The Greek East and the Latin West: A Study in the Christian Tradition

   
by Philip Sherrard

Twelfth Publication in The Romiosyni Series

“[This...]study is meant to indicate both the nature and some consequences of certain dominantly intellectual developments and changes in Europe during the Christian period, especially as these concern the Greek East and the Latin West. To this end, however, it does not proceed only by means of an examination and analysis of evidence of a factual nature, whether this be provided by the material events of history or in the form of the ideas and opinions of actual historical personages. On the contrary, it assumes that if such evidence is to have value in an inquiry of this nature it must first of all be related to principles of a ‘non-historical’ order, principles which themselves cannot be deduced from that evidence. This means, in effect, that the study proceeds from an a priori acceptance of such principles, and uses these to interpret evidence which in itself is inadequate for a real understanding of the subject. From this point of view, it might be said that the study represents an attempt to treat its subject sub specie aeternitatis. This is not to say that historical facts are ignored, but only that they tend more to serve as illustration than to form the basis of the study. [...]If the study proceeds from an acceptance of principles of a non-historical order, from where are these principles themselves derived? The answer is in this case determined by the subject itself: they are derived from the Christian tradition. Christianity is the matrix of the intellectual and cultural life of Europe during the Christian period, and thus its principles provide the norm in reference to which the nature of the developments and changes in that life may be assessed.”
