— About the Book —

St. Nikodim (Nikodemos) was one of the main figures in the monastic revival on Mt. Athos in the second half of the eighteenth century. He is perhaps best known as the compiler of "The Philokalia" and the author of "Unseen Warfare." This edition offers a collection of chapters from his classic work "The Spiritual Exercises", translated into English from a Russian edition. It provides a series of meditations on questions touching on man's salvation and the pursuit of human perfection. 

— Author Biography —

Venerable Nikodim (Nikodemos) of the Holy Mountain (1749-1808) is one of the most well known Greek saints of recent times.  Having received an excellent education he entered monasticism on the Holy Mountain, where he labored in asceticism for many years, fighting for the purity of Church tradition.

The works of St. Nikodim are distinguished by their multifaceted character.  From his pen came the collections of patristic works known as the “Philokalia” and “Evergetinos,” commentaries on the psalms, the epistles, and the Church canons and liturgical texts; ascetic and polemical works, lives of the Greek new martyrs, and other works as well.
