English translation by Katherine Ilachinski
“Ladder” of Saint John of the Ladder was published in Hong Kong in Chinese language
First published in the Chinese language is one of the fundamental books on the ascetic practices of the Orthodox Church – “The Ladder” by Reverend John Climacus, abbot of Mount Sinai. Chinese translation of this pearl of Christian asceticism is made by the Institute of Sino-Christian Studies, assisted by the Orthodox Brotherhood of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul in Hong Kong. The publication of this book will answer the growing interest among Chinese scholars and Chinese Christians in the ascetic tradition of the Orthodox Church, its patristic heritage.
