One of the crucial loci of the apophatic protest against Scholasticism. Abbot and spiritual director, Symeon was also a theologian of such compelling brilliance as to inherit the mantle of St. Gregory Nazianzus (''The Theologian''). He emphasized a personal experience of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and spoke winsomely concerning the ''gift of tears.'' Introduction by George Maloney, preface by Basile Krovocheine.
