Palladius was a monk from Galatia, who spent many years in the Egyptian deserts compiling the history of Christian monasticism. He went to Egypt in A.D. 388, spending three years around Alexandria... More > visiting the countless hermitages. He went inland to the Nitrian Desert where he stayed for another three years. As the settlement at Nitria continued to grow, some of the more serious ascetics found they needed more solitude and moved nine miles away into a desolate area of the desert later called Cellia. Palladius spent nine years with the Orthodox hermits there and recorded many stories about them. This volume is of inestimable value since it is an eye-witness account of the desert monastic life and spirituality of the 4th century.< Less

The Varieties of Religious Experience By William James

"The most influential book written on religion in the twentieth century." Paving the way for all modern spiritual thought, The Varieties of Religious Experience was revolutionary in its... More > view of religious life as centered not within the Church, but solely within the person. James, a vivid, subtle stylist writing for the skeptical, nonspecialist reader, was the first to define spirituality as "the feelings, acts, and experiences of individual men in their solitude."

The Varieties of Religious Experience By William James
eBook (ePub): $3.99
When William James went to the University of Edinburgh in 1901 to deliver a series of lectures on "natural religion," he defined religion as "the feelings, acts, and experiences of... More > individual men in their solitude, so far as they apprehend themselves to stand in relation to whatever they may consider the divine." He undertook a project that stands not only as one of the most important texts on psychology ever written, but for many critics one of the best works of nonfiction written in the 20th century. Reading The Varieties of Religious Experience, it is easy to see why. Applying his analytic clarity to religious accounts from a variety of sources, James elaborates a pluralistic framework in which "the divine can mean no single quality, it must mean a group of qualities, by being champions of which in alternation, different men may all find worthy missions." It's an intellectual call for serious religious tolerance indeed, respect the vitality of which has not diminished through the subsequent decades.< Less
