THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE HEART: BE YE ALSO ENLARGED (2 CORINTHIANS 6:13) IN THE THEOLOGY OF SAINT SILOUAN THE ATHONITE AND ELDER SOPHRONY OF ESSEX BY ARCHIMANDRITE ZACHARIAS
The Enlargement of the Heart is an astoundingly majestic presentation of the nature and purpose of human existence in two of the most important figures in contemporary Orthodoxy: St. Silouan the Athonite (1866–1938) and Elder Sophrony of Essex (1896–1993).
Delivered in Wichita, Kansas at the 2001 Clergy Brotherhood Retreat of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church, each lecture is published here in full together with its Asides and corresponding Questions & Answers.
