The Life in Christ by Nicholas Cabasilas is a remarkable product of Byzantium's last great flowering of theology.

The Life in Christ by Nicholas Cabasilas is a remarkable product of Byzantium's last great flowering of theology. At a time when secular humanism was increasingly asserting man's complete autonomy. How does one describe the journey of sacramental mysticism Nicholas Cabasilas (born 1322 in Thessalonica) takes you on in The Life in Christ? He writes at the last gasp of the Byzantine glory years, before that fateful day on May 28, 1453, when Mohammed the Conqueror squashed Constantinople. I think of the iconic "old books" intro provided by CS Lewis in the St. Athanasius work On The Incarnation. Nicholas Cabasilas was a 14th Century Byzantine mystic and theological writer. At a time when secular humanism was increasingly asserting man's complete autonomy, Cabasilas proclaimed that man's true life lies not in himself, but in Christ. For him, man's redemption in Jesus Christ is not just a matter of history, which can be elucidated simply by scholarly endeavor.

The Life in Christ book. The book covers Orthodox theology regarding Baptism, Chrismation (what the Western Church calls Confirmation), and Eucharist (Holy Communion). I bought this book in 1999, but it was only now that the Holy Spirit pushed my to pick it up and read it. I'm still not sure that I fully I really liked this book, although it took much longer to read than I thought.

40 Cabasilas, The Life in Christ . 2: Cabasilas portrays Christ as the ‘‘resting place’’ and ‘‘goal of all things’’ for man. 251 But that we may be able to have our attention always directed towards Him and have this zeal at all times, let us call on Him, the subject of our salvation, at every hour. There is no need whatever of special formalities for prayers, nor need those who call upon him have any special places or a loud voice.

A podcast series covering Ancient Greek political, social, and cultural. Ancient Fairytales (Part 2). Sometime in the 18th Dynasty, perhaps around the time of Akhenaten, a fairy-tale became popular in Egypt. The story spoke of a prince, forced to flee his home after a prophecy foretold that he would die from one of three fates - a dog, a snake, or a crocodile. Leaving Egypt, the prince went on many adventures - some quite familiar from our own fairy tales.

Nicholas Cabasilas, Greek Orthodox lay theologian and liturgist who eminently represents the tradition of Byzantine theology. He wrote extensively on Hesychast mysticism (a traditional method of Byzantine Christian contemplative prayer that integrates vocal and bodily exercises) and on the theology. By essays and political involvement he manifested a social consciousness relative to economic and institutional (including the church) inequities.

Amazing. Saint Cabasilas pray to God for us!
Uaha
Well written and insightful. A good read for any Christian and especially the Orthodox.

Beautiful, direct and meaningful guidance in living, no longer you, but
Christ. Wonderful book.

This book was certainly a treasure! It highlighted the Eastern Church's approach to spirituality, and in many instances, compared it with that of "the West". I will continue to refer back to it, I know.
The book was in great condition, and arrived very quickly after my order was completed. Thank you.

Cabasilas was a man of his times who speaks eloquently to Xnty today, especially in modern Western "civilization". I would highly recommend.

How does one describe the journey of sacramental mysticism Nicholas Cabasilas (born 1322 in Thessalonica) takes you on in The Life in Christ? He writes at the last gasp of the Byzantine glory years, before that fateful day on May 28, 1453, when Mohammed the Conqueror squashed Constantinople.

I think of the iconic "old books" intro provided by CS Lewis in the St. Athanasius work On The Incarnation. Lewis says:

"There is a strange idea abroad that in every subject the ancient books should be read only by the professionals, and that the amateur should content himself with the modern books. Thus I have found as a tutor in English Literature that if the average student wants to find out something about Platonism, the very last thing he thinks of doing is to take a translation of Plato off the library shelf and read the Symposium. He would rather read some dreary modern book ten times as long, all about "isms" and influences and only once in twelve pages telling him what Plato actually said." -C.S. Lewis

In my view, Cabasilas is like that, only he is easy to read. Unlike many of the ancients, this work at times reads like a New Age self help book on how to walk with God. Sure the Boris Bobrinskoy introduction is too long and is of the "dreary" referenced by Lewis. But I even liked the intro.

All the Cabasilas themes and discussions on the sacramental Christianity of old I found contemporary and helpful:

Getting right...Developing heavenly sight and smell, getting ready for eternity, prepared for the experience.

Synergy, responsibility, freedom...how do you work out your salvation and let God work in you at the same time?

Unity with self and care of the soul...can't be one with God if you're disintegrated rather than integrated as a person.

Divinization...becoming godlike without becoming God; the Cabasilas take on the Athanasius quote: what does it mean that "he was made man that we might be made God"; "Eucharistic and Baptismal grace is the source of the believer's illumination".

Friends...friends with true benefits; how does one walk with God and with others, and not get lost?

Love...to be known by God is to be loved..."it is knowing that causes, gives birth to love"; "love is an ecstasy because it leads those whom it seizes beyond the limits of human nature"; love as a "wound"; God as lover smites us with this wound.

Free Will; why would one want to be an angel when one could be born a man or a woman?

Cabasilas writes in as approachable manner, just as he speaks of Jesus as "God available to the senses". After reading this "old book", I think you'll agree with Bobrinskoy, that in Cabasilas we have "a remarkable combination of the humanist, philosopher, savant--a statesman not only in civil affairs but equally those of the Church; an orator, a theologian, a mystic; `neither monk, nor priest nor hermit fleeing from the world to study ...or indeed from the common feelings of humanity.'"
The content was a little heavy.
