Summary/Abstract: If there is an author with whom all the volumes of the dominant philosophical style in Byzantium can be covered at a high level, if we want to enter this style through the work of a single philosopher, his name without any doubt is Maximus the Confessor. In every aspect - in a meaningful, structural and methodological perspective - he should be regarded as the father of Byzantine philosophy and of Byzantine theology in general, so his significance for the East is comparable only to Augustine's importance for Western culture.
