Palamism is no longer confined to oriental regions, and its present importance requires a reassessment of its historical development. This volume contains a group of special essays on the subject, based on the most recent scholarship on the theology and literature of the late Byzantine period and on the centuries of Turkish domination. The authors are Antonio Rigo, Iannis Polemis, Marie-Helene Congourdeau, Martin Hinterberger and Brigitte Monrain. [Publisher's Text]
