Union and Distinction in the Thought of St Maximus the Confessor presents the writings of a key figure in Byzantine theology in the light of the themes of unity and diversity.

It can be summarized as: Things united remain distinct and without confusion in an inseparable union. As Melchisedec Toronen shows, this master theme also resonates in contemporary theological and philosophical discussions.
