Orthodox Saints & Patristic Church Fathers (211)
In the autumn of 1892 a young Russian peasant named Simeon from the province of Tambov was drawn to that ancient repository of Orthodox spirituality, Mt Athos. He had done his military service and now came to the Russian Monastery of St Panteleimon, to embark on long years of spiritual combat lasting until his death in 1938. Although he was unlearned and ignorant in the ordinary sense, tireless inner strivings gave him authentic personal experience of Christianity identical with that of many of the early ascetic Desert Fathers.

The life and the teaching of St. Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessaloniki, will set out the limits and the great difference which exists between the abstract and impersonal life of Eastern religions and the Orthodox Tradition as well as between Barlaam's scholasticism, moralism and the Orthodox spiritual life. And this is important precisely because tendencies to both the impersonal way of life (Eastern religions) and rationalism/scholasticism together with moralism (Western religions) prevail in the West today—a fact that creates a deep despair and much speculation.
