St Gregory Palamas and Orthodox Spirituality

John Meyendorff

This richly documented and lavishly illustrated study of Orthodox spirituality traces the development of "Orthodox mysticism" from the desert fathers through the patristic tradition to Byzantine hesychasm and its heritage in Russian Monasticism. It shows how the work of Palamas transcends the limits of one school of spirituality and renews in its deepest essence̴ the life of the Christian Mystery. (Pages: 185; 12.5 x 18.5)
