First published in French in 1955, Irénée Hausherr's classic study of spiritual direction in the early Eastern Church remains the standard resource on the subject to this day. A revival of the practice of spiritual direction has always proceeded periods of spiritual growth and it is hoped that contemporary interest in this ancient discipline may be deepened through contact with the ancient abbas and ammas who shared their experience of God by 'giving a word' to their disciples.

Irénée Hausherr, SJ, (1881-1978) was a Jesuit of Alsatian origin and specialist in Greek patristic and monastic spirituality.

Reviews

Among the extensive literature dealing with spiritual direction that appears every year, this is, to our knowledge, the only comprehensive study of the subject from its source-early Christian monasticism.
