The Ascetical Homilies are sublime treatises on the life of prayer and stillness - hesychasm - and have been treasured by monastics and laymen alike. Includes all the homilies by Saint Isaac in the first edition plus two newly translated from the Syriac that were omitted from the first edition. The book includes an introduction discussing what we know of the saint's life and the manuscripts of the homilies and the various translations of them, with maps, a glossary of special terms, and more. A major work of scholarship.
