Hieromonk Irinej (Bulović)

A commentary on the Jesus Prayer by St. Mark of Ephesus

pages: 89-93


In the introduction the translator calls our attention to an important but yet unpublished text of St. Mark, Metropolitan of Ephesus, preserved in three manuscripts of the 15 th and 16 th centuries. They contain the Saint's explanation of the short but deep words of the well known hesychaste Jesus Prayer.

Subsequently he calls our attention to the little known spiritual-ascetic side of the theological image of St. Mark Eugenikos. At the end he gives a Serbian translation of the text from the Greek original.
