Word about the right faith. About the Holy Trinity. About the singing of the Trisaghon
"The treatises gathered in this volume represent the Damascene synthesis on the dogma of the Holy Trinity, which the illustrious author places at the head of the general exposition of the Orthodox faith."
“Question: Where does the word God [Theos] come from?
Answer: From the radical θῶ, which means "to establish" and from ποιω, which means "to do", as the One who makes all things and as the cause of all building, or, in addition to θέω, τρέχω, from the fact that God it is everywhere. Or Θεός from θεᾶσθαι, for God saw them all before they were born, and the Lord comes from power, which means authority. "
