Gregory Palamas (1296–1359) was a monk of Mount Athos in Greece and later the archbishop of Thessaloniki, known as a preeminent theologian of Hesychasm. The teachings embodied in his writings defending Hesychasm against the attack of Barlaam are sometimes referred to as Palamism, and his followers as Palamites. Palamas is venerated as a Saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church.


  • The soul completely dominated by its desire for spiritual instruction is never sated.

Anyone who considers himself guilty before God and repents must believe that the reproach and contempt of others towards him is just and to be endured. (From The Homilies, Mount Tabor Publishing pg. 13).
