Overview

** Active Table of Contents **

This edition of An Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith comes complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each book.

An Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith (Ekdosis akribes tes orthodoxou pisteos) provides a beautiful summary of the dogmatic writings of the Early Church Fathers. This writing was the first work of Scholasticism in Eastern Christianity and an important influence on later Scholastic works.

Saint John of Damascus (c. 676 – 4 December 749) was a Syrian Christian monk and priest. Born and raised in Damascus, he died at his monastery, Mar Saba, near Jerusalem.

He is called the last Greek Church father. John of Damascus wrote the first Christian polemic against Islam. The polemic (the haeresibus 100) was written at a time when the great church of Damascus was renamed the Umayyad Mosque and the barrel of the bishop of Damascus, a friend of John of Damascus, was cut off due to his criticism of Islam (Michiel Op de Coul en Marcel Poorthuis, 2011).

A polymath whose fields of interest and contribution included law, theology, philosophy, and music, before being ordained, he served as a Chief Administrator to the Muslim caliph of Damascus, wrote works expounding the Christian faith, and composed hymns which are still in everyday use in Eastern Christian monasteries throughout the world.

The Catholic Church regards him as a Doctor of the Church, often referred to as the Doctor of the Assumption due to his writings on the Assumption of Mary.
