Vladimir Nikolayevich Lossky

Born: June 8 [O.S. May 26] 1903; Göttingen, Lower Saxony, Germany
Died: 7 February 1958; Paris, France

Vladimir Lossky was an influential Orthodox Christian theologian in exile from Russia. His father, Nikolai Lossky, was professor of philosophy.

Vladimir Lossky emphasized theosis as the main principle of Orthodox Christianity.

The Church is the center of the universe

The Church is the center of the universe, the sphere in which its destinies are determined. All are called to enter into the Church, for if man is a microcosm, the Church is a macro-anthropos, as St. Maximus says.[*] It increases and is compaunded in history, bringing the elect into its bosom and uniting them to God. The world grows old and falls into decay, while the Church is constantly rejuvenated and renewed by the Holy Spirit who is the source of its life. At a given moment, when the Church has attained to the fullness of growth determined by the will of God, the external world, having used up its vital resources, will perish. As for the Church, it will appear in its eternal glory as the Kingdom of God. It will then stand revealed as the true foundation of the creatures raised up in incorruptibility to be united to God who will be all in all.
