For the Lenten Season you can download for free ‘The Ladder of Divine Ascent’ by St. John Climacus, translated by Archimandrite Lazarus Moore (Harper & Brothers, 1959). John Climacus (c. 579-649) was abbot of the monastery of Catherine on Mount Sinai. His Ladder was the most widely used handbook of the ascetical life in the ancient Greek Church.
Thank you and God bless.
thank you for allowing this to be downloaded. I went to the library this wk hoping to borrow a copy and there was nothing at all.
not that it compares with this – but I have compiled a booklet called ‘what is prayer?’ – a look at Old Testament people and what prayer was for them – 50 people, or entities.
I would send it to you if you send me an email address.
again – thank you.
