Modern Orthodox Saints 12: Blessed Hermit Philaretos of the Holy Mountain

Blessed hermit Philaretos was a remarkable ascetic and mystic, comparable to the fourteenth century Byzantine mystics known as Hesychasts. He closely followed their mode of life as taught in the great classic on Orthodox spirituality entitled Philokalia and revived in the eighteenth century at the Holy Mountain by St's Macarios of Corinth and Nicodemos the Hagiorite, famous mystics known as Kollyvades. -- Backcover
