Catehezele Sfântului Simeon Noul Teolog – diagnosticarea unei probleme ecleziale

  • Ciprian Ionuț Joița

Abstract

Saint Simeon The New Theologian is known in the Orthodox theology and beyond by his insistence and clarity with which he wishes to debate and analyse problems of the spiritual Christian life, often overlooked by the previous theologians or perhaps entrusted by them to a discretion of alloing each person to respond only in front of its own conscience. In his striking words, St. Simeon first unveils the serious problems of assuming, living and understanding the biblical teachings in the Constantinopolitan society of his time, problems that were the triggering factors of his spiritual discourse of that period, but which reflect so many human weaknesses present among believers all the time, up to our time. By this the article tries to emphasize the importance of his teachings for current Orthdox Theology.
