Author Quoted 
Title QuotedPhilokalia
Date (Year/Month/Day)1959/09/26
QuotationA copy of two volumes of the Philokalia sent by B. Rambusch from Athens, arrived the other day. Magnificent. I had been told it was unobtainable. A new edition - it was begun in 1957. I read it slowly and sedulously - much dictionary work.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 332
