Resources on the Filioque
« on: October 27, 2007, 05:12:35 AM »
Has anyone got some good book recommendations for Orthodox apologetics on the filioque issue? I've already got St. Photius' Mystagogy.

New Rome has spoken.  The case is closed. ;D

On a serious note, you probably would do better with the Scholastics to present the arguments but not attatch St. Photius' name to it.  They seem to shut off without knowing why at the mere mention of his name.

Btw is the Mystagogy and the acts, etc. of Constantinople IV (the real one, 879) on line?  The sites I had are down now.

I'm afraid that now that they admit that the term filioque can't be translated into the original Greek without a result that even they deem heretical, they will have to get their mind straight on that issue.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Below are a few texts that (in varying degrees) touch upon the issue of the filioque:


A. Edward Siecienski. The Use of Maximus the Confessor's Writing on the Filioque at the Council of Ferrara-Florence (1438–1439). Ann Arbor, Michigan: UMI Dissertation Services, 2005.

Aristeides Papadakis. Crisis in Byzantium: The Filioque Controversy in the Patriarchate of Gregory II of Cyprus (1283–1289). New York: Fordham University Press, 1983.

Aristeides Papadakis. The Christian East and the Rise of the Papacy. Crestwood, NY: St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, 1994, pp. 232-238 and 379-408.

Richard Haugh. Photius and the Carolingians: The Trinitarian Controversy. Belmont, MA: Nordland Publishing Company, 1975.

David Bradshaw. Aristotle East and West: Metaphysics and the Division of Christendom. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004, pp. 214–220.




I have also posted a brief essay that I wrote on the filioque at my own website, click the link below if you wish to peruse it:

The Filioque Controversy

"All that the Father has belongs likewise to the Son, except Causality."
St. Gregory Nazianzen

"We should believe that divine grace is present in the icon of Christ and that it communicates sanctification to those who draw near with faith."
St. Theodore Studite

Hello,

Not an Orthodox source, but if you study the issue, you should know the other side's argument. Here is the Catholic Church's Clarification on the Filioque:

http://www.catholicculture.org/library/view.cfm?recnum=1176

And here is an Orthodox response to that clarification:

http://www.orthodoxresearchinstitute.org/articles/dogmatics/john_zizioulas_single_source.htm
Through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, may Jesus Christ bless you abundantly.

Pray that we may be one, as Christ and His Father are one. (John 17:20ff)

One Orthodox point of view regarding the issue of the filioque that simply cannot be passed up is to be found in The Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church by Vladimir Lossky.
