Christos Yannaras

(Also transliterated CHRESTOS GIANNARAS)
XX/XXI Centuries
Prominent and sometimes controversial Greek theologian, noted for his attempts to re-express Orthodox truths in the language of modern philosophy, especially existentialism, and for his opposition to what he called a "dead" or "pietistic" understanding of religion by then-influential groups like the Zoë Brotherhood.
