Product Description

The writings of Pseudo-Macarius, a Syrian monk of the 4th century whose identity is still the subject of scholarly investigation, bring to Western Christianity a holistic "heart" spirituality to complement the "head" spirituality of the West. These fifty homilies reveal the typical traits of Eastern Christian asceticism and Pseudo-Macarius' Great Letter discusses the purging of the passions to bring the Christian into a state of tranquility and humble prayer.
