Counsels on the Spiritual Life

   
Mark the Monk
Volume 1 Translated, with Notes and Introduction, by Tim Vivian
Volume 2 Translated, with Notes and Introduction, by Tim Vivian and Augustine Casiday
Foreword by the Rt Rev Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

Number 37 of Popular Patristics Series

“The brief works here translated are the only known legacy of St Mark the Monk. Mark is known to the modern reader, if he is known at all, as the author of three works found in St Nikodimos the Hagiorite’s Philokalia: ‘Letter to the Monk Nicholas,’ ‘On the Spiritual Law’ and ‘On Those Who Think They are Justified by Their Works.’ But Mark is traditionally ascribed a total of eleven writings and it is unfortunately the case that only a relatively small number of scholars are familiar with his corpus as a whole. This situation is regrettable, because Mark’s writings are valuable for their spiritual counsels no less than for their theological insight and historical interest. The aim of this translation is therefore to make Mark’s complete works accessible in English.”
