General Considerations regarding the Anthropology of Protestant Theologian Emil Brunner

9 August 2018

Are there differences between the anthropology of Protestant theologian Emil Brunner and the Orthodox anthropological theology? We consider that there are, and they start from a very simple fact. In our opinion, Brunner’s anthropology is characterized by a lack of thorough knowledge of the patristic thinking of the early Christian ages, especially that of the Eastern Church Fathers, as well as a lack of knowledge of the life and spirituality of the Eastern Church, which has formulated and kept with reverence, over the ages, the teaching of human person.
