Prayer and Holiness
Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993), a Romanian Orthodox priest, was Professor of Dogmatic Theology both at Sibiu in Transylvania and at Bucharest. As a result of the publication of his version of the ‘Philokalia’ in Romanian, he was particularly associated with monastic revival in his country. He was looked to as a Christian leader during the prolonged oppression of Christians in Romania and was imprisoned 1958-63. He is becoming known increasingly in the English-speaking world, as more of his writings are translated.

In these five essays Fr Staniloae gives us the essentials of his teaching on prayer. They are the fruit not only of personal experience and long familiarity with the hesychast writings of Orthodox monasticism, but also of the spiritual tradition of his native Romania. Through the texts we are given the outline of the icon of humanity restored to God in Christ.
