    Triune Agency, East and West: Uncreated Energies or Created Effects?Adonis Vidu - 2020 - Perichoresis 18 (1):57-75.
    The present paper situates the Western and Eastern models of divine agency within their respective ontological frameworks. I show how the Western conception of divine agency as the production of ‘created effects’ is rooted in a particular understanding of the relationship between transcendence and immanence, but also in a trinitarian ontology which understands God as pure actuality. On the other hand, the Eastern understanding of divine agency through the conceptuality of uncreated energies is similarly rooted in the real distinction between (...)

    Trinitarian Inseparable Operations and the Incarnation.Adonis Vidu - 2016 - Journal of Analytic Theology 4:106-127.

    Lindbeckís Scheme-Content Distinction: A Critique of the Dualism Between Orders of Language.Adonis Vidu - 2004 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 3 (9):110-123.
    There are several tensions present in George Lindbeckís postliberal theology. One of these is between realist intuitions and a non-epistemic account of truth, on the one hand, and a social- constructivist non-realism with regard to theological statements. Theology is relegated to the status of second-order discourse, while first order language comprises the practices, rituals, vocabulary of a religion. I am challenging this intermediary status of religion with the help of Donald Davidsonís critique of the dualism between scheme and content. Since (...)
