Preface by John L. Mina

A volume of The Classics of Western Spirituality: A Library of the Great Spiritual Masters

“The writings of the great fifteenth-century Russian spiritual master Nil Sorsky form a high peak in a tragic but also verdant and seminal period in the history of Byzantine Christendom. [...]Battered from both West and East ‘for their sins,’ [...]Byzantine Christians still found within themselves the creative impulses to initiate a spiritual, artistic, and even political revival, at the forefront of which, along with some remarkable rulers, stood farsighted patriarchs, metropolitans, and learned monks. The inspiration for this renewal, as well as the religious and cultural will to resist the intruders, came, in great part, from a spiritual-ascetic movement known as hesychasm.”
