Living in the Light of Tabor

I had missed the fact that last Sunday was the Sunday of Gregory Palamas among the Eastern Orthodox. Since I am a Palamist (which is unusual for someone who tends Thomistic), I thought I'd put a few links up about the great theologian of the hesychasts. Unfortunately, there isn't much available online, but I was able to scrounge up a few worth reading.

The Pneumatology of Bernard Lonergan: A Byzantine Comparison (PDF) by Eugene Webb (One criticism: It erroneously attributes the formula "the Spirit proceeds from the Father through the Son" to the Union Council of Lyons. This is not true; the formula at Lyons was "the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son as from one principle". Florence reaffirmed this and said that the common expression "The Spirit proceeds from the Father through the Son" meant the same thing.)
