FOUR DESERT FATHERS: PAMBO, EVAGRIUS, MACARIUS OF EGYPT AND MACARIUS OF ALEXANDRIA

Author: #: 10248
Pambo, Evagrius, Macarius of Egypt and Macarius of Alexandria, the four fathers presented in this volume, were well-known in Alexandria and Lower Egypt some 1600 years ago. Their lives, brought to fame by Palladius` Lausiac History, provide valuable insight into the Egyptian monastic communities of the fourth century and into the saintly tradition of the Coptic Church. This volume serves as a companion volume to St Macarius the Spiritbearer, also published by St. Vladimir`s Seminary Press, which features further insight into Macarius of Egypt.

ON THE MYSTICAL LIFE - THE ETHICAL DISCOURSES: (VOL. I) THE CHURCH AND THE LAST THINGS

Author: ST SYMEON THE NEW THEOLOGIAN #: 10249
St Symeon the New Theologian was abbot of the monastery of St Mamas in Constantinople at the turn of the eleventh century. He was also perhaps the most remarkable and certainly the most forceful advocate of the mystical experience of God in the history of the Byzantine Church. Though they were on occasion suppressed by ecclesiastical authorities wary of his fierce enthusiasm, as well as his claims to charismatic authority, St Symeon`s writings survived in the Orthodox Church and continued to play a vital role in the several renewals of spiritual life and prayer which has sustained the Church in its often difficult history over the past millennium.

ON GOD AND CHRIST: THE FIVE THEOLOGICAL ORATATIONS AND TWO LETTERS TO CLEDONIUS

Author: ST GREGORY OF NAZIANZUS #: 10251
Gregory of Nazianzus, "The Theologian," was recognized among the Cappadocian Fathers as a peculiarly vivid and quotable exponent of the doctrine of God in Trinity. A brilliant orator and accomplished poet, he placed before the Church his interpretation of the sublime mystery of the God revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These five sermons, probably delivered as a series at the small chapel of the Resurrection in Constantinople, where Gregory was the bishop in charge of loyal “Nicenes,” contain Gregory`s penetrating teaching. The English translation aims to capture for the present-day reader something of the atmosphere of intellectual excitement and spiritual exhilaration experienced by his first listeners. In addition, this work contains a new translation of Gregory`s letters to Cledonius, which contain more focused reflections on the person of Jesus Christ, laying the groundwork for later Christology.

THE FATHERS SPEAK

Author: #: 10252
As we Christians of the twentieth century study the Fathers of the Church, their writings (often, in an unreadable English produced by clumsy translators) appear to us as foreboding, verbose, and somewhat closed within a world where theological contemplation replaces everyday reality. The Greek Fathers in particular have this reputation among students because they wrote relatively little about themselves, about the detail of their own lives and the circumstances of daily life.

THOUGHTS FOR EACH DAY OF THE YEAR: ACCORDING TO THE DAILY CHURCH READINGS FROM THE WORD OF GOD

In the present book, Thoughts for Each Day of the Year, St. Theophan takes us through the yearly cycle of Gospel and Epistle readings, humbly and reverently offering us brief but powerful daily meditations on the word of God. He also addresses the problems of his day—lack of faith, coldness of heart, trust in the rational mind rather than in the revealed Truth of God—which are problems of our day as well.
