Please be sure to sign your posts, and please don't assume that information is inaccurate simply because you are unaware of it. I have seen multiple references to the Saint's translation of the work in question. One citation is Metropolitan [[Kallistos Ware]], "St Nikodimos and the ''Philokalia''", in ''Mount Athos the Sacred Bridge: The Spirituality of the Holy Mountain'' (2005). The Metropolitan writes: "In addition to the ''Combattimento Spirituale'' of Scupoli, Nikodimos produced a Greek edition of the ''Spiritual Exercises'' of Ignatius Loyola, using the expanded version of Gianpetro Pinamonti. Nikodimos's widely respected work on confession, ''Exomologitarion'', is also for the most part a direct translation of two books by another Roman Catholic writer, Paulo Segneri, ...." (p. 91). --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] 07:40, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
 
Ah, I see. Did not make such assumption, Fr. Lev. Did you know that this western source hypothesis for the Exomologetarion has been debunked? Check out the introduction to its english translation by Fr. George Metallinos, who mentions this fact and the scholar that did this. It is good to know you found a source, though.
