Translated by G. E. H. Palmer, Phillip Sherrard and Bishop Kallistos Ware, 220 Pages, Paperback.

A collection of writings by the monks from the fourth to fifteenth centuries, the Philokalia more than any other text reflects the Eastern Church's interpretation of the Bible's meaning. Simply translated, the title means "love of the beautiful," which reflects the text's emphasis on mystical and contemplative practices to engage all of our senses in the acts of worship and prayer.
