Title QuotedWisdom of God: a Brief Summery of Sophiology
Date (Year/Month/Day)1958/10/26
ImprintNew York : Paisley Press. 1937
QuotationFrom the Library of Congress I got Bulgakov's Wisdom of God which is tremendous, particularly his last chapter on the Church. I wish it were possible to get more of him. This has to go back too soon for me to think about it but I will get Fr. Bartholomew to copy the best pages and I will have them. It is certain that his teaching that the Church is the Revelation of God's Wisdom has a strong basis in Ephesians III 9-11.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 226
