By Fr. Tomas Spidlík S.J.; Translated by Anthony P. Gythiel

Professor-emeritus of the Pontifical Oriental Institute at Rome, Fr. Tomas Spidlík dedicated his scholarly life to studying and teaching the theology and spirituality of the Christian East in the hope of reconciling Eastern and Western Christian traditions. In this encyclopaedic overview of Eastern spiritual teaching he has created a bridge by which Western Christians may pass over centuries of misunderstanding and obliviousness.
