SUMMARY

St Gregory Palamas, a fourteenth-century Byzantine saint and church father, incorporated traditional Eastern monastic spirituality into a comprehensive theological vision. His understanding of hesychasm, the monastic movement centered on solitude and unceasing prayer - in particular, prayer of the heart - is grounded in an incarnational theology. This volume on Orthodox spirituality traces the development of Christian mysticism from the desert fathers through the patristic tradition to Byzantine hesychasm and its heritage in Russian monasticism. "...a most useful short history of hesychasm, built up around one central historical crisis." - George Every, Eastern Churches Review. "...A masterful introduction to Eastern spirituality centered on Gregory Palamas. The translations are in clear, vigorous English; the illustrations numerous and pertinent." - Leo D. Davis S.J., Theological Studies. Other books on Spirituality published by St Vladimir's Seminary Press include: The Desert A City, by Derwas Chitty; From Glory to Glory: Texts from Gregory of Nyssa's Mystical Writings, by Jean Danielou; The Jesus Prayer and Orthodox Spirituality by a Monk of the Eastern Church (Lev Gillet); The Communion of Love, by Matta El-Maskeen; Unseen Warfare by Lorenzo Scupoli; and His Life is Mine, by Sophrony Sakharov.Meyendorff, John is the author of 'St. Gregory Palamas and Orthodox Spirituality', published 1974 under ISBN 9780913836118 and ISBN 0913836117.
