New Theologian is two titles
Some of his writings are included in the ''[[Philokalia]]''.
* ''[http://www.myriobiblos.gr/texts/english/symeon_threeways.html The Three Ways of Attention and Prayer]''
 
==Title==
Some have taken ''New Theologian'' to mean that St. Symeon was somehow especially radical in his teachings. This is not the case, rather, these are two seperate titles. St. Symeon was, in this life, called 'Symeon the New' to distinguish him from a Symeon who was older than he; after his repose, he was given the title of Theologian and retained the 'New' distinction.
