The Metallinos quote is from his introduction to the ''Exomologetarion''. He continues the quote, "because at this stage (Nicodemus) operated freely within the parameters of hagiographical and Patristic language and tradition." This is rich. The Anselmian language isn't Patristic, and Metallinos' argument boils down to N uses Aneelmian language but he doesn't mean it. And where in "Patristic language and tradition" does one find the practice of indulgences that N engaged in? I'm the one who has been putting citations into this article. I'd like to see a citation for Larchet, for example. The only one is to an article about personhood and referring to texts by the Cappadocians and Maximus the Confessor -- his critique of Yannaraa' approach refers to patristic texts, not modern Catholic texts such as the ones Nicodemus used. This does nothing to explain away Nicodemus adoption of Aneelmian language (and theology). All in all, the article (miss the critical comments about Western influence) just read like a hagiographical puff piece, an not an encyclopedia article. --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] ([[User talk:Fr Lev|talk]]) 14:25, July 30, 2018 (UTC)
I removed the Larchet article as I was able to obtain a copy and, as I suspected, it doesn't even mention Nicodemus. It has to do with Larchet's disagreements with how Yannaras, Zizioulas, and others handle deal with the Cappadocians and Maximus Confessor "on the relationship of personalism and existentialism." Yannaras is mentioned exactly twice in the article -- once in the opening paragraph and once in a footnote, both times along with Zizioulas. --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] ([[User talk:Fr Lev|talk]]) 16:09, August 1, 2018 (UTC)
