Saint Symeon the New Theologian

translated by: Monk Mitrofan Hilandarac

pages: 157-162

Abstract

The Author has translated the poetic „Hymns” of St. Symeon and through them captured the exceptional mystical experience of the Saint. Especially the visibilitiy of the Uncreated Light and the Uncreated Beauty of God.

These hymnic effusions are in fact confessions of a Theologian who met and saw God face to face. Such a lyrical theology replenishes our mind much more than a dry way of Scholastic thinking.
