Philosophy of economy : the world as household by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writings of Sergei Bulgakov (1871-1944), like those of other major social thinkers of Russia's Silver Age, were obliterated from public consciousness under Soviet rule. Discovered again after eighty years of silence, Bulgakov's work speaks with remarkable directness of the postmodern listener. This translation of Philosophy of Economy brings to English-language speakers for the first time a major work of social theory written by a critical figure in the Russian tradition of liberal thought." "What is unique about Bulgakov, Catherine Evtuhov explains in her introduction to this book, is that he bridges two worlds. His social thought is firmly based in the Western tradition, yet some of his ideas reflect a specifically Russian way of thinking about society. Though arguing strenuously in favor of political and social liberty, Bulgakov repudiates the individualistic basis of Western liberalism in favor of a conception of human dignity that is compatible with collectivity. His economic theory stresses the spiritual content of life in the world and imagines national life as a kind of giant household Bulgakov's work, with its singularly postmodern balance between Western and non-Western, offers fascinating implications for those in the process of reevaluating ideologies in post-Soviet Russia and in America as well."--Jacket
Unfading light : contemplations and speculations by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With its scholarly discussions of myth, German idealist philosophy, negative theology, and mysticism, shot through with reflections on personal religious experiences, Unfading Light documents what a life in Orthodoxy came to mean for Sergius Bulgakov on the tumultuous eve of the 1917 October Revolution. Written in the final decade of the Russian Silver Age, the book is a typical product of that era of experimentation in all fields of culture and life. Bulgakov referred to the book as miscellanies, a patchwork of chapters articulating in symphonic form the ideas and personal experiences that he and his entire generation struggled to comprehend. Readers may be reminded of St. Augustine's Confessions and City of God as they follow Bulgakov through the challenges and opportunities presented to Orthodoxy by modernity."--Publisher's description
The Orthodox Church by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

38 editions published between 1935 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bride of the Lamb by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

17 editions published between 1945 and 2005 in Russian and English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lamb of God by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

19 editions published between 1871 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is our participation in the divine humanity? In explaining this important doctrine, Sergius Bulgakov begins by surveying the field of Christology with special reference to the divine humanity. He considers the role of the Divine Sophia, examines the foundations of the Incarnation, explores the nature of Christ's divine consciousness, and ponders Christ's ministries while on earth. A profound discussion of Christ's kenosis as a model for humanity rounds out this comprehensive and valuable study
Karl Marx as a religious type : his relation to the religion of anthropotheism of L. Feuerbach by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

The Comforter by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encyclopedic in scope, The Comforter explores all aspects of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, as they are viewed in the Orthodox tradition and throughout church history. The book has sections on the development of the doctrine of the Spirit in early Christianity and on the development of the doctrine of procession in the patristic and later Byzantine periods. It also touches on the place of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity and explores Old and New Testament notions of the Spirit of God. A concluding chapter deals with the mystical revelation of the Holy Spirit. Made available in English through the work of Boris Jakim, today's premier translator of Russian theology and philosophy into English, Bulgakov's Comforter in this edition is a major publishing event
The friend of the bridegroom : on the Orthodox veneration of the Forerunner by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The burning bush : on the Orthodox veneration of the Mother of God by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mother of God has had very different depictions throughout the many branches of Christianity. "The Burning Bush" is a scholarly exploration of the Virgin Mary and what she means to the Russian Orthodox Church, where she more often referred to as Mary the Mother of God. Although similar in concept and veneration of the figure, the Roman Catholic Church and Russian Orthodox Church worship very differently, and author Sergius Bulgakov does well in explaining this branch of Christianity that is foreign to many readers. "The Burning Bush" is a very much recommended read for any who want to better understand the wider scope of Christianity
Icons ; and, the name of God by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Orthodox theology both the icon and the name of God transmit divine energies, theophanies, or revelations that imprint God's image within us. In Icons and the Name of God renowned Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov explains the theology behind the Orthodox veneration of icons and the glorification of the name of God. In the process Bulgakov covers two major controversies -- the iconoclastic controversy (sixth to eighth centuries) and the "Name of God" controversy (early twentieth century) -- and explains his belief that an icon stops being merely a religious painting and becomes sacred when it is named. This translation of two essays "The Icon and Its Veneration" and "The Name of God"--Available in English for the first time -- makes Bulgakov's rich thinking on these key theological concepts available to a wider audience than ever before."--Publisher's description
Jacob's ladder : on angels by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few of the great Russian author Sergius Bulgakov's writings achieve the lyrical heights of Jacob's Ladder. In this book, originally published in 1929, Bulgakov explores the doctrine of angels and their importance for contemporary humanity. He frames his work with meditations on the meaning of love, not as a sentimental indulgence, but as a way of understanding the deep, tender, self-sacrificing, personal knowledge that is both at the heart of a Trinitarian God and in the midst of relationships between human beings and their guardian angels. These discussions on the creation, function, nature, appearances and incorporeality of angels lead also to reflections on the incarnation and human nature, especially the role of the sexes, death, and the Christian hope of resurrection. Jacob's Ladder completes the development of Divine Sophia--on the Wisdom of God in creation--begun in The Burning Bush and The Friend of the Bridegroom, which together constitute Bulgakov's first dogmatic trilogy
Towards a Russian political theology by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sergii Bulgakov was one of the most influential Russian thinkers in the 'Silver Age' of Russian intellectual life in the decade and a half before the Revolution." "This book offers a representative selection and engagement with the books and essays of his formative years. It includes full notes, commentaries and an introductory essay by Rowan Williams." "In this way Williams brings to our attention a figure who continues to be influential in recent dissident movements, establishing a major point of reference for those seeking a radical or Christian alternative to state socialism and the free market."--BOOK JACKET
Sophia, the wisdom of God : an outline of sophiology by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2020 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a great hunger to recover the feminine aspect of the Divinity. But much searching has left Christians disappointed and seeking the "Goddess" elsewhere. In this brave theological work, Bulgakov shows how the Divine Sophia, in whom all things are created, is present in the Holy Trinity itself and how, as the "creaturely Sophia," she works together with her divine counterpart in the work of the Holy Spirit for the redemption of the world

Relics and miracles : two theological essays by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esteemed translator Boris Jakim here presents for the first time in English two major theological essays by Sergius Bulgakov. In "Relics," a 1918 response to Bolshevik desecration of the relics of Russian saints, Bulgakov develops a comprehensive theology of holy relics, connecting them with the Incarnation and showing their place in sacramental theology. In "Miracles" (1932) Bulgakov presents a Christological doctrine of the Gospel miracles, focusing on the question of how human activity relates to the works of Christ
Churchly joy : Orthodox devotions for the church year by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This distinctive book contains spiritual orations and edifying discourses rooted in the Orthodox tradition.

Churchly Joy reflects Bulgakov's transcendent vision for the church and will provide spiritual growth and edification for all Christians
L'orthodoxie by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

30 editions published between 1932 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquest llibre, escrit en rus, aparegué primer en traducció francesa, el 1932, i va marcar fortamentels ambients cristians occidentals, perquè trencava un mur d'ignorància i oferia per primera vegada una visió global de la doctrina, de l'eclesiologia i de la pietat cristiana en la seva expressió ortodoxa. Malgrat la seva extensió reduïda, aquest llibre constitueix una exposició molt completa de l'essència mateixa de l'Ortodòxia. Un testimoniatge molt objectiu de la consciència religiosa ortodoxa. Aquesta traducció de Bultmann contribueix a recordar que l'Església ortodoxa vol ser present en el diàleg ecumènic de casa nostra
The Holy Grail and the Eucharist by Sergiĭ Bulgakov( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2020 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These two moving studies by the eminent Orthodox theologian and sophiologist Father Sergei Bulgakov are remarkable in many ways. The first is a unique consideration―from the point of view of Eastern Christianity―of the Holy Grail, the chalice used by Joseph of Arimathea to catch the blood and water as it flowed from Jesus' side when it was pierced on the Cross by the spear of Longinus. This moment is described in John 19:34. Bulgakov's essay is a "dogmatic exegesis" of this passage in which, with astounding passion and precision, he reveals that the Earth itself and hence the human universe is the Grail wherein Christ lives forever. The second essay is also unique―the most important contribution to eucharistic theology by an Orthodox theologian. In the West, the meaning of the Communion bread and wine as the Christ's Body and Blood has been interpreted largely in philosophical terms deriving from Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas. Bulgakov insists on a christological and Gospel-based interpretation, one with tremendous significance for our understanding of the supernatural and sophianic nature of a world interpenetrated by the divine."
