Zizioulas took up a post at the University of Athens in as Assistant Professor of Church History, and then six years later, worked as Professor of Patristics at the University of Edinburgh from until He moved to the University of Glasgow where he held a personal chair in systematic theology for some fourteen years.

In , he was elected titular metropolitan of Pergamon. In the same year, he assumed a full-time academic post at Thessaloniki School of Theology as Professor of Dogmatics. Theology[ edit ] The theological work of Metropolitan John has focused upon the twin themes of ecclesiology and theological ontology.

Zizioulas has also been significantly influenced by the ascetical theology of Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov , [4] founder of the Stavropegic Monastery of St John the Baptist in Essex , England. Here Metropolitan John develops critically the eucharistic ecclesiology of Nikolai Afanassief.

Finally, Zizioulas advocates an episcopocentric understanding of Church structure, understanding the Bishop primarily as the president of the Divine Liturgy and the Eucharistic community. Theological ontology[ edit ] Zizioulas worked on the theology of the person , appealing to the work of St Irenaeus and St Maximus the Confessor.

The primary focus of his work was to develop his own ontology of personhood derived from an extensive investigation of Greek philosophy, patristic era writings and modern rationalist philosophy.

However, an essential component of the ontology of personhood is the freedom to self-affirm the participation in relationship. He continues that man initially exists as a biological hypostasis, constrained as to the types of relationships one can have biological and to the eventual end of this type of being - death.

He makes use of existentialist philosophers and novelists, notably the French absurdist writer Albert Camus , to show that the only type of ontological freedom in the biological hypostasis is the choice to commit suicide. He claims that Baptism constitutes an ontological change in the human, making them an ecclesial hypostasis , or a person.

Being as Communion: Studies in Personhood and the Church

The emphasis placed on the words "outside Himself" is particularly important, since it signifies that love as ekstasis gives rise not to an emanation in the neoplatonic sense, but to an otherness of being which is seen as responding and returning to its original cause. In Maximus this idea receives a more complete and definite treatment, because his approach is not ultimately related to cosmology, as in Dionysius, but to the trinitarian being of God. Its development leads to the theology of St. Gregory Palamas. The intention behind this distinction was to safeguard the otherness between Creator and creation: see P. Sherwood, op.
