Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which attempts, at a basic level, a presentation of one of the more fascinating Byzantines of the fourteenth century. Demetrius Kydones is worthy of attention at many levels and the book provides sufficient material to allow scholars working in different disciplines and with different emphases to follow up aspects of his life and works likely to inform their own work. First, one of the key contentions of the book is that Demetrius must be approached first and foremost within his Byzantine setting, even when dealing with areas of his thought which are less than traditionally 'Byzantine'. Closely connected to this is a second key contention of the book: that it is important not to apply to the decades under studydecades subject to unique conditionscriteria taken from other periods, and from disparate levels of discourse, without careful consideration of their scope and evolution.

Keywords: Byzantine Orthodoxy; Demetrius Kydones
