SVS Press: New Translations of “On the Incarnation” and “Works of the Spirit”

On the Incarnation, a new translation and introduction by Archpriest John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir's Seminary;
 Preface by C.S. Lewis

Composed by St. Athanasius in the fourth century, this theological classic expounds with simplicity the theological vision defended at the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople: that the Son of God himself became "fully human, so that we might become god". Its influence on all Christian theology thereafter, East and West, ensures its place as one of the few "must read" books for all who want to know more about the Christian faith.

Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Press offers this new translation, with a full introduction, in two formats, in English or with facing Greek text.

Works on the Spirit, by Athanasius the Great and Didymus the Blind,
A new translation by Mark DelCogliano, Andrew Radde-Gallwitz, & Lewis Ayres.

In the second half of the fourth century the Mystery of the Holy Spirit was the subject of fierce debate. Those who fought against the Nicene Creed opposed the idea that the Spirit was God. Even some of those willing to accept the equality of the Father and the Son saw the Spirit as more angelic than divine.

The first great testament to the Spirit's divinity—showing how the Spirit creates and saves inseparably with the Father and the son—is St. Athanasius' Letters to Serapion. Only a few years later, Didymus the Blind penned his own On the Holy Spirit,which is here translated into English for the first time. For Didymus, the Spirit transforms Christians by drawing them into the divine life itself, and must therefore be one with the Father and Son.
