During the past few decades the great Alexandrian whose name appears on the present volume, has received justice immemorially due, a completely new appraisal of his contribution to the Christian life and the thought of the early Church. For far too long he was ignored for the best he gave and gave so zealously, for so long he was regarded only as a philosopher or a humanist or a speculative theologian. This was made possible only by the utter neglect through the centuries of those works in which this great theologian speaks to us as a master mystic, one who has exerted tremendous influence on Christian spirituality and piety, and to whom monasticism through the ages is greatly indebted for inspiration.
