This study of Orthodox spirituality traces the development of Orthodox mysticism from the desert fathers through the patristic tradition to Byzantine hesychasm and its heritage in Russian monasticism. It shows how the work of Palamas, Archbishop of Thessalonica in the 14th century, trancends the limits of one school of spirituality and renews in its deepest essence the life of the Christian mystery.
