Gregory Palamas – Wikipedia
He served for a short time as Abbot of the Esphigmenou Monastery but was forced to resign in due to discontentment regarding the austerity of his monastic administration. In the third Triad, Palamas refuted Barlaam’s charge of Messalianism by demonstrating that the hesychasts did not share the antisacramentalism of the Messalians nor did they claim to physically see the essence of God with their eyes. Wishing to devote himself more fully to prayer and asceticism he entered a skete called Glossiawhere he taught the ancient practice of mental prayer known as “prayer of the heart” or hesychasm.
A series of anathemas were pronounced against Barlaam, Akindynos and their followers; at the same time, a series of acclamations were also declared in favor of Gregory Palamas and the adherents of his doctrine. In response to this second triad, Barlaam composed the treatise “Against the Messalians” linking the hesychasts to the Messalians and thereby accusing them of heresy.
However, since the conflict with Barlaam had not been settled at that point, the people of Thessalonica did not accept him, and he was forced to live in a number of places. According to Aristeides Papadakis, “all Orthodox scholars who have written on Palamas — Lossky, Krivosheine, Papamichael, Meyendorff, Christou — assume his voice to be a legitimate expression of Orthodox tradition.
A series of six patriarchal councils were held in Constantinople on 10 JuneAugust4 November1 February8 Februaryand 28 May to consider the issues.
In earlythe monastic communities of Mount Athos wrote the Hagioritic Tome under the supervision and inspiration of Palamas. The assembly, influenced by the veneration in which the writings of Pseudo-Dionysius were held in the Eastern Church, condemned Barlaam, who recanted. Despite the Emperor’s ambitions for him, Gregory, then barely twenty years old, withdrew to Mount Athos in the year and became a novice there in the Vatopedi monastery under the guidance of the monastic Elder St Nicodemos of Vatopedi.
Part of a series on the. Kallistos I and the ecumenical patriarchs who succeeded him mounted a vigorous campaign to have the Palamist doctrines accepted by the other Eastern patriarchates as well as all the metropolitan sees under their jurisdiction. After the demise of the Elder Nicodemus, Gregory spent eight years of spiritual struggle under the guidance of a new Elder, Nicephorus.
Although the civil war between the supporters of John VI Kantakouzenos and the regents for John V Palaeologus was not primarily a religious conflict, the theological dispute between the supporters and opponents of Palamas did play a role in the conflict.

For example, the metropolitan of Kiev, upon receiving tomes from Kallistos that expounded the Palamist doctrine, rejected it vehemently and composed a reply in refutation. The Emperor himself took part in the raising and education of the fatherless boy and hoped that the gifted Gregory would devote himself to government service, but Palamas chose monastic life on Mt.

The Triads were written in three stages. The Byzantine Synodikon of Orthodoxy also celebrates his memory and theology while condemning his opponents, including some anti-Palamites who flourished after Gregory’s grigoe.
During this period, it became the norm for ecumenical patriarchs to profess the Palamite doctrine upon taking possession of their see. Gregory’s mother Kalloni and siblings Theodosios, Makarios, Epicharis, and Theodoti would also embrace monasticism, and the entire family was canonized by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in The Cathedral is in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Martin Jugie states that the opposition of the Latins and the Latinophrones, who were necessarily hostile to the doctrine, actually contributed to its adoption, and soon Latinism and Antipalamism became equivalent in the minds of many Orthodox Christians.
Similar acts of resistance were seen in the metropolitan sees that were governed by the Latins as well as in some autonomous ecclesiastical regions, such as the Church of Cyprus.
