A very brief introduction to The Ambigua
By Ambigua • Issue #1 • View online
In his Ambigua, St. Maximos the Confessor tries to illuminate the writings of St. Gregory of Nazianzus. There is much in St. Gregory that is difficult to understand, or that contains a seeming contradiction, or where the interpretation is uncertain. That’s why St. Maximos’s collection of writings is often called a “book of difficulties”, or ambiguities.
This project is an effort to bring that spirit of contemplation to the quandaries of modern life. The things of God are ultimately knowable only to those who have seen and known God. That means that they will, in fact, someday be known. But it also means that they are now known only in part, through a glass, darkly.
Through a series of writings and conversations, we will be engaging some of these questions. We’d be delighted to have you contemplate these things with us.
