Chalcedon Re-examined by Fr. V.C. Samuel
« on: May 18, 2005, 09:10:02 AM »
This briliant masterpiece is now available in electronic format thanks to the efforts of Peter Farrington. For everything you want to know about Chalcedon, and everything you don't, this is the book to get: objective, well-balanced, well grounded and reasoned arguments made, and viewpoints posited.

Enjoy,

Peace.

I would give my left arm (which is basically useless) and my first-born (don't want kids anyway) for a copy of that book.

The Council of Chalcedon and the Armenian Church is also supposed to be very good.

There is a new book out now that is like 700+ pages by a Coptic priest Fr. Shenouda Maher, Christology and the Council of Chalcedon

I'm going to take a guess that probably every theological and historical argument against Chalcedon made would be in there in amazing detail

It's incredibly dense. If you have an unusual historical interest I'd recommend it, otherwise not.
