I am really trying to delve more seriously into Eastern theology. I would appreciate a list of good theologians to look into, but I would like lists that include very Eastern sources and very Catholic sources; please do not take offense at that dichotomy and let me explain ! What I mean by Eastern are sources that lean more towards the Orthodox understanding of things, like Fr. Schmemann and what I mean by Catholic are sources that would tend more towards Eastern theology that has been influenced by communion with Rome but not to the point of being latinized, e.g. the new Ukrainian Catechism coming out asserts the infallibility of the Pope and I believe also his universal jurisdication but at the same time approaches many other issues in a typically Eastern fashion. Thanks for the input!!

He wasn't in coomunion with Rome, but St Isaac the Syrian's works are pretty authoritative for EO Christians. I'm under the impression that he is also regarded well by Rome. You might also try looking more into hesychia, but I'm uncertain how accepting the RCC has been on it. Forgive my ignorace. I hope that this helps.

In addition to Joseph Raya, I would suggest the following as both fully Eastern and and fully Catholic:

Robert Taft
Lawrence Cross
Jack Custer
Robert Slesinski
Peter Galadza
Andrij Chirovsky

Eastern Christian Publications has produced several books by Cross, Custer and Slesinski, and we carry a number of books written by AB Raya that were originally published by Madonna House. You can find them all at our online catalog at www.ecpubs.com. [ecpubs.com.]

A little off topic, but since JLF mentioned Eastern Catholic Publications, I would like to note that my wife just gave me a copy of "Let us pray to the Lord, volume 1, Daily Office", and I have been loving it! Questions for you JLF: Is there a volume 2? Is there a Sunday "missal" that has the Divine Liturgies for the days and seasons, etc?
