 The Lineaments of the Macarian Vision

Show Summary Details


An outline of the sources, nature, and content of the Macarian writings. The chapter distinguishes and describes some of the main themes treated in this unsystematic, but fundamentally coherent, corpus: the mutual indwelling of man and God, cosmology and anthropology, Fall and spiritual struggle, prayer and the sacraments. It also emphasises the profoundly Trinitarian character of the Macarian spiritual vision.
