Part of the Radical Theologies and Philosophies book series (RADT)


This chapter shows how radical theology was viewed and understood by some Eastern Orthodox and Radical Orthodox theologians. First, it explains what radicalization means for radical theology and how this radicalization relates to Orthodox theology. Orthodox theology is also in its own sense radical because the theological perspective of created beings in Orthodox traditions is a radical deification of the creation resulting in its ultimate perfection and infinite unity with God. The complex moral and intellectual atmosphere of the postmodern West needs not rejection but examination from the viewpoint of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, even if this atmosphere can be toxic and destructive to Christianity.
