Post-Patristic Theology and Ecclesiastical Patristic Experience
Post-patristic ‘theology’ leads to syncretism and scholasticism. It deviates from the theology and experience of the Church, and is a latent heresy in the Orthodox Church. It denies the Church’s hesychastic tradition and is critical of the works of the Fathers. Orthodox theology, by contrast, is based on the revelational experience of the Prophets, Apostles and holy Fathers.
The patristic period has not ended because the life of the Church continues.
