Publishers Description
"The Philokalia "is a collection of texts written between the fourth and the fifteenth centuries by spiritual masters of the Orthodox Christian tradition. First published in Greek in 1782, then translated into Slavonic and later into Russian, "The Philokalia" has exercised an influence in the recent history of the Orthodox Church far greater than that of any book apart from the Bible. It is concerned with themes of universal importance: how man may develop his inner powers and awake from illusion; how he may overcome fragmentation and achieve spiritual wholeness; how he may attain the life of contemplative stillness and union with God.
Compiled by Bishop Kallistos Ware
The fourth volume of "The Philokalia"
Volumes I through III are also available.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Refreshment  Feb 8, 2008
Philokalia is a refreshing read for Western Christians. Surely the concept of serenity is one we can find worth exploring and softly pursuing.
 
Holy Wisdom  Dec 3, 2007
Sublime wisdom from monastic Saints that reveals a penetrating depth of knowledge regarding the human heart and mind that is very much relevant for today. Nevertheless, the wisdom needs to be read within the faith context of the monks and the broader context of the spiritual life they led to allow its full application to be understood and realised in one's own life.
 
WOW!  Oct 1, 2007
Timeless and precious to the Orthodox Faith. If you want to delve into the mystical aspects of the Orthodox Faith, this will get your toes wet. If you want to pursue reading this text, you will have a few more volumes to purchase, but well worth the investment. Enjoy!
 
Worth waiting for!  Aug 6, 2007
Excellent text of the writings of the early Christians. I'd recommend it, and the rest of the series, to anyone who wants to know how the Church started and what it actually believed.

My only problem with the order was that it took so long to arrive. It was one delay after another.
 
The Philokalia VOLUME 4  Nov 3, 2006
I thought I was purchasing the Philokalia Volume 1 that got from the library but I noticed the one I got from this site was Volume 4. Needless to say through the course of time between the volumes the true meaning displayed in the first volume was not carried over in volume 4. Volume 1 was in line with the Bible whereas Volume 4 had blatent discrepancies to the point I'm going to throw it away. I searched this site again for the Philokalia Volume 1 but didn't find it. Do you know where I can get it?
