Abstract

Orthodox theology proposes an ontology of complete personhood, experienced through loving relationships with others and with God through the Church, mediated through the doxological experience of the Trinity. This thesis suggests that the Orthodox Church thus has a unique and therapeutic calling with rich possibilities for pastoral and practical application.
