Resumen

BIRZU, Vasile. The Throne of God as a prototype of primacy in the Church and in creation. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.4, pp.1-6. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i4.5424.

This study emphasises the cosmic dimensions of the Church understood as the Throne of God, analysing its understanding in this way by the great writers and thinkers of the ancient world, for example, Philo the Alexandrine, Saint Dionysius the Areopagite and Saint Irene of Lyon. The reconstitution of all the cosmological contexts and understanding of the Throne of God inspired by the texts of the ancient authors is opening a very interesting perspective over the existence of the Church as a cosmic Throne of God and reassembling of all the heavenly and intelligible creations sustained and vivified by the primal light of God transmitted in this way towards the lower degrees of the heavenly angelic and churchly hierarchy. Thus, the real source of primacy in the Church is originated, as Saint Dionysius pointed out, in the primal light of God poured over the Church. The Church as the Throne of God helps to discover the real cosmic and heavenly perspective over the heavenly power and authority, the bishops of the Churches are called frankly by God from the beginning (Rv 3:21).

Palabras clave : primacy; ecclesiology; cosmic church; cherubim; throne; heavenly liturgy.
