St. Maximus the Confessor (580–662), was a major Byzantine thinker, a theologian and philosopher. He developed a philosophical theology in which the doctrine of God, creation, the cosmic order, and salvation is integrated in a unified conception of reality. Christ, the divine Logos, is the center of the principles (the logoi) according to which the cosmos is created, and in accordance with which it shall convert to its divine source.
