presented here -- apophatic theology as a positive experience; the hesychast method of prayer and the transformation of the body; deification in Christ; the uncreated Glory; the essence and energies of God -- really not only describe the work itself, but also the very contours of Orthodox theology.

Introduction by John Meyendorff, preface by Jaroslav Pelikan.
