Abstract: Was Gregory Palamas a ditheist? Did he destroy God’s simplicity? We will see that the answers to both these questions are "No" and that St. Gregory Palamas's Essence-Energies distinction, properly understood, is in harmony with the dogma of Absolute Divine Simplicity. Catholic philosopher Dr. Michael Liccione vindicates the teaching of St. Gregory Palamas from accusations of ditheism and reconciles EED with the teachings of the illustrious prince of theologians St. Thomas Aquinas.
