“In A Handbook of Spiritual Counsel, St. Nicodemos holds that it is in the renewed and purified heart where true theology begins and where divine knowledge and teaching spring up by the grace of God. Had St. Nicodemos acquired only the external knowledge through the memory of his mind and not the purity of his heart, he would not have been able to draw out into the light of day from the depths of his soul the spiritual gifts of God, and to express them in terms that others can find beneficial. [...]A work of such spiritual value that emanates the fragrance of the Holy Spirit is not the product of the memory of the mind alone; it is also the product of the memory of the soul imbued by God.”
—“Translator’s Foreword”
