Description:

"This volume comprises the third volume of sermons by Father Alexander Schmemann, on a topic which was particularly close to his heart. The Virgin Mary, usually referred to as "Theotokos" among the Orthodox, figures prominently in Byzantine liturgical worship. There is no single service which does not contain one or more references to her. Yet Eastern Orthodox theological manuals have little to say about Mary beyond repeating the primarily Christological titles affirmed by the Third Ecumenical Council (Ephesus, 431) - "Theotokos," "Birthgiver of God." It is to the Eastern liturgical tradition, then, that one must turn for a more developed Mariology. Eastern hymnographers, drawing both on Scripture, on early Christian apocrypha, as well as on a rich theological tradition, went far beyond the laconic definition of Ephesus. In these brief pages, Father Schmemann draws on all these to explain Mariology to a modern audience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
