Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Transforming evagrian hesychia, with its insistence on absolute solitude, Symeon lived as the spiritual father of a bustling monastery in the very heart of Constantinople. Yet his works became, two centuries after his death, perhaps the most important inspiration for Athonite heyschasm.

Synopsis:

Symeon the New Theologian transformed the Evagrian tradition of hesychia, with its insistence on absolute solitude remote from the affairs of men, and practised it in a monastery in the very heart of Constantinople. A champion of Orthodoxy, and of monks, he composed works which became perhaps the most important source of the hesychast movement on Mount Athos two centuries after his death. Always the spiritual master rather than the systematic theologian, Symeon wrote as he had taught--from his own immediate experience.
