Abstract :
The challenge of Orthodox theology is both to assimilate patristic knowledge and to apply it in a vibrant and transformative way to the existential state of the contemporary world. However, the question of which principles are to be applied is still in many ways unanswered in contemporary Orthodox theology. The author seeks to answer this query by resorting to the work of Father Dumitru Stăniloae (1903-1993) as a paradigm.
