This volume unlocks the as yet unknown treasure troves of Byzantine religious florilegia and poetry, and monastic kephalaia.
The title of this volume, “Theologica Minora”, may wrongly suggest that the essays contained herein purport an antiquarian interest in some minor theological quibbles within the vast ocean that is Byzantine theological literature. On the contrary, this volume illuminates texts and theological genres which have so far remained unexplored or under-investigated by the vast majority of scholars. Whilst unlocking the as yet unknown troves of florilegia, religious poetry, and monastic kephalaia, this volume investigates the cultural background of these different endeavors and provides an image of Byzantine theological literature which repudiates the rigid narratives proposed to date.
Antonio Rigo is Professor of Byzantine Philology and Christianity at the University of Venice Ca' Foscari. His research focuses on religious life in Byzantium, with special emphasis on ascetical and mystical literature, heresiology, and theology during the Paleologan period.
