St Gregory Palamas and Orthodox Spirituality

   
John Meyendorff
Translation by Adele Fiske

“Hesychasm is a monastic movement whose origins go back to the Fathers of the desert. It cannot, indeed, claim to be the only ‘orthodox’ mysticism, which has always taken varied forms, as it still does today. But Palamas himself can be called a master of ‘orthodox mysticism’ inasmuch as his work transcends the limits of one school of spirituality and renews in its deepest essence the life of the Christian Mystery.”
—“Introduction”
