Gschwandtner analyzes similarities between “cosmic liturgies” described by, respectively, Jean-Louis Chrétien and various Eastern Orthodox theologians. The Eastern Orthodox concept of human priesthood on behalf of creation—as opposed to the Western idea of human kingship of stewardship—appears to offer us a more ecologically sound interprestation of the human claim to be made imago dei. For example, Johan Zizioulas argues that the imago dei is essentially creative characteristic, a calling that establishes our own uniqueness.
