ON THE INCARNATION

Author: ST. ATHANASIUS #: 10224
St. Athanasius stood contra mundum for the Trinitarian doctrine ‘whole and undefiled,’ when it looked as if all the civilized world was slipping back from Christianity into the religion of Arius, into one of those `sensible` synthetic religions which are so strongly recommended today and which then, as now, included among their devotees many highly cultivated clergymen. The glory of St. Athanasius is that he did not move with the times; it is his reward that he now remains when those times, like all others, have passed away.

ON THE CHRISTIAN SACRAMENTS: WITH PARALLEL GREEK TEXT

Author: ST. CYRIL OF JERUSALEM EDITED BY F. L. CROSS #: 10225
These six Lectures on the Christian Sacraments were delivered in Jerusalem in the middle of the fourth century. They belong to a period of rapid transition for the Church. Less than forty years before, Christianity had been an illegal religion, the object of intense persecution. Now it was the favored religion of the state. Potential converts thronged the shining new basilicas, built through the beneficence of Constantine and his successors. Catechetical instruction was needed. It was provided by gifted preachers and teachers like St Cyril of Jerusalem.

ON ASCETICAL LIFE

Author: RANSLATED BY MARY HANSBURY #: 10226
Isaac of Nineveh was a native of Bet Qatraye near present-day Bahrain on the Persian Gulf. A teacher and monk, he was consecrated bishop (ca. 660-680), but preferred to live out his live as an anchorite. A Scriptural scholar, he studies Scripture so much that he became blind and had to dictate his writings. He died at an advance age and was buried in Rabban Shabur, where he spent most of his monastic life.

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

Author: ARCHIMANDRITE SOPHRONY SAKHAROV #: 10228
Staretz, or "elder", is a title given to Orthodox monks of particular spiritual development. Staretz Silouan was a Russian peasant whose only formal education consisted of two winters at the village school. 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.
