I'm just beginning to wade a tad deeper into some of the theology of The Orthodox Church and was wondering if there's such a thing as a commentary on the Philokalia?

I may be out in left field, to change the metaphor, but is there such a thing?

Also, I don't see a stand alone Philokalia text in Logos. Is there such a thing that FL offers?

The Philokalia: A Classic Text of Orthodox Spirituality

Philokalia: The Eastern Christian Spiritual Texts—Selections Annotated & Explained

These are both books that will do the trick... FL has not yet got the text itself but the 5th volume has not yet been published and they may not go after it till they can offer the complete text.

I just got the first book but the 'selections...&Explained' didn't seem to offer much.

I too am looking forward to vol. 5. I have the first four in Kindle ... so far.

Thanks Dan.

I  am not aware of a large commentary on the works these two were the closest to one I could think of it know of even though they are more introductions but considering we do not even have the complete in English it may not be to surprising that scholarship on it is limited.

Just wondering if there is a Philokalia text available (not commentary) in Logos now?  I suppose the Greek text would be too much...lol :)
