About Georges Florovsky

  • Georges Vasilievich Florovsky (Russian: ???´???? ????´?????? ?????´?????; September 9 [O.S.
  • August 28], 1893 – August 11, 1979) was an Orthodox Christian priest, theologian, historian and ecumenist.
  • Born in Odessa, in the Russian Empire, he spent his working life in Paris (1920–1949) and New York (1949–1979).
  • With Sergei Bulgakov, Vladimir Lossky, Justin Popovic and Dumitru Staniloae he was one of the more influential Orthodox Christian theologians of the mid-20th century.
  • He was particularly concerned that modern Christian theology might receive inspiration from the lively intellectual debates of the patristic traditions of the undivided Church rather than from later Scholastic or Reformation categories of thought.
