As part of a unified scholarly approach, Symeon, an Eastern Orthodox saint often called “The New Theologian,” collected texts describing existing traditions and relayed them to his readers in a tone of great devotion and authority and borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice.

authority and borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice
authority, and borrowed from Asia some aspects of mystical practice
authority along with the aspects of mystical practice he borrowed from Asia
authority, borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice
authority borrowing some aspects of mystical practice from parts of Asia

IMO D (good question). I was b/w C and D

As part of a unified scholarly approach, Symeon, an Eastern Orthodox saint often called “The New Theologian,” collected texts describing existing traditions and relayed them to his readers in a tone of great devotion and authority and borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice.

authority and borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice
authority, and borrowed from Asia some aspects of mystical practice (
authority along with the aspects of mystical practice he borrowed from Asia
authority, borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice
authority borrowing some aspects of mystical practice from parts of Asia

Removign stuff b/w the commas we get:

As part of a unified scholarly approach, Symeon collected texts describing existing traditions and relayed them to his readers in a tone of great devotion and authority........................................

I went with D, beacuse it was the best subordinate clause that fit well into the sentence.

Thanks for your response, the OA is D. Can you explain why it is not B? I'm still a bit confused why I cannot use the ", and borrowed"

As part of a unified scholarly approach, Symeon, an Eastern Orthodox saint often called “The New Theologian,” collected (texts describing existing traditions) and relayed them to his readers in a tone of (great devotion and authority) and borrowing from Asia some aspects of mystical practice.

A - is in the form of Symeon X and Y and Z. But the correct form is X,Y and Z. Or X and Y, Zing.
B - is in the form of X and Y, and Z. Again parallelism error.
C - tone of (great devotion) and (authority along with the aspects of mystical practice)
see the altered intent ? aspects incorrectly pointing to authority.
D - correct form. X and Y, Zing..
E - same problem as in C. tone of (great devotion) and (authority borrowing some aspects of ..) again authority is borrowing.? no. Symeon is borrowing.
D wins. Rule of parallelism. X, Y, and Z or X and Y, Zing.
