  • Unfading Light : Contemplations And Speculations

    $49.50

    With its scholarly discussions of myth, German idealist philosophy, negative theology, and mysticism, shot through with reflections on personal religious experiences, Unfading Light documents what a life in Orthodoxy came to mean for Sergius Bulgakov on the tumultuous eve of the 1917 October Revolution. Written in the final decade of the Russian Silver Age, the book is a typical product of that era of experimentation in all fields of culture and life. Bulgakov referred to the book as miscellanies, a patchwork of chapters articulating in symphonic form the ideas and personal experiences that he and his entire generation struggled to comprehend. Readers may be reminded of St. Augustine’s Confessions and City of God as they follow Bulgakov through the challenges and opportunities presented to Orthodoxy by modernity.

  • Icons And The Name Of God

    $30.50

    In Orthodox theology both the icon and the name of God transmit divine energies, theophanies, or revelations that imprint God’s image within us. In Icons and the Name of God renowned Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov explains the theology behind the Orthodox veneration of icons and the glorification of the name of God. In the process Bulgakov covers two major controversies – the iconoclastic controversy (sixth to eighth centuries) and the “Name of God” controversy (early twentieth century) – and explains his belief that an icon stops being merely a religious painting and becomes sacred when it is named. This translation of two essays “The Icon and Its Veneration” and “The Name of God” – available in English for the first time – makes Bulgakov’s rich thinking on these key theological concepts available to a wider audience than ever before.

  • Relics And Miracles

    $25.50

    Esteemed translator Boris Jakim here presents for the first time in English two major theological essays by Sergius Bulgakov. In “On Holy Relics,” Bulgakov’s 1918 response to Bolshevik desecration of the relics of Russian saints, he develops a comprehensive theology of relics, connecting them with the Incarnation and showing their place in sacramental theology in general. In “On the Gospel Miracles” (1932), Bulgakov presents a Christological doctrine of the Gospel miracles, focusing on the question of how human activity relates to the works of Christ. Both works are suffused with Bulgakov’s faith in Christian resurrection – and with his signature “religious materialism,” where the corporeal is illuminated by the spiritual and the earthly is transfigured into the heavenly.

  • Jacobs Ladder : On Angels

    $31.50

    Few of the great Russian author Sergius Bulgakov’s writings achieve the lyrical heights of Jacob’s Ladder. In this book, originally published in 1929, Bulgakov discusses the doctrine of angels and their importance for contemporary humanity. He includes reflections on the meaning of love, the sexes, death, and the Christian hope of resurrection, meditating on the Wisdom of God in the creation.

    Jacob’s Ladder completes the development of Divine Sophia and creation begun in The Burning Bush and The Friend of the Bridegroom, which together constitute Bulgakov’s first dogmatic trilogy.

  • Burning Bush : On The Orthodox Veneration Of The Mother Of God

    $30.50

    The Burning Bush is the first component in Sergius Bulgakov’s “minor” theological trilogy, followed by The Friend of the Bridegroom and Jacob’s Ladder. This book offers a refutation to the Roman Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception. Bulgakov tempers the potential narrowness of such a focus in order to offer an exposition of Orthodox veneration of the Mother of God. The book that results is a consideration of the personal sinlessness of Mary, the truth of which he finds grounded in both gospel witness and the liturgical tradition of the church. Though his most controversial legacy to the theological community, Bulgakov’s Sophiology nevertheless is critical to understanding his Mariology. More than mere sophiological speculation, however, anthropology, eschatology, original sin, human sanctity, and sexuality all find their way into his exploration of the mystery of the woman chosen by God to give birth freely to the Christ.

  • Churchly Joy : Orthodox Devotions For The Church Year

    $18.50

    The orations in Sergius Bulgakov’s “Churchly Joy” are rooted firmly in the Orthodox tradition of preaching. Here the preacher is, like John the Divine, a seer of mysteries and a mystical visionary. Bulgakov strives to place before us the great mysteries of the Orthodox Church as reflected in her major feasts – celebrations of the Annunciation, the Birth of Christ, the Epiphany, the Transfiguration, the triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and Easter – and a few more general topics.

    These orations – especially those on the use of liturgy and prayer – function very much as building blocks for Bulgakov’s theological doctrines. Indeed, scholars and ministers familiar with his theological works of the Paris period will find here a foundation for understanding his theology more clearly. Yet lay readers will also find much to enrich their own spiritual journey.

    One of the very few works of Orthodox spirituality and devotional theology available in English, “Churchly Joy” reflects Bulgakov’s own transcendent visions for the church.

  • Lamb Of God

    $41.50

    What is our participation in the divine humanity? According to Bulgakov, humans “consist of an uncreated, divine spirit . . . and of a created soul and body.” Prior to Christ’s coming, humans do not have the power to realize in themselves the new spiritual birth that is not of flesh and blood, but of God. In explaining this important doctrine, Bulgakov begins by surveying the field of Christology with special reference to the divine humanity. He then considers the role of the Divine Sophia, examines the foundations of the Incarnation, explores the nature of Christ’s divine consciousness, and ponders Christ’s ministries while on Earth. A profound discussion of Christ’s kenosis as a model for humanity rounds out this comprehensive and valuable study. The Lamb of God is one of the greatest works of Christology in the twentieth century and a crowning achievement in the examination of the theology of divine humanity.

  • Comforter

    $41.50

    Sergius Bulgakov is widely considered to be the twentieth century’s foremost Orthodox theologian, and his book The Comforter is an utterly comprehensive and profound study of the Holy Spirit.

    Encyclopedic in scope, The Comforter explores all aspects of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, as they are viewed in the Orthodox tradition and throughout church history. The book has sections on the development of the doctrine of the Spirit in early Christianity and on the development of the doctrine of procession in the patristic and later Byzantine periods. It also touches on the place of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity and explores Old and New Testament notions of the Spirit of God. A concluding chapter deals with the mystical revelation of the Holy Spirit. Made available in English through the work of Boris Jakim, today’s premier translator of Russian theology and philosophy into English, Bulgakov’s Comforter in this edition is a major publishing event.

  • Friend Of The Bridegroom

    $29.50

    “The Friend of the Bridegroom” offers a compelling theological interpretation of John the Baptist as seen through the eyes of Eastern Orthodoxy. Written by Sergius Bulgakov, the greatest Russian theologian of modern times, this book sheds new light on the mission and meaning of John the Baptist, commonly referred to in Orthodoxy as the Forerunner of the Lord. Bulgakov traces the Baptist’s life from beginning to end — his birth, his preaching of repentance, his baptism of the Lord, his agony, his death, and his veneration in the context of Eastern Orthodoxy. In addition to its use of the Gospel narratives, Bulgakov’s profound portrait of the Baptist is colored by sacred tradition as it is embodied in patristic literature, in liturgy, and in iconography. Yet this is not a work of arcane scholarship intended just for academic readers. Typical of all of Bulgakov’s books, “The Friend of the Bridegroom” is steeped in devotional language and holy awe. In the words of translator Boris Jakim, it is a work of prayer that will stir the souls of Christians everywhere.

  • Bride Of The Lamb

    $47.50

    Sergius Bulgakov is thought by many to be the twentieth century’s foremost Russian Orthodox theologian. The Bride of the Lamb is widely regarded as Bulgakov’s magnum opus and, even more, as one of the greatest works ever produced in the modern Orthodox church. This book is now available in English thanks to esteemed translator Boris Jakim, along with an introduction to Bulgakov and his theological context.

    For readers new to Russian religious thought, The Bride of the Lamb presents a fresh approach to Christian doctrine. Bulgakov examines issues of ecclesiology and eschatology from a sophiological perspective. This distinctive Russian approach, based on the doctrine of Sophia, the wisdom of God, sees the Creator and creation intimately linked as Divine-humanity. The Bride of the Lamb explores the nature of created beings, the relationship between God and the world, the role of the church, and such eschatological themes as the second coming of Jesus, resurrection and judgment, and the afterlife.
