Four Hundred Texts on Love
St. Maximos the Confessor
This offering, Four Hundred Texts on Love, is the second installment in the Philokalia Project, and is the most famous of the works of St. Maximos the Confessor. Here St. Maximos expounds the very essence of the Christian life - the way of love. He provides soul nourishment and direction in the imitation of Jesus Christ for both novices and the most experienced believers. This text in the Philokalia has been cherished by believers for over a millennium, and is offered with a special introduction by His Grace, Bishop Maxim, Hierarch of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an internationally renowned patristics scholar and Maximologist.
