    Olivier Clement : An Orthodox Theologian Who Bridges East and West
    Source: Mosaic, newsletter of the Church of Greece

    French lay Orthodox theologian Olivier Clement, one of the standout promoters of East-West dialogue among Christians.
    Clement was born in France's Languedoc region, a land of Cathar roots and anti-Catholic prejudices. At age 20, he began a spiritual journey that led him briefly to Protestantism, which he considered too "dry," and too remote from the wonder of a "young pagan" before the splendor of nature and Mediterranean culture. His fascination with the East led him to discover Russian author Vladimir Lossky. In the latter's essay on the Eastern Church's mystical theology (originally published as Essai sur la theologie mystique de l'Église d'Orient. Paris, 1944), Clement discovered the mystery of the Trinity and the Fathers of the Church ) Clement is the author of more than 30 books. The Pope asked him to write the texts for meditation for the 1998 Good Friday Via Crucis held in Rome's Colosseum.
