A phenomenological turn of the Orthodox theology
Christina M. Gschwandtner, professor of philosophy at Fordham University, New York, is a specialist in the dialogue between phenomenology and theology, holding both a doctorate in philosophy– about Jean-Luc Marion – and one in Orthodox theology (led by Andrew Louth). He has published three books on Marion’s thinking and a book on the new philosophical apologetics, in addition to numerous articles in highly prestigious journals, enjoying international recognition. The new editorial that bears his signature, Welcoming Finitude: Toward a Phenomenology of Orthodox Liturgy (New York: Fordham University Press, 2019), goes a step further and argues in favor of an even closer meeting between the two fields, offering an excellent phenomenology of the Holy Liturgy, from an Orthodox perspective.
