Protopresbyter Georges Vasilievich Florovsky

The Hagia Sophia Churches

translated by: Aleksandar Đakovac

pages: 91-94

Abstract

In the Orthodox Church, the Wisdom of God was never understood as an abstract energy – it was identified with Christ, the Incarnated Logos, which has its echo in the church art. The author briefly reviews the historical testimonies of such understanding, starting from New Testament writings, through the Byzantine era to the late Middle Ages in Russia.
