9780268025908: Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church

“This work explores, with detail and insight, the discipline of spiritual direction in the early Church, providing a fascinating study of 'what happened when monks became bishops.' George Demacopoulos offers us thoughtful, and thought-provoking, analyses of the individual figures concerned, the developing roles of the pastor in antiquity, and the practice of pastoral care itself. This book is sure to advance our understanding of all these fields.” —Fr. John Behr, St. Vladimir Orthodox Theological Seminary “George Demacopoulos has given us a learned and eminently readable study of five major patristic theologians. His book considers the subtle differences in style and policy adopted by leading bishops and ascetics as they considered the best way to advocate for a Christian polity that could command general allegiance. St. Gregory Nazianzen called his project the governance of souls, describing it as 'that art of arts and science of sciences.' This book considers early Christian 'spiritual direction' in its most ample and politically relevant form.” —John McGuckin, Nielsen Professor of Early Ecclesiastical History, Union Theological Seminary "The introduction offers a masterful treatment of the growth of the ascetic movement and the growth of ecclesiastical offices, and the requirements and expectations of leadership in both contexts. It is these expectations of a leader’s responsibility for those entrusted to him that show most clearly the demands of pastoral care." —Claudia Rapp, University of California, Los Angeles Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church explores the struggles of five clerics (Athanasius, Gregory Nazianzen, Augustine of Hippo, John Cassian, and Pope Gregory I) to reconcile their ascetic idealism with the reality of pastoral responsibility. Through a close reading of Greek and Latin texts, George E. Demacopoulos explores each pastor's criteria for ordination, supervision of subordinate clergy, and methods of spiritual direction. He argues that the evolution in spiritual direction that occurred during this period reflected and informed broader developments in religious practices.

Description du livre University of Notre Dame Press November 2006, 2006. Paper Back. État : New. In this clearly written, carefully nuanced, and substantial study, the author traces the development of the conception and practice of spiritual direction over two centuries from Athanasius to Gregory the Great. Demacopoulos posits that a distinction between monastic (ascetical) and lay (sacramental and moral) models of spiritual direction dominated this period and uses a series of patristic case studies to illustrate a range of acceptance, rejection, and synthesis. Though Athanasius exalts the ascetical model of Antony, he emphases the necessity of episcopal oversight of the rapidly growing monastic movement. With the increasing predominance of monk-bishops, especially in the East, Gregory of Nazianzus represents a concern that priests and bishops combine the ascetical and pastoral aspects of their offices. Augustine focuses on the priority of the doctrinal and homiletical skills of the spiritual father as pastor, while his contemporary (and in many ways polar opposite) John Cassian speaks almost exclusively of spiritual direction in a monastic context. Gregory the Great is the epitome of the priest who could master ascetic practice while prudently shepherding a flock 'in the world,' and the enthusiastic reception of his Pastoral Care in West and East confirmed the dominance of that model. That Demacopoulos' study defines spiritual direction in terms of the changing nature of episcopacy and pastorate implies much about our contemporary, individualistic conception of the nature of that task. 274 pp. N° de réf. du libraire 20100609173529

Description du livre University of Notre Dame Press, United States, 2006. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In late antiquity, the rising number of ascetics who joined the priesthood faced a pastoral dilemma. Should they follow a traditional, demonstrably administrative, approach to pastoral care, emphasizing doctrinal instruction, the care of the poor, and the celebration of the sacraments? Or should they bring to the parish the ascetic models of spiritual direction, characterized by a more personal spiritual father/spiritual disciple relationship? Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church explores the struggles of five clerics (Athanasius, Gregory Naziansen, Augustine of Hippo, John Cassian, and Pope Gregory I) to reconcile their ascetic idealism with the reality of pastoral responsibility. Through a close reading of Greek and Latin texts, George E. Demacopoulos explores each pastor s criteria for ordination, his supervision of subordinate clergy, and his methods of spiritual direction. He argues that the evolution in spiritual direction that occurred during this period reflected and informed broader developments in religious practices. Demacopoulos describes the way in which these authors shaped the medieval pastoral traditions of the East and the West.Each of the five struggled to balance the tension between his ascetic idealism and the realities of the lay church. Each offered distinct (and at times very different) solutions to that tension. Scholars and students of late antiquity, the history of Christianity, and historical theology will find a great deal of interest in Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church . The book will also appeal to those who are actively engaged in Christian ministry. N° de réf. du libraire AAC9780268025908
