Saint Gregory Palamas׃ The Homilies

   
Edited and translated from the original Greek with an introduction and notes by Christopher Veniamin
with the assistance of the Monastery of St. John the Baptist, Essex, England

“The present edition of Saint Gregory Palamas: The Homilies marks a most significant event in the theological and spiritual world. Saint Gregory gave to the Church what is surely the most complete synthesis and perfect formulation of the apostolic tradition of all generations. His theology, in a charismatic and ‘existential’ way, recapitulates, in its entirety, the spiritual experience of the saints of the Old and New Testaments, who, with noble spirit, appropriated and ministered to Christ’s great ‘mystery of godliness’. His word possesses a creative power, is always new, and informs the heart with grace. It stands as a radiant sign of God for every generation. Most assuredly, it imparts the veritable solution to the impasses of our generation, and leads its ‘labouring and heavy laden’ children to true knowledge of God, to the festival of love of the Trinitarian God. More specifically, the homilies of St. Gregory, in spirited and uncomplicated idiom, render his entire life’s work accessible to the people of God. In fact, they form the most complete introduction not only to his theology, but to the theology of all the great Fathers of the Church.”
