Palamas, Archbishop of Thessalonica in the middle of the fourteenth century, is the outstanding figure of later Byzantine theology, a writer who may well be compared with the greatest theologians of the medieval West. This book is the first full study of his life and work to be available in English. When this book was published in France in 1959, it was at once hailed as a major contribution to the understanding of Eastern Christianity; and not only of Eastern Christianity, for the thought of Palamas, with its vivid biblical quality, has a surprising relvenace to the problems of our twentieth century.
