Philokalia

In the end, the commandments make man a God. – Peter of Damascus

The title Philokalia, or “Love of the Beautiful,” refers to the collection of texts from the monks of the Eastern Orthodox Church, a tradition that continued from the fourth to the fifteenth centuries. These monks wrote on the disciplines of prayer and a life dedicated to God. The unswerving aim of these writers to document their devotion to God and the experience of the resistance to prayer from the lower elements of human nature provide practical guidelines for anyone wishing to learn the Art and Science of Divine Presence.
