How does this translation compare to that of the Holy Transfiguration Monastery's? Is it good/accurate?
 
I hope you guys enjoy this great spiritual treatise during this blessed Lenten season!

Pray for me,
Severian

My advice to all of you would be to download it just in case the link expires.

Isn't this the HTM version?

I perused the copy provided above and the HTM Ladder in hand and they seem to be the same.  HTM did make revisions if I recall.

As early as the eighth word of the translation, there are differences between this and HTM's. 

Regardless, a great resource.  Thanks for posting it, Severian.

Awesome! Thank you for the link!
Please correct me if I'm wrong - I'm still learning as I go along.

^No problem.

I thought I'd do a Thread resurrection! to encourage you guys to (re)read it during the upcoming Lenten season.

God bless.
