MONK OF MOUNT ATHOS BY ARCHIMANDRITE SOPHRONY SAKHAROV

#: 10143

Silouan, an unlettered young peasant from the heart of European Russia, finished his military service in the autumn of 1892 and within a week set off for the Russian Monastery of St Panteleimon on Mount Athos. There, rooted in a tradition reaching back to the very beginnings of Christian monasticism, he came to a personal experience of Christianity akin to that of the Desert Fathers.

This account of Silouan`s life, written by his disciple Archimandrite Sophrony, reveals not only Silouan`s personality and teaching, but also the spiritual struggles which truly made him a staretz (i.e., a monk whose God-given wisdom and insight enable him to serve as a spiritual guide for others.)
