Wider than heaven : eighth-century homilies on the Mother of God( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary, the Virgin of Nazareth, was chosen by God to conceive and give birth to his only Son, Jesus Christ, as foretold by the Old Testament prophets. At the Third Ecumenical Council (Ephesus A.D. 431) Orthodox bishops proclaimed that the Virgin Mary had contained God himself in her womb and, therefore, should be praised as "Birth-giver of God" for her essential role in the mystery of the Incarnation." "At the Church's recognition of her place in christological doctrine, popular veneration of the Virgin grew and feastdays commemorating her began to be added to the Constantinopolitan Church calendar. The twelve sermons translated in this volume are the work of eighth-century preachers John of Damascus, Germanos of Constantinople, Andrew of Crete, John of Euboea, and Kosmas Vestitor and were likely preached in the course of all-night vigils for the feasts in honor of the Virgin."--Jacket

La foi orthodoxe by John( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in French and Greek, Ancient and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En écrivant vers 730/740 La Foi orthodoxe, Jean Damascène, le dernier des Pères de l'Eglise selon la tradition, ouvrait la voie aux grandes synthèses doctrinales du Moyen Age, tant en Orient qu'en Occident. Son oeuvre, traduite en latin au XIIe siècle, sera beaucoup citée par Thomas d'Aquin dans sa Somme. D'Irénée à Maxime le Confesseur en passant par les Cappadociens et Jean Chrysostome. Jean Damascène a recueilli toute la tradition des premiers siècles chrétiens. Il synthétise cet héritage de l'Antiquité chrétienne pour le transmettre à un Orient désormais dominé par l'islam. Il est lui-même, comme son père et son grand-père, un haut fonctionnaire du califat de Damas, avant de devenir moine et prêtre en Palestine, où il composera son oeuvre théologique
