I’ve posted a fair number of favorite theologians lists. However, one segment of the church that often gets neglected (for a variety of reasons) are the theologians of the Orthodox Churches. But here let us up the ante a bit. Who do people think the greatest modern Orthodox theologian was?
For my money the most significant modern orthodox theologian would have to be Sergei Bulgakov. My favorite to read on the other hand would be John Zizioulas. The most promising Orthodox theologian writing today? David Bentley Hart, of course.
And another question on Orthodox theologians: is there any such thing as a female theologian in the Orthodox tradition? Not sure I’ve ever come across one.
