The Biblical Aesthetics of Creation and the Christology of the Orthodox Liturgy

pages: 339-358

Abstract

This paper will discuss the mystery of God’s creation of the World. The beauty of Christian tradition is contemplated trough the Old Testament theology of original sin (ancestral sin) and New Testament Christology, which Christians experience in the church through their own senses.

This blessing mystery of human salvation is revealed in the Liturgy and sacramental place – churches. The Divine Liturgy, throughout all the centuries, bears witness to the beauty of God’s presence among the people as deification, which people experience through the senses given from God.
