Theosis, or the principle of divine-human communion, sparks the theological imagination of Orthodox Christians and has been historically important to questions of political theology.

In The Mystical as Political: Democracy and Non-Radical Orthodoxy, Aristotle Papanikolaou argues that a political theology grounded in the principle of divine-human communion must be one that unequivocally endorses a political community that is democratic in a way that structures itself around the modern liberal principles of freedom of religion, the protection of human rights, and church-state separation.

Papanikolaou hopes to forge a non-radical Orthodox political theology that extends beyond a reflexive opposition to the West and a nostalgic return to a Byzantine-like unified political-religious culture. His exploration is prompted by two trends: His overtly theological approach shows that the basic principles of liberal democracy are not tied exclusively to the language and categories of Enlightenment philosophy and, so, are not inherently secular.

Trinity, Apophaticism and Divine-Human Communion more. The central task of Being With God is an analysis of the relation between apophaticism, trinitarian theology, and divine-human communion through a critical comparison of the trinitarian theologies of the Eastern Orthodox theologians The central task of Being With God is an analysis of the relation between apophaticism, trinitarian theology, and divine-human communion through a critical comparison of the trinitarian theologies of the Eastern Orthodox theologians Vladimir Lossky —58 and John Zizioulas —arguably two of the most influential Orthodox theologians of the past century.

Aristotle Papanikolaou

These two theologians identify as the heart and center of all theological discourse the realism of divine-human communion, which is often understood in terms of the familiar Orthodox papnaikolaou of theosis, or divinization. The Incarnation, according to Lossky and Zizioulas, is the event of a real divine-human communion that is made accessible to all; God has become human so that all may participate fully in the divine life. Papanikolaou maintains, however, that Lossky and Zizioulas hold profoundly different views on how to conceptualize God as the Trinity.

Their key difference is over the use of apophaticism in theology in general papnaikolaou especially the relation of apophaticism to the doctrine of the Trinity. For Lossky, apophaticism is the central precondition for a trinitarian theology; for Zizioulas, apophaticism has a much more restricted role in theological discourse, and the God experienced in the eucharist is not the God beyond being but the immanent life of the trinitarian God.


Papanikolaou provides readers with a richer understanding of contemporary Orthodox theology through his analysis of the consensus and debate between two leading Orthodox theologians.

From Sophia to Personhood: It will demonstrate how much of contemporary Orthodox theology on It will demonstrate how much of contemporary Orthodox theology on the Trinity, although projecting itself as a neo-Patristic synthesis, is, in large part, a footnote to Aristitle. I will also argue how the development of a contemporary Orthodox theology of personhood is both consistent with patristic theology and a result of hermeneutical and existential contextuality.

C ontemporary Orthodox theology of the person is probably one of the most ecumenically recognizable aspects of contemporary Orthodox theology, and, recently, one of the most controversial aspects, especially among the Orthodox themselves, but also among patristic scholars from across the confessional divide.

It is indisputable that the one who placed a theology of person at the center of contemporary Orthodox theology, together with the essence-energies distinction, is Vladimir Lossky. This is attributable to several factors, not least of which is the book, The Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church, which is a mini-systematic theology. He wrote this book in in French and it was translated into English in The English translation of this book is significant because it became one of the very few books on Orthodox theology in the English language that existed at the time, and it had a profound influence on shaping the ecumenical perception of Orthodox theology.

The categories of East and West are always fluid, always multiform, and almost always projections of an imagined difference. And, papanioolaou, the ppanikolaou of the West has played an important role in the Orthodox imagination for its And, yet, the category of the West has played an important role in the Orthodox imagination for its self-identity.

It has functioned as an absolute marker of difference from what is considered to be the essence of Orthodoxy, and, thus, ironically, has become a constitutive aspect of the modern Orthodox self. We will attempt to unravel how the East has constructed the West and, through the use of critical theory, suggest some possible ways to make sense of why the West is so important to the Papanlkolaou.
