Sergius Bulgakov (1871-1944) is widely regarded as the twentieth century's leading Orthodox theologian. Boris Jakim is the foremost translator of Russian religiousthought into English. His published translations includeworks by S.L. Frank, Pavel Florensky, Vladimir Solovyov, and Sergius Bulgakov.
Already the most distinguished translator of Russian religious philosophy and theology in the English-speaking world, Boris Jakim has outdone himself with his translation of Bulgakov's Bride of the Lamb. Drawing on his deep understanding of modern Russian Orthodoxy and masterfully balancing the competing demands of literal and idiomatic translation, Jakim gives us a comprehensible Bulgakov without blunting the visionary enthusiasm and prophetic challenges that make Bulgakov's theology the wondrous thing that it is. Jakim has made an exceptional contribution to contemporary theological scholarship and ecumenical understanding.
