This article explores the implications of Hans-Georg Gadamer’s hermeneutics for the understanding of tradition in Orthodox theology. It is argued that Gadamer’s hermeneutical approach does not only entail a rehabilitation of tradition, but also a critical potential likely to trigger a re-reading of this concept within the framework of Orthodox theology.
