Hesychia and Theology
The Context for Man’s Healing in the Orthodox Church
In this book, entitled “Hesychia and Theology: The Context for Man’s Healing in the Orthodox Church”, seventeen texts are published which make clear how indispensable for the knowledge of God is the hesychastic and neptic Tradition of the Church, as presented in the writings and teaching of the holy Fathers. Heyschia, as a method and means for healing man’s soul, is the way along which every Christian must inevitably pass to reach communion with God. The knowledge of God, in other words theology, is the fruit of hesychia, and constitutes man’s salvation.
The book is dedicated by the author to three recent Elders who “received, preserved and handed on the Sacred Tradition entrusted to them”, Father Paisios the Hagiorite, Father Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia and Father Sophrony the Hesychast, who lived the Mystery of the Cross and Resurrection of Christ, and suffered, learnt and taught.
After the author`s preface, instead of an introduction, excerpts are quoted from the theology of Father John Romanides, referring to prayer and Orthodox theology.
