This is an excellent introduction to the work of Maximos the Confessor. Louth's commentary and historical introduction place the work within the historical and theological context of the Christological controversies without succumbing to a tunnel vision to Chalcedon. The selections from Maximos's work are varied in accesibility, ranging from the welcoming "Letter 2: On Love" to the challenging, exhaustive exploration of the Transfiguration in "Difficultly 10."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415118468, Paperback)

St Maximus the Confessor, the greatest of Byzantine theologians, lived through the most catastrophic period the Byzantine Empire was to experience before the Crusades. This book introduces the reader to the times and upheavals during which Maximus lived. It discusses his cosmic vision of humanity and the role of the church. The study makes available a selection of Maximus' theological treaties many of them translated for the first time. The translations are accompanied by a lucid and informed introduction.
