This book examines the historical development of the blessing of waters and its theology in the East, with an emphasis on the Byzantine tradition. Exploring how Eastern Christians have sought these waters as a source of healing, purification, and communion with God, Denysenko unpacks their euchology and ritual context. The history and theology of the blessing of waters on Epiphany is informative for contemporary theologians, historians, pastors and students.

In this revised article, the original of which was given at the International Symposium “The Monotheistic Religions and Human Liberties” at the University of Constanta, Romania, Hieromonks Methody and Kirill Zinkovsky examine the various concepts of personal freedom, arguing that a full definition of freedom is impossible without the revelation of God as a unity of three Persons.
This handbook examines the history of Trinitarian theology and reveals the Nicene unity still at work among Christians today despite ecumenical differences and the variety of theological perspectives.
