St, Symeon 'the New Theologian' was a Tenth-Century Greek monk and abbot of St Mamas monastery in Constantinople. Cherished among his numerous mystical writings are his Hymns, which are of timeless value to Orthodox Christians around the world. Divine Eros: Hymns of Saint Symeon, the New theologian offer the insightful spiritual reflections of Symeon's relationship to God and to the Holy Spirit in light of Scripture and the traditions of Church Fathers. These are well suited for devotional reading and made all the more meaningful by the beauty of their expression.
