Orthodox Theology: An Introduction

   
Vladimir Lossky
Translated by Ian and Ihita Kesarcodi-Watson

“Authentic gnosis is inseparable from a charisma, an illumination by grace which transforms our intelligence. And since the object of contemplation is a personal existence and presence, true gnosis implies encounter, reciprocity, faith as a personal adherence to the personal presence of God Who reveals Himself. In the strict sense, among the ascetics of the Christian East gnosis constitutes the peak of the life of prayer—a peak where gnosis is given by God to man ‘who knows himself fallible,’ says Evagrius, and transforms his indigence in an unfolding of faith. We know Evagrius’s formula, which has become an adage: ‘The one who has purity in prayer is true theologian, and the one who is true theologian has purity in prayer.’”
—“Prologue: Faith and Theology”
