Inclusiveness as a Component of the Theological Approach of St Peter Mogila to the Expression of the Orthodox Faith

pages: 441-464

Abstract

In this article, with a few examples of the subjective soteriology of St Peter Mogila, the author reveals such a feature of his theological approach as inclusiveness. Explaining the Orthodox doctrine in his writings, the Metropolitan included in the definition of a number of concepts some terms, expressions and images borrowed from both the Catholic and Protestant sides in order to reveal their content as fully as possible. This was done so that his flock, constantly in contact with other Christian confessions and suffering from proselytism, through comprehension of the familiar terminology could remain and establish itself in the Orthodox faith.
