The idea of a church or parish community is a constant in Russian theology. But until today, no one has really attempted to define it nor has anyone tried to determine its origin nor to trace the evolution of this term in theology. The aim of this article is to define the watershed moments which shaped the definition and further developments of this term in the Russian tradition.

This article deals with three questions: a few guiding principles of the Roman Catholic teaching on parishes: an analysis of smaller religious communities from the theological and ecclesiological point of view, as well as a discussion of the relationship between the parish and smaller communities which exist within it.

This article presents the results of a sociological study conducted in the years 2010-2011, which attempted to study some contemporary problems relating to the parish community of the Russian Orthodox Church. Parishioners of three Moscow parishes were questioned - the parishes of the Holy Venerable Tsarevich Dimitry, of Saint Mitrophan of Voronezh and that of Saint Nicholas in Kuznetsy. Data gathered from the survey provided the authors with some suggestions regarding how to form a strong and active Orthodox parish community.

This article analyses the three epideictic orations of Isocrates which are in themselves a precious testimony of the quality of intellectual life at the close of the fourth century before Christ. To this period belong also the Socratics who are generally seen as an important link between Socrates and Plato. The author of this article proposes a more productive approach to the study of Antisthenes, Euclid of Megara and other so-called Socratics, revealing them not as independent thinkers but rather as adherents of the sophistic school and also as teachers, thereby, including them among those who took part in the educative activity of their time.

The so-called Socratic protreptikos is usually seen as a kind of transitory genre departing from the epideictic oratory of the Sophists and leading into the early dialogues of Plato. The aim of this article is to examine various examples of Socratic protreptikoi and to further define whether we can speak of a type of genre in formation and of the transitory nature of this genre. The author also wishes to draw the reader’s attention to a few problems of methodology which are related to our understanding of the protreptik corpus which dates from the fourth century BC to the time of the birth of Our Lord. The article also examines the differences between the explicitly named protreptikoi (Cleitophon, Euthydemos) and those generally known under the name of Socratic protreptikoi.

PAPERS OF SCIENTIFIC-METHODOLOGICAL SEMINAR

Larchet Jean-Claude
PDF
In this article, the well-known Orthodox patristic scholar and theologian Jean-Claude Larchet explores some fundamental questions in Orthodox theology especially touching on its aims and methods. For him, the most vital aspects of theology include its mystical, empirical, rational, and discursive qualities. He shows that theology must take into account all these aspects and not just one of them. The author then turns his attention to the question of the place of theology in the Church, finding at least three areas where theology is helpful: catechesis, apologetics, and in the liturgy of glorification (doxologia). He also discusses the relationship of theology to other rational sciences: philosophy and literature. Always important for the author is the question of innovation and tradition in theology - a theme which is vital for contemporary minds. Logical assumption brings the author to a discussion of the place of spirituality and ecclesial obligations in the formulation of theology. The French theologian stresses the need for a theologian to have a solid knowledge of both ancient Christian texts as well as of contemporary theological and philosophical literature.
