theosis

I thought this quote was interesting.





"The hymnology of the fourth -century Christian poet Ephrem the Syrian adds its choruses to the testimony of the liturgy. Since Ephrem wrote in Syriac and was probably ignorant of Greek, his hyms are significant refutations of the common charge that the Orthodox doctrine of theosis is only a pale imitation of Hellenistic philosophy."
page 129 copyright 1994,2003 by Daniel B. Clendenin from the book "Eastern Orthodox Christianity(second edition) A western perspective. Published by Baker Academic
