The Philokalia is an important collection of writings by Fathers of the Eastern Church dating from the fourth to the fourteenth century. It exists in three versions: the Greek, complied in the eighteenth century; the Slavonic; and the Russian.

The Russian text, translated by St. Theophan the Recluse in the nineteenth century, is the most complete of all three versions, and is the source of this English translation, which presents selections that deal with the Jesus Prayer.
