9780879077754: The Spiritual World Of Isaac The Syrian (Cistercian Studies)

From the Foreword by Kallistos Ware, Bishop of Diokleia—

Isaac the Syrian, also called Isaac of Nineveh, lived and wrote during "the golden age of Syriac Christian literature" in the seventh century. Cut off by language and politics from the Churches of the Roman Empire and branded "Nestorian," the Church of the East produced in isolation a rich theological literature which is only now becoming known to outsiders. Yet over the centuries and in all parts of Christendom, Isaac's works have been read and recommended as unquestionably orthodox.

Now, at last, to my great delight, we have at our disposal a single book in English, offering us a balanced and comprehensive overview of Isaac's life, background and teaching. Wisely, Fr. Hilarion Alfeyev has allowed Isaac to speak for himself. The book is full of well-chosen quotations, in which Isaac's true voice can be heard.

Saint Isaac of Syria was an ascetic, a mountain solitary, but his writings are universal in scope. They are addressed not just to the desert but to the city, not just to monastics but to all the baptized. With sharp vividness he speaks about themes relevant to every Christian: about repentance and humility, about prayer in its many forms, both outer and inner, about solitude and community, about silence, wonder, and ecstasy. Along with the emphasis that he places upon "luminous love"—to use his own phrase—two things above all mark his spiritual theology: his sense of God as living mystery; and his warm devotion to the Saviour Christ.

Descrizione libro Cistercian Publications Inc.,U.S. April 2004, 2004. Paper Back. Condizione libro: New. The writings of St. Isaac are ''a wonderful revelation to the world.'' Here is a saint whose tradition was officially (but not essentially) Nestorian; a saint who relied on several authorities -- Evagrios of Pontus, Diodore of Tarsus, Theodore of Mopsuestia -- who themselves were condemned by Councils at one time or another; a saint who believed in the finite duration of Gehenna, itself interpreted in terms of the love of God offered to those closed to it. A patchwork and problematic resume indeed! But you will look far to find a spiritual writer who is so universally loved, memorized, and clung to as this, by Orthodox and non-Orthodox, by monastics and layfolk. Look anywhere in his writings (which themselves have a tortuous manuscript history and only appear in English in fragmented fashion) and you will find the clear rivers of living water which our Lord promised would well up to eternal life. Like Olivier Clement did with the classic patristic period as a whole in The Roots of Christian Mysticism, the author of this book has given us a topical anthology of the essential teachings of St. Isaac, generous translations interspersed with helpful commentary. It's one of those books (like the Bible? the Philokalia? Climacus' Ladder?) to which the echo of words such as ''take off your shoes, for you are standing on holy ground'' seems to cling. 321 pp. Codice libro della libreria 135647
