Product Description

St. Symeon the New Theologian was abbot of the monastery of St. Mamas in Constantinople at the turn of the eleventh century. He was also perhaps the most remarkable and certainly the most forceful advocate of the mystical experience of God in the history of the Byzantine Church.

This third book in the series of St. Symeon's Ethical Discourses places his teachings in their proper context, both among his other writings, and with regard to the ascetical and mystical literature in the Eastern tradition. Included is a sketch of Symeon's life and times where we capture a picture of the New Theologian as a thoroughly traditional representative of the central themes in Greek patristic thought, in particular of the doctrine of deification (theosis), here summing up the Christian hope of salvation.
