Contemporary scholarship recognizes in Maximus the Confessor a theologian of towering intellectual importance. In this book Adam G. Cooper puts to him a question which from the origins of Christian thought has constituted an interpretative crux for catholic Christianity: what is the place of the material order and, specifically, of the human body, in God's creative, redemptive, and perfective economies? While the study builds upon the insights of other efforts in Maximian scholarship, it primarily presents an engagement with the full vista of Maximus's own writings, providing a unique contribution towards an intelligent apprehension of this erudite but often impenetrable theological mind.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cooper's study...stands out as a fresh approach ... It is essential reading for anyone interested in Byzantine theological anthropology, the vexed issue of corporeality, the implications of a platonic approach to body and soul for Byzantine (and modern) theologians and Maximian studies in general. Cooper has produced an extremely well-documented and rich insight into a complex thinker whose legacy is still to be fully explored and appreciated. * Bronwen Neil, Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
This is a useful addition to a series in which work on Maximus is pleasingly seen playing an increasingly prominent role. * L.R. Wickham, The Journal of Theological Studies *
