The Logic of Palamism

The teaching of St. Gregory Palamas (1296–1359) is widely considered both as the peak of traditional patristic and Byzantine theology and also as the main source of contemporary Orthodox theology. The status of Palamas in the Christian East may be comparable only with the position of St. Thomas Aquinas in the West. The teaching of these two masters is often contrasted. Palamas is usually presented as a perfect example of the dominant eastern trend of mystical theology based on experience, whereas Aquinas is thought to be a paradigmatic case of a typical western rational and conceptual theology. If one takes into account that Palamas was involved into a long-lasting struggle with Barlaam of Calabria, who was supposed to be a Thomist, the contrast between these two great figures reflects difficult relationships between the Eastern and Western Christendom.
