Author(s):   Dorotheos of Gaza
Publisher:   Cistercian Publications (1978)
Format:   Paperback
Copies:   1 copy available
Product Info:   A shrewd observer, a master psychologist, an accomplished raconteur, Dorotheos is also a learned man with a prodigious capacity for assimilating in an organized harmony the wisdom of his precedessors in the life of the Spirit. Yet he is far more interested in humbly serving his brethren than in discoursing about the recondite aspects of the hescyhast experience. His genial candor makes him the ideal spiritual master to introduce modern readers to the rich spiritual universe of the deserts of Egypt, Palestine, and Syria. His writings are recommended for beginners in the Christian spiritual life by many saints and fathers or the Church.
