Communion and otherness : further studies in personhood and the church by Jean Zizioulas( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back cover: Communion and otherness: how can these be reconciled? In this wide-ranging study, the distinguished Orthodox theologian, Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon, seeks to answer that question. In his celebrated book, Being as Communion (1985), he emphasized the importance of communion for life and for unity. In this important companion volume he now explores the complementary fact that communion is the basis for true otherness and identity
Being as communion : studies in personhood and the church by Jean Zizioulas( Book )

34 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the context of a complete theology, which includes extended consideration of the major theological topics the Trinity, Christology, eschatology, ministry, and sacrament, but above all the Eucharist, Zizioulas propounds a fresh understanding, based on the early Fathers and the Orthodox tradition, of the concept of person, and so of the Church itself. His consideration of the local church as 'catholic' in the literal sense, and the need to understand the universal Church not as a superstructure but as the communion of all Churches, provides the program for the ecclesiology of the future
The eucharistic communion and the world by Jean Zizioulas( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theology of John Zizioulas presents a beautiful vision of the Church as Eucharistic communion, in which human persons both are gathered into Jesus Christ and are sent back into the world. In his previous books, Zizioulas focused on the way this communion is related to the communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which calls us to understand being as communion and provides the only foundation for otherness and identity. With its sustained attention directly to the Eucharistic communion, this volume provides the context for those discussions. Zizioulas here explores the biblical dimensions
Eucharist, bishop, church : the unity of the church in the divine Eucharist and the bishop during the first three centuries by Jean Zizioulas( Book )

19 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims to define the relationship connecting the unity of the Church with the Eucharist and the Bishop as it was understood in the consciousness of the early Church. Written as the author's doctoral dissertation in 1965 for the University of Athens, the issues raised in this work are as relevant today as when Zizioulas first presented them. Zizioulas presents an episcopocentric structure of the Church as normative, constituted in the essential role of the bishop as president of the Divine Liturgy and the eucharistic community. This assertion, still novel when Zizioulas first described it, is widely accepted and forms the core concept of "eucharistic ecclesiology." Neverless, Eucharist, Bishop, Church continues to challenge many contemporary notions about the relationship of bishop and presbyter, parish and diocese, and local and universal church. --from back cover

L'Église et ses institutions by Jean Zizioulas( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le métropolite Jean (Zizioulas) de Pergame est un des théologiens orthodoxes contemporains les plus connus et les plus influents. Son œuvre a profondément renouvelé non seulement l'ecclésiologie de l'Église orthodoxe mais aussi le dialogue de celle-ci avec les autres Églises. Le métropolite Jean est en effet un des principaux acteurs des dialogues théologiques menés par l'Église orthodoxe. Il copréside notamment la Commission internationale pour le dialogue théologique entre l'Église catholique et l'Église orthodoxe dans son ensemble. L'incarnation de la pensée du métropolite dans un contexte concret lui confère sa force et son originalité. Les grandes intuitions du métropolite Jean de Pergame se sont essentiellement développées dans des contributions à des colloques, des conférences, des ouvrages collectifs aujourd'hui difficilement accessibles. C'est pourquoi il a semblé utile de rassembler ses principales interventions en français depuis une quarantaine d'années et de les organiser selon les thématiques fondamentales de sa pensée : christologie, pneumatologie et institutions ecclésiales, l'Église comme communion, conciliarité et primauté, Église et eucharistie, les ministères dans l'Église, théologie et œcuménisme, eschatologie. Des entretiens permettent de replacer dans leur contexte les grandes intuitions du théologien. Dans un langage toujours accessible, le métropolite aborde les questions clés de l'ecclésiologie. Le présent ouvrage permettra au lecteur de se familiariser avec les problématiques ecclésiologiques contemporaines dans une perspective profondément œcuménique"--

Lo creado como eucaristía : aproximación teológica al problema de la ecología by Jean Zizioulas( )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La preocupación ecológica, es decir, la necesidad de cuidar todo lo creado, no es solo una exigencia ética para toda persona, sino que, para los cristianos, es bastante más que esto. Para los cristianos es una consecuencia directa e ineludible de la fe en Dios, lo que da a esta preocupación ecológica su fundamento más básico. La teología ortodoxa, tan centrada en la liturgia como culto y alabanza a Dios de todo lo creado, ofrece una buena perspectiva para reflexionar este tema decisivo para nuestra civilización. Y eso es lo que este libro nos quiere presentar. Ioannis Zizioulas (Katafigió, Grecia, 1931) fue ordenado obispo en 1986, y actualmente es metropolita de Pérgamo y miembro del Sínodo permanente del Patriarcado ecuménico. Ha participado desde sus inicios en el diálogo teológico entre la Iglesia católica romana y la Iglesia ortodoxa. Se dice que ha tenido una importante influencia en la encíclica del papa Francisco Laudato sí
The Eucharist makes the church : Henri de Lubac and John Zizioulas in dialogue by Paul McPartlan( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time, Henri de Lubac (Roman Catholic) and John Zizioulas (Greek Orthodox), two of the most important theologians of modern times, are here brought together. In a rare spirit of true collaboration, they are seen as partners in a single theological enterprise." "De Lubac's insight that "the Eucharist makes the Church" and that the nature of the church is communion is, for both men, the means of a return to the Fathers of the undivided Church of the first millennium, and the key to an ecclesiology which overcomes the exaggerated individualism of modern times. It is shown that the exciting Eastern theologian from a younger generation can take up the baton from the pioneering Western master, and, by means of a more fully developed pneumatology and eschatology, advance and integrate de Lubac's results. Zizioulas consolidates de Lubac's achievement in revealing the Eucharist as the heart of the Church and the practical focus of a lived Christian faith." "This original and wide-ranging study treats many of the deepest theological issues in modern ecumenism, including our understanding of the Trinity and the nature of primacy, in a vigorous and accessible fashion. It will surely advance the development of a fuller Christian perspective."--BOOK JACKET
