CARDENAS-TAMARA, Felipe. The Ontological Root of the Environmental Crisis. The Magisterium of the Holy Patriarch Bartholomew. Theol. Xave. [online]. 2017, vol.67, n.183, pp.35-61. ISSN 0120-3649.

Based on the environmental thought of the Patriarch of Constantinople, we study the importance of considering the environmental issues and crisis in the light of a conceptualization that emphasizes the significance of the ontological argument, as a key category of meaning for environmental thought. The Patriarch Bartholomew has developed a rich environmental argument related with the theological, spiritual and religious foundations of Christianity. A rich environmental argumentation and deep meanings provided by Orthodox Theology in understanding the causes and solutions of moderm environmental issues stand out as the result of this research.

Keywords : Ontology; Orthodox Theology; Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew; Environmental Crisis; Environmental Cosmology.
