Summary/Abstract: The reassertion of the rooting of Romanian theology into the Patristic theology cannot be considered a poncif. The 20th century represented a period of serious supply to Patristic sources, achieved through high-principled translations executed by father Dumitru Stăniloae, as well as by other translators of the Patristic text. In this presentation we shall focus on several theological elements presented in the reference paper drafted by father Constantin Galeriu and defended as a PhD thesis in 1973, Sacrifice and Redemption 1, attempting to achieve connections of certain themes approached in this paper to their reflections presents in the Patristic theology, and especially in the Theological-Homiletic work of Saint Gregory Palamas.
