Theology in the Russian Diaspora by Aidan Nichols

Book Description

The author at the centre of this study, Russian priest-theologian Nikolai Nikolaevich Afanas'ev, was perhaps the most influential thinker about the Church Russia has produced. In Aidan Nichols's careful evaluation, he emerges as a key figure in the rapprochement of Christian East and West, and most notably of the Orthodox and Catholic churches. Nichols illustrates how Afanas'ev has been influential in two key respects: first of all in his conviction that the Eucharist constitutes the foundation of the whole Church; and secondly in his contribution to an Orthodox understanding of the role of the Roman Church and bishop in the context of a united Church. Afanas'ev's achievements are seen to have continuing relevance in view of the inauguration of the Orthodox-Catholic dialogue at the monastery of St John on Patmos in 1980, and the importance of his thinking in terms of contemporary ecumenism becomes clear. It is to such a reappraisal that this book - concerned as it is with how Russian orthodoxy understands the Church - is devoted, in the hope of an eventual restoration of unity between the Orthodox of all the Russias and the see of Rome.

There is No Rose by Aidan Nichols There is No Rose, Paperback (February 2015)

Mary continues to be a source of theological interest and concern for Catholics and Protestants alike. Working through the biblical, patristic, and medieval sources, the author introduces readers to the robust scriptural and theological bases for the Church's celebration of Mary in its doctrine and liturgy.

Poet as Believer by Aidan Nichols Poet as Believer, Hardback (June 2011)

A comprehensive study of the theological significance of Paul Claudel, a poet frequently cited by literary-minded theologians in Europe and theologically-minded poets (such as von Balthasar, de Lubac and Eliot). It illuminates how Claudel's synthesis of many dimensions remains an important way of practising poetry in the Christian tradition.
