SUMMARY

Symeon the New Theologian transformed the Evagrian tradition of hesychia, with its insistence on absolute solitude remote from the affairs of men, and practised it in a monastery in the very heart of Constantinople. A champion of Orthodoxy, and of monks, he composed works which became perhaps the most important source of the hesychast movement on Mount Athos two centuries after his death. Always the spiritual master rather than the systematic theologian, Symeon wrote as he had taught--from his own immediate experience.Bell, David N. is the author of 'St. Symeon, the New Theologian : Theological and Practical Discourses and Three Theological Discourses', published 1982 under ISBN 9780879078416 and ISBN 0879078413.
