In the Light of Christ: St. Symeon the New Theologian - Life, Spirituality, Doctrine (Used)
by Krivocheine, Basil
Publisher: St. Vladimir's Seminary Press
Book ID: 9780913836910, 0913836915
This authoritative work gives Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022 AD), monk and later abbot of the monastery of St Mamas, the place he deserves as a spiritual renovator, the first and perhaps greatest Byzantine mystic. Drawing on Scripture and certain traditions of the Early Church, Symeon explores the theory and practice of contemplation, culminating in a direct perception of the Divine Light. Always more the spiritual master than the systematic theologian, Symeon stresses the reality of his encounter with Christ and the Holy Spirit â€” the reality of a healing, inner light.
This book, documented by many moving passages from Symeon's own writings, should attract all those seeking a spiritual awakening, a rebirth. In the Light of Christ should also be of interest to scholars, since all later Byzantine mysticism rests on the foundation laid down by Symeon the New Theologian.
Archbishop Basil Krivocheine (1900-1985) was a noted patristic scholar and theologian of the Russian Orthodox Church. His books and publications had made him one of the most eminent spokesmen for the traditions of Athonite monasticism and Orthodox theology in general.

After surviving a serious elevator crash in London, Howard G. Charing found he had developed healing touch as well as the ability to hear voices and experience visions--just as a healer in Italy had predicted only a week before the accident. He began using his abilities to heal but felt he needed more guidance and training. He first connected with a national spiritual healing organization, only to be told he was doing everything wrong. Then, through a friend, he discovered shamanism.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
