Abstract:This is the first full length study of Paulos Mar Gregorios, an Indian Orthodox theologian who offers a creative approach to current issues in the church and theology. It explores the relationship of Christian tradition to context and change. Most tradition minded theologians make a distinction between the "Tradition" of the church (which is equated with truth) and all other traditions, which are impermanent. Traditional Western Christian claims often oppose Christian faith to the world. Mar Gregorios thought this opposition emerged from a specific Christian tradition; in other words normative Western theology is actually contextual. He argued that Christian tradition is a product of co-creation. His construction of tradition repudiates the Tradition/traditions distinction, relativizes authority, and acknowledges the relation between tradition and power. I argue it can be used as a medium for exploring humanity's relationship to transcendence and creation. I examine the development of Mar Gregorios' thought in relation to the history of the Syrian Christians in India in chapter one and in relation to his own experience in chapter two. Chapter three concerns Mar Gregorios' conception of tradition in relation to other understandings, Eastern and Western, and chapter four describes the theological anthropology that emerges from Mar Gregorios' understanding of tradition. Chapter five explores the potential contribution of Mar Gregorios' soteriology to interreligious dialogue and social ethics. I conclude by suggesting how several of Mar Gregorios' ideas--the salvation of matter, non-propositional knowledge, an apophatic approach to religions, and communal worship--have potential for missiology and ecumenism.
