Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gregory Palamas (1296-1359) was a monk of Mount Athos in Greece and later the Archbishop of Thessaloniki known as a preeminent theologian of Hesychasm. The teachings embodied in his writings defending Hesychasm against the attack of Barlaam are sometimes referred to as Palamism, his followers as Palamites. Palamas is venerated as a Saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church. Though he is not widely venerated in the Roman Catholic Church, he is recognised as a saint and liturgically commemorated by the Eastern Catholic Churches of the Byzantine rite, which are in communion with Rome. Some of his writings are collected in the Philokalia. The second Sunday of the Great Lent is called the Sunday of Gregory Palamas in those Churches that commemorate him according to the Byzantine Rite. He also has a feast day on November 14.show more
