The Philokalia is a collection of sacred Orthodox Christian spiritual texts written between the fourth and the fifteenth centuries. The Saints who wrote these texts were concerned with inner asceticism, ceaseless prayer, and how one may attain a life of contemplative stillness and union with God. These precious Philokalic texts are the glory of the Church, and reveal the path to spiritual sobriety, and the Prayer of the Heart. For some years Patristic Nectar Publications has provided a small portion of the whole Philokalia as audio books, with a Path of Entry guide provided by Father Maximos Constas. Today we are enthused to announce an ambitious new project to professionally record in studio the entire Philokalia, and to make it available in its entirety at PNP for free. Toward this end we have made a $40,000 recording commitment, and have received an initial $20,000 matching grant from a generous PNP supporter. Please consider making a generous donation today, and helping up provide the Philokalia to everyone absolutely free.
