    Project Details


    The project is connected to one of the theological issues which divided the eastern and western churches: an interpolated expression, filioque. Against theological oppositions and misunderstanding of the two traditions around the expression, it will provide a possibility to reach a satisfying consensus on the filioque controversy. It will take three theological approaches: the patristic, biblical-theological, and systematic-theological approaches. By them, it will find a complementary understanding of the two divided traditions. In the procedure, the hypostatic particularity of the Spirit as ‘love’ will be examined in terms of the relationship in the Triune God and between God and the creatures.
