Book Description Paulist Pr. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 336 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.9in.The Ladder of Divine Ascent was the most widely used handbook of the ascetic life in the ancient Greek Church. Popular among both lay and monastics, it was translated into Latin, Syriac, Arabic, Armenian, Old Slavonic, and many modern languages. It was written while the author (who received his surname from this book) was abbot of the monastery of Catherine on Mount Sinai. As reflected in the title, the ascetical life is portrayed as a ladder which each aspirant must ascend, each step being a virtue to be acquired, or a vice to be surrendered. Its thirty steps reflect the hidden life of Christ himself. This work had a fundamental influence in the particularly the Hesychastic, Jesus Prayer, or Prayer of the Heart movement. Pierre Pourrat in his History of Christian Spirituality calls John Climacus the most important ascetical theologian of the East, at this epoch, who enjoyed a great reputation and exercised and important influence on future centuries. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780809123308

Book Description Paulist Press December 1982, 1982. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. Read chapter 18 of this manual, ''On Insensitivity,'' and experience honest terror; or chapter 28, ''On Prayer,'' and be reminded how limited and solitary our conception of prayer is, when we come across the following: ''Prayer is by nature a dialog and a union of man with God. Its effect is to hold the world together (emphasis ours). prayer is the mother and daughter of tears.'' The work of the seventh-century abbot of St. Catherine's Monastery on Mt. Sinai, The Ladder is probably the single most important text in the spiritual literature of Eastern Christendom. Read in monastic refectories and churches every year during Lent, The Ladder is a text of utmost seriousness and earnestness. Psychological subterfuge and self-delusion are surgically stripped away, leaving the reader two choices: run away or repent. Introduction by Bishop Kallistos Ware. Bookseller Inventory # 132585
