Maximos the Confessor
- Christ is Risen! + Truly He is Risen
The commandments, the doctrines, the faith: these are the three objects of the Christian’s philosophy. The commandments separate the intellect from the passions; the doctrines lead it to the spiritual knowledge of created beings; and faith to the contemplation of the Holy Trinity.
