Theology vs. Academics

“We see that this approach to theology, based on the personal and ecclesial experience of God, makes it clear that authentic Patristic theology radically differs from what is understood by the term theology among modern academics.” – p. 42, [Light from the East: Theology, Science, and the Eastern Orthodox Tradition, by Alexei V. Nesteruk]

“According to The Philokalia’s definition, in order to receive a gift of theologia one must be nearly a saint.” – p. 43, Ibid.
