[[Image:Philokalia.jpg|right|frame|Front cover of Volume 1 in English, published by Faber and Faber Ltd.]]The '''''Philokalia''''' is a collection of writings, mostly centering on practicing the [[virtues]] and spiritual living in a [[monastery]]. In recent decades it has become an important resource for Orthodox Christians, [[laity]] and [[clergy]] alike, in personal living and in some ways has achieved status as a major secondary spiritual written resource (after the primary one, [[Holy Scripture]]) along with St. [[John Climacus]]' ''The Ladder of Divine Ascent''.
