On his elder, Sergei of Vanves, true theology and its presuppositions, the theology of Met. John of Pergamon, the danger for Orthodox theologians in America, the presuppositions of the Mysteries and the Boundaries of the Church

Turn the volume full up, for Dr. Larchet is soft spoken and the recording is wanting:

Jean-Claude Larchet is one of the most important and interesting Orthodox scholars writing today. Born in 1949, Dr Larchet holds doctorates in philosophy (1987) and theology (1994). The author of twenty-seven books, his three volumes on St Maximos the Confessor – La Divinisation de l'homme selon saint Maxime le Confesseur(1996), Maxime le Confesseur, médiateur entre l'Orient et l'Occident (1998), and Saint Maxime le Confesseur (2003) – are widely acknowledged as among the best studies of this great saint and theologian published in any lanaguage. Equally remarkable is his three-part series on illness and healing in the Patristic tradition: Théologie de la maladie (1991), Thérapeutique des maladies mentales (1992), and Thérapeutique des maladies spirituelles (1997), which has now appeared in English translation (see below). Dr Larchet is one of the very few contemporary authors who is able seamlessly to combine rigorous scholarship with a vibrant sense of the inner life of the Church
