The Body in St Maximus the Confessor

Why did God create the universe? How does it exist independently of the divine essence? Is matter essential or incidental in the cosmic economy? In what way are body and soul both one and distinct? Reviewing Maximus’ anthropocentric cosmology, this chapter examines the ontological status and function of the body, both cosmic and human.
