Volume Two of The Philokalia: Writings of Holy Mystic Fathers in which is Explained how the Mind is Purified, Illumined, and Perfected through Practical and Contemplative Ethical Philosophy

 

“This is the second volume of translations from the Philokalia by Constantine Cavarnos, the well-known scholar, theological writer, philosopher, and Byzantinist. The first volume, also published by the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, appeared in 2008. Professor Cavarnos translated, edited, and compiled the materials for that volume from the first volume of the Greek Philokalia. It contains most of the text of the first volume of the work as it was published by St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite[...]. [...B]oth volumes set forth very complex treatises in the clear, precise, and understandable language so characteristic of his translations and writing. Not only is the integrity of the original theological terminology and the arrangement of texts appointed by St. Nicodemos preserved in these volumes[...], but the selections from volume five of the Greek Philokalia present us with readings that have not yet appeared in English translation. In essence, then, the first volume of Professor Cavarnos’ translations, The Philokalia, together with this second volume, The Philokalia: A Second Volume of Selected Readings, constitute a sort of ‘Small Philokalia,’ if you will, capturing in condensed form the wisdom and profundity of the entire collection.” —“INTRODUCTION”
