Description

New Library, Volume Four

åʉÛÏIn the present volume twenty works are discussed. The authors of these works are all monks of the Holy Mountain of Athos, and share the same views and concerns. Also, they are close to us in time. Most of them are living, and are persons I have met and interviewed. The title Messages from the Holy Mountainhas been given to this volume because all the discussion-reviews pertain to works written by monks of the Holy Mountain and contain important messages for contemporary mankind with regard to subjects such as monasticism, humanism, secularism, technological civilization, and education; states of the mind such as anguish, depression, serenity, and joy; practices such as fasting and prayer; and the spiritual attainments of virtue, holiness, and salvation.‰۝
