MetadataShow full item record
Mysticism understood as an experience of manifestation of God’s mystery is an integral part of any religion. In Christianity, a Hesychastic spirituality begun to form in 4th century. It reached its summit in the theology of St. Gregory Palamas. Sufism, in turn, combines elements of popular piety, koranic law and tradition. In 12th century the Sufi doctrine was formalized in the teaching of Ibn Arabi and Jalaluddin Rumi. However, there are many similarities in the structure, elements and goals of the Sufi and Hesychastic religious practices. The article is an attempt at a comparative analysis of the two paths of spiritual development with an emphasis on the views and possible impacts of their main representatives.
