(p.128) 5 Theosis as Constituent of the Doctrine of God
The Ground of Union

A. N. Williams

Oxford University Press

This chapter gathers the variegated strands of Palamas' doctrine of deification and groups them into two main themes. Identifying the principal themes of the Palamite doctrine of theosis will provide a understanding of how the doctrine functions in relation to Palamas' theology as a whole, and grasping this relationship is crucial to understanding the doctrine of theosis itself. Furthermore, exploring the relationship between the twin themes and the essence-energies distinction will assist in clarifying the function of the distinction in his work.

Keywords:   deification, Gregory Palamas, theosis, essence-energies distinction
