In this unique volume, a new and distinctive perspective on hotly debated issues in science and religion emerges from the unlikely ancient Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition. Alexei Nesteruk reveals how the Orthodox tradition, deeply rooted in Greek Patristic thought, can contribute importantly in a way that the usual Western sources do not. Orthodox thought, he holds, profoundly and helpfully relates the experience of God to our knowledge of the world. His masterful historical introduction to the Orthodox traditions not only surveys key features of its theology but highlights its ontology of participation and communion. From this Nesteruk derives Orthodoxy's unique approach to theological and scientific attribution. Theology identifies the underlying principles (logoi) in scientific affirmations. Nesteruk then applies this methodology to key issues in cosmology: the presence of the divine in creation, the theological meaning of models of creation, the problem of time, and the validity of the anthropic principle, especially as it relates to the emergence of humans and the Incarnation. Nesteruk's unique synthesis is not a valorization of Eastern Orthodox thought so much as an influx of startlingly fresh ideas about the character of science itself and an affirmation of the ultimate religious and theological value of the whole scientific enterprise.

Long before the European Renaissance, while the western world was languishing in what was once called the 'Dark Ages', the Arab world was ablaze with the creativity of its Golden Age. This is the story of how Islamic science, which began in eighth-century Baghdad, enhanced the knowledge acquired from Greece, Mesopotamia, India and China. Through the astrologers, physicians, philosophers, mathematicians and alchemists of the Muslim world, this knowledge influenced western thinkers from Thomas Aquinas and Copernicus and helped inspire the Renaissance and give birth to modern science.

Volume 2 of 2. In this volume, the Masonic fraternity is present with the results of the author's personal observations upon Holy Land and its freemasonry, supplemented by much reading of appropriate books. Coleman endeavored to say what is new, true and useful. Should the reader discredit the oriental theory of Masonic origin upon which Coleman's deductions are based, all the worse for him. In his judgment, the antiquity of Freemasonry is one of its strongest claims to respect, and those who are laboring to disprove that are its enemies. Copiously illustrated.

This extraordinary collection of full-page, full-color icons introduces readers, art appreciators, and historians to the spiritual riches of the Byzantine liturgical tradition. Father Michael Evdokimov, a Russian Orthodox priest living in Paris, has presented an icon for each of the twelve great feasts of the Orthodox Christian liturgical year, as well as for other special moments of prayer. Preceding each icon is a brief commentary explaining its meaning and significance. Furthermore, facing each icon are prayers appropriate for meditation that have been translated by the Monks of New Skete Monastery in upstate New York. In a simple and accessible manner, translator Robert Smith has brought text, prayers, and icons together to show how the beliefs and practices common to Orthodox people everywhere in the world can be appreciated by all.

Following the Great Schism dividing Rome and the Eastern Patriarchates in 1054, the Church of Constantinople split and became the first Orthodox Church. The Ecumenical Patriarchate was founded in 38 A.D. by Andrew, the first-called Apostle and brother of Saint Peter. The Ecumenical Patriarchate continues today, as in the past, to be the spiritual center and beacon of the 250,000,000 member Orthodox Christian Church. It is looked upon as the Mother Church by the Churches of Russia, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Rumania, Georgia and Poland. His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, the 270th successor to the Apostle Andrew, was enthroned on November 2, 1991.

The Word Guild 2008 Canadian Christian Writing Awards winner! "Do they really pray to icons?" "Why do they use incense?" "What do they believe?" To many people, the Orthodox Christian tradition (or Eastern Orthodoxy) seems unfamiliar and mysterious. Yet this tradition is arguably the most faithful representative of early Christianity in existence today and numbers roughly 250 million adherents worldwide. What's more, a steady stream of evangelical Christians has been entering the Orthodox Church in recent decades. Isn't it time we gained a deeper understanding of Orthodoxy? In Light from the Christian East, James Payton gives us just that. With a sympathetic eye and even hand, he ushers readers into the world of Orthodox Christianity--its history, theology and religious practices. In doing so, he clears away the confusion and misunderstandings that often prevent non-Orthodox Christians from fully appreciating the riches of this ancient tradition. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Orthodox Christianity.

"The papers in this book provide a good introduction to the purpose and scope of the PKNT project. The PKNT commentaries function as original and innovative supplements to traditional biblical commentaries." -- Scott Charlesworth, Pacific Adventist University, Review of Biblical Literature Seit 15 Jahren werden die "Papyrologischen Kommentare zum Neuen Testament" (PKNT) vom Osterreichischen Wissenschaftsfonds FWF durch Forschungsprojekte an der Universitat Salzburg gefordert. Aus diesem Anlass fand im Dezember 2009 ein internationales Symposion statt, an dem Papyrologen, Bibelwissenschafter, Klassische Philologen, Anthropologen und Rechtshistoriker aus den USA, aus Kanada, Italien, Deutschland und Osterreich teilnahmen. Im Zentrum der "Papyrologischen Kommentare" stehen Papyri, beschriebene Tonscherben, Holz- und Wachstafelchen aus dem griechisch-romischen Alltag, die die Sprache, die Textsorten, die Themen, die zeitgeschichtliche und soziale Situation biblischer Texte beleuchten. Die in dem von Peter Arzt-Grabner und Christina M. Kreinecker herausgegebenen Band vorgelegten Beitrage widmen sich einzelnen Texten des Alten und Neuen Testaments (Genesis, Johannesevangelium, Paulusbriefe) und behandeln ubergreifende Themen wie die antike Sklaverei, das Hirtenwesen, die Autorschaft und Uberlieferungssgeschichte paulinischer Briefe, das Textilhandwerk, die Ausbildung von Lehrlingen, die Heiligenverehrung, die Ubersetzung der Hebraischen Bibel und die fruhchristliche Liturgie. Since more than 15 years, research projects entitled "Papyrological Commentaries on the New Testament" (PKNT) are sponsored by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. In December 2009 a symposium was held at the University of Salzburg where papyrologists, biblical scholars, scholars of classics, anthropology, and ancient law from the US, from Canada, Italy, Germany, and Austria met to present their papers. The "Papyrological Commentaries" focus on documentary papyri, ostraca, as well as wooden and waxed tablets from Greco-Roman times that illuminate language, genre, topics, and the social and political situation of biblical texts. The papers of this volume edited by Peter Arzt-Grabner and Christina M. Kreinecker deal with specific texts of the Old and New Testament (Genesis, Gospel of John, Pauline Letters) and are concerned with ancient slavery; the world of shepherds, weavers, and apprentices; the tradition and compilation of Pauline letters; the veneration of saints; the translation of the Hebrew Bible; and early Christian liturgy.

1904. A volume in the University of Toronto Studies in Philosophy. This work is presented to the public in the hope that it will throw light on some of the formative elements of Japanese civilization, and lead to a better understanding of Japanese character and life. Armstrong endeavors to give an outline of the history of Japanese Confucianism. The title is given to this book because any intensive study of thought in Japan involves more or less knowledge of Korea, China and India. The schools of Confucianism, which originated in China in the Sung and Ming dynasties, assimilated much from Northern Buddhism which comes from India.
