MITROPOLITUL ANTIM IVIREANUL ŞI ÎNVĂŢĂTURA SA DESPRE CEI ADORMIŢI. CONSIDERAŢII ESHATOLOGICE ŞI EXEGETICE ASUPRA OMILIILOR FUNEBRE
In this research we aim to approach and analyze the teaching of Metropolitan’s of Wallachia, Antim Ivireanul (1650-1716), about those who are asleep. His teaching is exposed in the four funeral homilies, found in his Didaches: „Word of teaching at the funeral of the glorified man”, „Word of teaching again of the glorification of the man”, „Word of teaching over the dead man” and „Teaching for the memorial service”. In this endeavor we will resort to an exegetic analysis of the texts, highlighting his theological reflections upon eschatology and the state of souls after death. The theology of the Metropolitan Antim Ivireanul accurately expresses the teaching of the Ortodox Church, left to us by our Lord Jesus Christ and preached by the Holy Apostles and their descendants.
Keywords: Antim Ivireanul, Didaches, life, death, funeral, memorial service, heaven, hell, redemption, doom, canonization.
