Taxonomies of beings in the Palamite literature: Part 1. Early history of the topic of hierarchy of beings and appearance of this topic in the Palamite controversy
Languages of publication
The study shows that the biblical discourse of the taxonomy of beings goes from Gregory of Nyssa to the Dionysian discourse, and afterwards it influences the teaching of Gregory Palamas. Based on the passage from David Disipat’s “History” discovered by Robert Browning, the author puts forward a new hypothesis about the time when the polemic about the taxonomy first appears in the Palamite controversy. Also, he gives an outline of Gregory Palamas’s teachings about the taxonomy of the participating beings. He shows that in Gregory the theme of the taxonomy of the participating beings is tightly connected to the theme of the supernatural participating of a created being in the Divine.
