.

    Abstract [en]

    The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has affected in nuanced ways variousreligious niches and subcultures. This article explores some reactions to thepandemic as they have been developed and articulated in the Russian OrthodoxChurch. These reactions are diverse and often not public. On the upper levelof the church’s leadership, the official standpoint of the Russian hierarchy isusually coherent with the official policies of the Russian state. On the lowerlevels, lay persons, priests, and even bishops often disobey the official line andpropagate opposition to the anti-COVID-19 measures.

    Abstract [en]

    Can a compilation from the past be creative? Does the notion of tradition contradict the idea of innovation? The case of a Syrian theologian, who lived in the Arabic caliphate when Antiquity turned to the Middle Ages, whose name was John of Damascus, demonstrates that the answer to both questions can be positive, contrary to the common wisdom. The article explores the concepts of Tradition with capital T, traditions with lower case t, and traditionalism, through the prism of the writings of John. It argues that the best illustration to what tradition was for John, is not the famous »Black square« by Kizimir Malevich, but the Farbstudie Quadrate by Wassily Kandinsky.

    Eastern Christianity and Meditation2019In: The Oxford handbook of meditation / [ed] Miguel Farias, David Brazier, and Mansur Lalljee, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2019Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Eastern Orthodox Christianity has developed a wide variety of theories and practices of meditation. Among these, this chapter covers the contemplation of sins, the recitation of the Jesus prayer, hesychasm, and the contemplation of Divine Light. This latter form of meditation, where God’s uncreated Light is revealed to the individual, is particularly important in the Eastern Christian tradition, as it is linked to theosis, the human capacity to seek and reach divinization. This is not only important as an individual goal but also a key theological notion in Eastern Christianity. The chapter ends by considering the present interest in meditation practices within this tradition.

    For the Life of the World and Orthodox Political Theology2022In: Theology Today, ISSN 0040-5736, E-ISSN 2044-2556, Vol. 78, no 4, p. 347-356Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the document For the Life of the World: Toward a Social Ethos of the Orthodox Church (FLW) in the contexts that had instigated its promulgation. It maps this document in the coordinates of the Orthodox political theology during the long twentieth century. FLW corresponds to a line in “the theology of the 1960s,” which advocated for liberal democracy and against anti-Westernism. The article argues that FLW fulfills the unaccomplished mission of the Panorthodox council in producing a comprehensive Orthodox social doctrine. It compares FLW with the social corpus adopted by the Russian Orthodox Church during the 2000s.

    Imago Dei, imago Trinitatis, and imago Christi according to Anastasius Sinaita2021In: Imago Dei. Forscher aus dem Osten und Westen Europas an den Quellen des gemeinsamen Glaubens / [ed] Theresia Hainthaler, Franz Mali, Gregor Emmenegger, and Alexey Morozov, Innsbruck: Tyrolia , 2021, p. 395-402Chapter in book (Other academic)
    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.

    Nation-Building Versus Nationalism: Difficult Dilemmas for the Church2020In: Icoana Credintei, ISSN 2501-3386, Vol. 6, no 11, p. 5-16Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The article explores the phenomenon of nationalism in general and its Eastern Christian nuances in particular. It describes two major theories of nationalism: modernist and primordial. It also distinguishes between two stages of nationalism: emancipatory and oppressive. The former is healthier than the latter. The article focuses on the Orthodox editions of nationalism, which seemingly coheres with the traditional structure of local churches. In the Orthodox world, national particularity combined with ecclesial locality, can be either ethnic or civilizational. In the former case, it enhances a homogeneous national identity of the Balkan style. The latter case is an Orthodox neo-imperialism, which is incompatible with nation-building on the basis of one ethnicity. Their incompatibility often leads to conflicts and even wars.

    Patristics and Sociolinguistics2019In: Scrinium, ISSN 1817-7530, E-ISSN 1817-7565, Scrinium, ISSN 1817-7530, Vol. Advanced Articles, p. 1-10Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper suggests a new hermeneutical take on receptive patristics. Receptive patristics means here the ways in which patristic texts are perceived in the community of patristic scholars and in ecclesiastical communities. The perceptions of the patristic materials that these two kinds of communities demonstrate are not always convergent. Their divergence can be explained on the basis of the distinction between normative linguistics and sociolinguistics. Ecclesiastical communities tend to treat the language of the Fathers and Mothers of the church in coherence with the way in which the proponents of normative linguistics treat the phenomenon of language. Patristic scholars, in contrast, usually treat them along the line of sociolinguistics. The approach to the language, which is applied by sociolinguistics, if adopted by ecclesiastical communities, could lead to a better understanding between them. It could foster the ecumenical rapprochement between confessional traditions, especially if they are based on patristic identities, such as in the case of Byzantine and Oriental churches. The academic method of sociolinguistics, thus, can be applied to the ecumenical studies and can positively contribute to practical ecumenism.

    Abstract [en]

    The war in Ukraine that began in February 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and escalated in February2022 to the extent unseen in Europe since the World War II, cannot be adequately comprehended without taking into consideration its religious dimension. To better understand political developments in Russia during last decade, which culminated in the war against Ukraine, one can be helped by some concepts elaborated upon in the sociology of religion. One of them is ‘civil religion’, understood as a ‘myth’ that forms the self-awareness of a nation. It can be found in many nations, including Russian. This paper, drawing on arguments from contemporary sociologists of religion, attempts at a case study of the Russian civil religion, which was forged through the symphonic collaboration between the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church, specifically between Vladimir Putin and the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill (Gundjaev)

    The war in Ukraine that began in February 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and escalated in February 2022 to the extent unseen in Europe since the World War II, cannot be adequately comprehended without taking into consideration its religious dimension. This dimension was correctly identified by the patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill as “metaphysical.” This paper explores some aspects of the metaphysics of the Russo-Ukrainian war. It also tries to explain how and why the Russian Orthodox Church has contributed to it.

    Severus of Antioch as Theologian and Ideologist: Towards His More Ecumenical Evaluation2022In: Religious Studies and Theology, ISSN 0829-2922, E-ISSN 1747-5414, Vol. 41, no 1, p. 5-23Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the figure and theological legacy of Severus of Antioch, a founding father of the Oriental theological tradition. It delves into logical categories, which helped him rationalize Christ’s composition. The study focuses on the categories of common and particular natures, properties, and activities. Severus was engaged in polemics on many fronts: against real and imagined “Nestorianism,” Pope Leo, the council of Chalcedon, neo-Chalcedonians, and opponents from his own anti-Chalcedonian party. Some of his motives for such polemics were theological, and his ideological conservatism underpinned others. Severus seems to be one of the causes of the first great schism in the history of Christianity. Yet many of his own fights and fights against him were against shadows because he, in fact, often believed in the same things as those who fought him believed. His figure can be seen not only as divisive but as containing a potential for ecumenical reconciliation. The study concludes with suggestions about how Severan theological points and policies could contribute to the ongoing dialogue with the Oriental churches.

    Abstract [en]

    Though officially atheist, the Soviet Union’s metaphysics, morals, and liturgics were in many ways a simulacrum of the Christianity it had attempted to abolish. In this light the liquidation of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church has many hallmarks of heretics being anathematized and forcibly converted to a new ‘orthodoxy’. Thus the Soviet Union, in common with Italian and German fascism of the same period, was a clear example of what the Hegelian political philosopher Moses Hess has called ‘political religion’, replete with cultic figures whose relics (e.g., Lenin) were venerated on certain feast days and whose writings became canonical texts of holy writ.
