  1. Metropolitan Amfilohije’s Views on St Gregory Palamas and Orthodoxy: A Return to Palamism.Constantinos Athanasopoulos - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:14-24.
    In what follows, I examine the views of Metropolitan Amfilohije’s views on St Gregory Palamas and Orthodoxy, primarily focusing on his PhD thesis, which was defended at the University of Athens, Faculty of Theology in 1973, and published in Thessaloniki in the same year. I claim that his views there not only show him defending Palamas, but also highlight the need for a strengthening of Palamism in Greece and abroad. Some of the problems, which he identified in 1973, exist in (...)

  2. Sources for the Study of Early Ecumenical Views of Amfilohije Radović: Justin Popović.Vladimir Cvetković - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:25-50.
    The paper aims to analyze the early ecumenical views of Amfilohije Radović with reference to the influence exerted on him by his spiritual father Justin Popović. This investigation is important because Radović’s ecumenical engagement is often a matter of controversy, which results in conflicting views. Sources for studying Radović’s early ecumenical views are: his correspondence with Justin Popović on ecumenism, his engagement in editing and publishing Popović’s book Orthodox Church and Ecumenism, and finally, his article written as a report from (...)

  3. Paul's Idea of the "New Man" and Transhumanism.Dušan Krcunović - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:62-69.
    By setting the relationship between human and divine reality in a whole new way, Christian anthropology has provided an authoritative framework for understanding and valuing the dynamics of human life as moving “from the old to the new man”, according to the famous phrase of the apostle Paul. Other great European humanistic traditions with their ideas of man and visions of his progress can be placed in the critical perspective of this Pauline anthropological formula. One of those traditions that relatively (...)

  4. The Authority of Canons at the Birth and Rebirth of the Russian Patriarchate: St Meletius Pigas at the Council of Constantinople in 1593 and St Hilarion Troitsky at the Council of Moscow in 1917.Enrico Morini - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:51-61.
    Two Councils dealt with the birth and rebirth of the Moscow Patriarchate: the general Council of Constantinople of 1593 and the local Council of Moscow in 1917. In the course of the discussions two speakers based their arguments in favor of the Russian Patriarchate on the authority of canons: they were the Patriarch of Alexandria Meletius Pigas and the archimandrite, later bishop and martyr, Hilarion Troitsky. Despite the common recourse to the most ancient and authoritative canonical sources, the perspectives of (...)

  5. Valuing Goods: The Development of Commensurability in Archaic Greece.Mark Peacock - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:89-104.
    To be monetised, a society requires a unit which measures the values of a wide range of goods. Being thus measurable, the values of goods are mutually commensurable, a point which Aristotle theorised in the Nicomachean Ethics. But whereas Aristotle gives rise to the impression that the stipulation of a currency unit suffices to make goods commensurable, societies themselves must undergo a process of commensurabilisation whereby people become habituated to valuing goods in terms of a unit of value. This essay (...)

  6. Language as a Means of Communication with God.Peter Žeňuch & Svetlana Šašerina - 2021 - AKROPOLIS: Journal of Hellenic Studies 5:70-85.
    The communicative function of the language of translation, as can be seen from the examples of God's names contained in the oldest Slavic translations of a biblical nature, is an important component of understanding a whole range of liturgical texts and part of the Christian cultural identity of the believer. The need to translate biblical and liturgical texts therefore stems from the needs of believers. One desires to understand as best and as accurately as possible not only the text of (...)
