The Arena

Guidelines for Spiritual and Monastic Life

The Collected Works of St. Ignatius Brianchaninov - Volume V


    Like the sayings of the Fathers of the Egyptian desert, offered by monks to their fellow strugglers, the wisdom offered in these pages is ageless and of wide application to every aspect of life. Tradition is revealed as an appropriation of Divine Life, passed on to others by both action and word. The title given to the original English language edition The Arena has been kept as this aptly sums up its constant theme; the need for struggle if we are to progress in the spiritual life. and this struggle occurs within the arena of our own hearts as we do battle with the sin that prevents us from knowing God as He would be known.
