Title: Christian Philosophy and the Name of God
Subtitle: Aesthetics as a Way of Life according to Aleksey Losev
Author(s): OBOLEVITCH, Teresa
Journal: Journal of Eastern Christian Studies
Volume: 71 Issue: 1-2 Date: 2019
Losev was one of the most representative advocates of so called onomatodoxy movement in the Russian Orthodox Church according to which the name of God is not something conventional, but God himself. His practice of so-called Jesus Prayer, or invocation of the name of God is nothing but practical exercise in aesthetics as a way of life and love of the divine Wisdom. Both the content and style of Losev’s writings confirm his perception of reality through the prism of religious and aesthetic experience.
