Banev, Krastu (2012) 'The ecclesiology of the Philokalia.', in The Philokalia : a classic text of Orthodox spirituality. Oxford : Oxford University Press, pp. 163-174.
The common assumption regarding the Philokalia is that, as a book concerned with the spiritual life of individual believers, it offers very little to help the overcoming of the evil of spiritual individualism and the formation of an ecclesiological conscience. Against this assumption the present paper argues that the Philokalia is a fundamentally ecclesial book.
