Item No. 006150
This book is the first-ever English translation from the Greek with notes by the V. Rev. Father Daniel M. Rogich, PhD, of the critical text of the Enkomion to the Life of our Father among the Saints Gregory Palamas, by Saint Philotheos Kokkinos. It includes an historical and literary introduction and detailed notes, tracing the Saint’s personal journey, struggle and victory for Orthodox true piety. Dr. Rogich is a master translator of all forms of the Greek language as well as an Orthodox theologian who has written extensively on the teachings of Gregory Palamas and hesychasm. Three of his books, Treatise on the Spiritual Life by Saint Gregory; Becoming Uncreated: The Journey to Human Authenticity; and The Friend of God: A Manual of the Jesus Prayer, all explicate the intricate doctrines of the Jesus Prayer and its practice. This book will be a classic for years to come for those who wish to study the life and era of Gregory Palamas, in this first-ever life written by Gregory’ closest friend and Saint, Philotheos Kokkinos.
