St. Maximus ... logoi
« on: February 19, 2011, 12:54:22 PM »
so im writing a paper for seminary on the cosmology of St. Maximus, and I am confused about the thought-wills and the logoi. some sources say they are the same thing, and some sources make a distinction between the two. but if there is a distinction i cant understand what it is. any Maximian scholars out there? thanks.

what's "thought-wills"?

I always considered "logoi" as blueprints of our being.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
