Wording: "empirical basis" and "intellectual-contemplative"[edit]

@LoveMonkey: I see some problems with the following sentence:

His theological works emphasize the empirical basis of theology called theoria or vision of God, (as opposed to intellectual-contemplative) as the essence of Orthodox theology. He identified hesychasm as the core of Christian practice and studied extensively the works of 14th-century Byzantine theologian St. Gregory Palamas.

  • Empirical means "the knowledge or source of knowledge acquired by means of the senses, particularly by observation and experimentation." That's not what Romanides means, is it? Shouldn't it be "experiential" or "noetical"?
  • Intellectual-contemplative: "intellectual" refers to intuitive understanding, attaining vision, in contrast to ratio, pure facts. Intellectual-contemplative is theoria. Or does it really mean that Romanides saw theology as an empirical science, rejecting contemplation? I don't think so.

I've changed it, and copied a note from Contemplation. Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:54, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
