John Climacus—The Ladder of Divine Ascent

Translation by Colm Luibheid and Norman Russell
Notes on Translation by Norman Russell
Introduction by Kallistos Ware
Preface by Colm Luibheid

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

“With the exception of the Bible and the service books, there is no work in Eastern Christendom that has been studied, copied and translated more often than The Ladder of Divine Ascent by St. John Climacus. Every Lent in Orthodox monasteries it is appointed to be read aloud in church or in the refectory, so that some monks will have listened to it as much as fifty or sixty times in the course of their life. Outside the monasteries it has also been the favorite reading of countless
lay people in Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Russia, and throughout the Orthodox world. The popularity of The Ladder in the East equals that of The Imitation of Christ in the West, although the two books are altogether different in character.”
