This article engages Sergei Bulgakov’s doctrine of divine wisdom with key reference to the work Sophia the Wisdom of God. It is proposed that Bulgakov viewed the life of the Orthodox Church as a form of living wisely within the world. Following a general overview of his doctrine of Sophia, it is shown that Bulgakov viewed Mariology and Eucharist as key indicators of the life of wisdom within the world. The article closes with a Reformed reflection.
