Shoulder Surgery and Bulgakov

I’m having rotary cuff surgery tomorrow. I do not know yet how it will interfere with my typing and thus my blogging.

I do have two articles in the hopper. The first article in my series on Sergius Bulgakov’s eschatology should debut on Wednesday, with the second article appearing next Monday. I expect that the series will continue from two to four weeks, depending on my shoulder’s progress.

I’m very much enjoying reading Bulgakov, but I also recognize that I am way out of my depths, particularly given my lack of acquaintance with Russian philosophy and sophiology. But hopefully my postings will pique your interest and encourage you to take a look at his writings.

I have also found Aidan Nichols’s primer on Bulgakov, Wisdom From Above, to be quite helpful in my reading of The Bride of the Lamb.

    Father bless,
    You are in this sinner’s feeble prayers for a safe surgery without any complications and a quick recovery. Thank you for your efforts with your blog and I eagerly await and enjoy each post.

    Good luck with the surgery, Father.

    I’m a big fan of Bulgakov, especially the “big trilogy.” Look forward to what you have to share.

    Rowan Williams put together a decent anthology of Bulgakov years ago, btw. There’s an article by John Milbank, Sophiology and Theurgy, that has some good insight on Bulgakov as well, though Milbank is not much easier to read than Bulgakov sometimes.

    Best of luck! The other side, a few weeks down the road, will make it all worthwhile. I’ll be thinking of you… AND Christine!

    I read only one book of Fr. Sergius Bulgakov, “Friend of the Bridegroom.” Quite profound, I never really got a truly theological appreciation of the Forerunner until this book. It’s because of this book I think we have a lot of Theotokias, but extremely few Prodromias that deserve his greatness. To summarize the importance of the veneration of the Deisis icon: through the Theotokos, Christ was brought to the world; through the Prodromos, the world was brought to Christ.

    Prayers and intercessions of the Theotokos and Prodromos be with you Father.
