Prayer of the heart : writings from the Philokalia : from the complete text( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Philokalia" is an itinerary through the labyrinth of time, a silent way of love and gnosis through the deserts and emptiness of life, especially modern life, a vivifying and fadeless presence. It is an active force revealing a spiritual path and inducing man to follow it. It is a summons to him to overcome his ignorance, to uncover the knowledge that lies within him, to rid himself of illusion, and to be receptive to the grace of the Holy Spirit who teaches all things and brings all things to remembrance

The meaning of icons by Léonide Ouspensky( Book )

5 editions published between 1952 and 1989 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nature of the icon cannot be grasped by means of pure art criticism, nor by the adoption of a sentimental point of view. Its forms are based on the wisdom contained in the theological and liturgical writings of the Eastern Orthodox Church and are imtimately bound up with the experience of the contemplative life. The present work is the first of its kind to give a reliable introduction to the spiritual background of this art. The introduction into the meaning and language of the icons by Ouspensky imparts to us in an admirable way the spiritual conceptions of the Eastern Orthodox Church which are often so foreign to us, but without the knowledge of which we cannot possibly understand the world of the icon." -- Back cover
