Gebauer, Pamela (2000) The notion of spiritual discernment found in the writings of Origen, Antony of Egypt and Ignatius of Loyola : a comparative study. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
This study compares the notion of spiritual discernment found in Origen's Peri Archôn , in Antony of Egypt's Seven Letters and in Ignatius of Loyola's Spiritual Exercises . The goal of the study is to examine some of the foundations and important contributions that each of these writers has made to the Christian Church's understanding of spiritual discernment. Some of the concepts discussed include: free will, self-knowledge, inner movements of the soul, the Holy Spirit, grace and spiritual battle. The conclusion briefly discusses the implications of these writers' contributions to our current understanding of spiritual discernment.
