Book Description Paulist Press March 2002, 2002. Paper Back. Condition: New. Nil Sorsky - also known as St. Nilus of Sora (1433-1508) - was a vital link between the hesychastic tradition of prayer articulated by St. Gregory Palamas and centered on Mt. Athos, and the mainstream of Russian monasticism. He was also notable for championing monastic ''non-possession'' of property, as opposed to the majority opinion of the ''Possessors,'' led by Joseph of Volokolamsk (who was, fascinatingly enough, also canonized), and he fiercely opposed the capital punishment of heretics. This is the first complete English translation of his complete works, principally The Tradition of Sketic Life. Seller Inventory # 154811
