From time to time I check the SermonAudio website to see if there is anything worth listening to. This time I stumbled across some lectures by Peter Leithart on literature that look interesting. Steve Schlissel has also added some new lectures.

  1. Hey Al! I saw your comment on Zizoulas from a few days okay, and I wanted to comment on that. In Rethinking Gregory of Nyssa, David Bently Hart has some great suggestions about the similarities between so-called “Eastern, personalist” Trinitarianism against so-called “Western, essentialist” Triniatrianism. Hart calls the writings of people like Lossky (in the Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church) and Zizoulas (in Being as Communion) examples of hyper “Photianism”, of course referring to Photius the Great.

    Anyway the article is called, “The Mirror of the Infinite: Gregory of Nyssa on the Vestigia Trinitatis” or something to that nature. I happened to enjoy Sarah Coakley’s article in the same journal/book. Take care, man.

    Thanks David. I am still thinking these things over at the moment. On reflection, I think that I might perhaps have been too harsh on Zizioulas in my post and made too much of a distinction between the type of position that I want to hold and the type of position that he holds. I think that there are some important advantages to his position.
