Chapter Summary

This is the first chapter of first section of the book, which discusses a range of topics and ideas covered by Demetrius, thus hopefully providing a balanced picture of his political and theological preoccupations. It aims to flesh out the portrait of Demetrius which is being built up, by presenting the main topics and ideas he addresses in his own writings of the period to c. 1373. Priority in this chapter is given to identifying the broad lines of Demetrius' approach, rather than to in-depth analysis of his theological arguments. Demetrius deals directly with a number of major issues, political and ecclesiastical. Moreover, he often addresses such issues head-on, tackling the problem from different angles, and with concise and clear statements of his preferred solution.
