Dumitru Staniloae. Tradition and Modernity in Theology – available online

I have received news that the book Dumitru Staniloae. Tradition and Modernity in Theology, edited by Dr. Lucian Turcescu, is available now online for free. You may download it HERE.

Three Romanian Evangelical authors, Emil Bartos, Danut Manastireanu and Silviu Rogobete, have contributed to this volume.

Through his theology, the late Romanian theologian Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993) continues to be one of the most important Orthodox thinkers of modern times. A comprehensive analysis of his thought, Dumitru Staniloae: Tradition and Modernity in Theology is a timely assessment of his theology scheduled to appear not long after the publication of his major works in several western languages. For the first time, articles on three main topics of Staniloae’s theology are collected in one volume examining his thought in a comparative framework alongside other modern theologians. The book will be appreciated not only by scholars interested in retrieving the patristic roots of modern theology, but also by students of ecclesiology and ecumenism, as well as those seeking to find out how a major Orthodox thinker addresses modern issues. The contributions are signed by Maciej Bielawski, Andrew Louth, Gheorghe Dragulin, Lucian Turcescu, Ronald Roberson, Danut Manastireanu, Marc-Antoine Costa de Beauregard, Silviu Eugen Rogobete, Emil Bartos, and Lidia Staniloae. The varied religious backgrounds of the contributors, most of whom read the language in which Staniloae wrote, provide a balanced ecumenical assessment of his theology. Written in an accessible language, this volume will also make a good reader for students taking courses on the theology and history of the Eastern Orthodox Church and ecumenism, an area where teaching resources are scarce.
