About

I am a Christian, of the Orthodox confession; by profession I am a philologist and a medievalist with a concentration on medieval philosophy (especially Neoplatonism and its influence on Christianity). I believe in the inspired nature of the Bible, and yet I believe that the Holy Spirit also gave deep insights into things divine to other, non-Biblical cultures of which I know best the Classical Greek intellectual tradition: Plato's, Sophocles', Homer's etc. great insights, sometimes even deeper than those of the Biblical prophets, are impossible without divine gifts and they in many respects comply with the salvational Truth revealed fully in the New Testament. Spirit breathes where He wishes to, and thus Christians in no way should be encapsulated only in the Bible, but read extensively the great world literature and philosophy to discover and appreciate there the working of the Spirit.
