ELDER AMBROSE OF OPTINA
A biography of the great elder of the Optina Monastery. He read human hearts, was granted to know the past, present and future of people, and spoke to them direct, the revealed word of God. So great were his gifts that hundreds of people flocked daily to his humble cabin in central Russia. Among these were the writers Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Leontiev and Solovyev. The character of Elder Zosima in The Brothers Karamazov was modelled after Elder Ambrose.
