by Sorsky, Nil
ix, 164 pp. "A first-time translation from Russian that invites readers to explore the influential spirituality of Nil Sorsky (d. 1508), who major contribution to Eastern Christianity was to bring to late medieval Russia the spirituality of the early desert ascetics.... This volume includes Sorsky's The Tradition, which is his earliest attempt to give his disciples a written, but very simplified, rule of the skete monasticism he had practiced on Mount Athos. The Monastic Rule is an extended ascetical treatise on what he calls "mental activity"--in mondern terms, perpetual prayer. Also here are Nil Sorsky's letters and his last will and testament."Keywords: NIL SORSKY RELIGION SPIRITUALITY RUSSIA RUSSIAN EASTERN CHRISTIANITY MEDIEVAL Ink name on front endpaper, page corners rubbed.
