The 13th-Century Prerequisites of St. Gregory Palamas’ Theology

P. 321-322.
Макаров Д. И.

A new periodization of the thirteenth-century Byzantine theology is proposed. The impact of Gregory Palamas’ thirteenth-century predecessors upon the doctrine of essence and energies in God is analyzed, special attention beinggiven to the increasing role of the notion of interpenetration in Moschambar, Blemmydes, Gregory of Cyprus. In the second part of the paper Hesychast, apocryphal and Aristotelian motives are uncovered in Blemmydes’ treatise OnVirtue and Ascesis (ca.1265–1266).
