Isaac of Nineveh was a native of Bet Qatraye near present-day Bahrain on the Persian Gulf.

WISDOM FROM MT. ATHOS: THE WRITINGS OF STARETZ SILOUAN (1866-1938)

Staretz, or "elder", is a title given to Orthodox monks of particular spiritual development.

But on Mt Athos, rooted in a tradition reaching back to the very beginnings of Christian monasticism, he was taught of God and attained wisdom akin to that of the Desert Fathers.

ON MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE

Author: ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM TRANSLATED BY CATHARINE ROTH AND DAVID ANDERSON #: 10234
Christian tradition often seems to give only grudging approval to the married life, particularly its sexual aspect. In these sermons of St John Chrysostom we find an important corrective to this view. Although himself a monk, Chrysostom had a profound understanding of the needs of his congregation. Inspired by the epistles to the Corinthians and Ephesians, he discusses their reasons God instituted marriage — primary to promote holiness of the husband and wife, and only secondarily to produce children.
