Is anyone else interested in getting the Philokalia onto Logos? I am in the process of getting a lot of my books off the shelf and into Logos and this is one real absence for me in the Logos range. So I hope others might be interested in getting the Philokalia into Logos.

Yes ... and it's received support when suggested in the past.

Peace, Michael!                 A Blessed Christmas!             *smile*

                               Welcome to the Logos Forums, indeed!

Good news!          It's here!

Good News!             I own it!

Good News!                  You can also!

Bad News!              $21.00 American dollars ...                     It's spelled with a "c"        .......    not a "k"          *smile*

I do ... but I was thinking of the Philokalia that is a multi-volume anthology ...The Philokalia by St. Nikodimos and St. Makarios

Then, I must be the one that needs to do some "larning," eh?     *smile*

Just googled Philokalia and realise that both of you are NOT talking Origen!      Blessings

The Philokalia complete comes in four volumes, with a fifth supplementary edition. There was also a summary editions put out by Faber and Faber ("Writings from the Philokalia on Prayer of the Heart" and Early Fathers from the Philokalia".

I find the writing inspiring and feel it would be valuable for others too.

Then there is the little Russian Philokalia which I believe is now available in translation.

Blessings!                      *smile*

                   It doth appear that I would be very, very interested in the development of Philokalia - !!!           Glad for this post and will keep my eyes and heart open ....

Edit!                  The Peace of Christmas be with you on this Christmas Eve Day!             *smile*

                                   I guess Kindle would be acceptable; however, for me it would be much better in Logos!

I tried a search on Amazon.co.uk but didn't find anything particularly appealing.
Does anyone know of some other Anthology with Origen's writings, preferably a little newer, '30s or newer?
Or some translation from 2012-2014? (Considering there has been a new manuscript find just a few years back with lost works, which I think had not yet been incorporated in any translation by 2010.)

These may be as printed matter - I think I've looked through what Logos offers.

Aply!

We have been working to license the Philokalia (4 vols.) from Faber & Faber for a while now. I wish I had a better update, but it's out of my hands at this point. I pray and hope we get it soon.

Thanks for the update. Still no news of developments in Logos though?
