About the Book

Sophiology — the philosophical and theological notion of a splendor becoming immanent in the world, through nature, liturgy, prayer, and the arts — has only recently come into its own as an important area of study. For both serious students and those approaching Sophiology for the first time, there can be few better guides than Sergius Bulgakov, who has come to be recognized as one of the most important theologians of the twentieth century. After years of wrestling with Marxian social and economic theory, Bulgakov eventually found refuge in the Russian Orthodox Church and in the theology of Sophia, the Divine Wisdom, as God’s mystical presence in creation. Sophiology, as this book shows, is not a rogue theology, but a way of perceiving that which shines through the cosmos: a way that can return metaphysics to postmodern thought and facilitate a (re)union of religion, science, and art.

About the Author

Sergius Bulgakov (1871–1944) is now widely regarded as one of the most significant theologians of the twentieth century. After turning away from his seminary education to Marxian social and economic theory, Bulgakov later moved towards idealism, and, finally, back to the Russian Orthodox Church. Expelled from the Soviet Union in 1922, he took refuge, eventually, in Paris, where he helped to set up the Institut de Théologie Orthodoxe Saint-Serge, and where he died in 1944.
