Book Description

The seven documents in this book, which appear for the first time in an English translation from Greek and Latin, constitute a unique contemporary witness to the stalwart opposition of the monk Maximus the Confessor to seventh-century imperial edicts enforcing adherence to the doctrines of monoenergism and monothelitism.

Product Description


... historians and theologians will be given invaluable help by this publication ... this is a publication which amply repays intensive study ... indispensable. (Jahrbuch Der Österreichischen Byzantinistik)

The texts have not previously been easily available and most are translated here into English for the first time ... The volume comes with an excellent introductory section that admirably and accessibly sets the documents in context. The translation is precise and accurate ... this is a most valuable work on which its authors should be warmly congratulated. (Journal of Ecclesiastical History)

It would be difficult to overestimate the immense value for student and scholar alike of this new introduction to, and translation of, sources dominating the final stages in the life of St Maxiums the Confessor. (Sobornost (incorporating Eastern Churches Review))

... this book fills a real gap for readers who hitherto have only had access to English translations of Maximus' spiritual and theological writings, allowing them to locate his theological stance within the context of a turbulent personal and political history. (Sobornost (incorporating Eastern Churches Review))

... an impressive addition to Professor Chadwick's series Oxford Early Christian Texts, and a timely contribution to the growing range of research tools which afford better access to the world of this irrepressible saint. (Sobornost (incorporating Eastern Churches Review))
