Description:

In Eastern religious terminology, including Romanian Orthodoxy, the word isihia is taken from the Greek κοινη; In Western writings and works as well as in ancient Greek dictionaries, the equivalent term is slightly different, namely hesychia. There are, therefore, at stake two words that could create some confusion – words that refer to one and the same spiritual reality, theorized by some prominent representatives of Eastern theology. The two words are hesychasm (a term specific to the works of Western authors) and hesychasm (a term used in the Byzantine philal tradition). Of course, we will conform to this tradition, using graphics and pronunciation specific to the writings of the East, appreciating, however, that the clarification made its purpose, to remove any confusion from some readers who would confront the writings on hesychasm and ancient Greek dictionaries. . To the above we need to make a few more clarifications. The phonetic-semantic differences between the two words are due to changes that occurred between the Greek language (actually the Attic dialect) spoken in the time of Plato and Aristotle and that of the era of Parakairos Hellenism.
