Publishers Description

Nil Sorsky (1433/34-1508), founder of the Sora Hermitage and initiator of 'scete ' life in among Russian Christians, is closely identified with the Orthodox contemplative prayer known as hesychasm, 'stillness. ' In these translations, Nil's own voice speaks across five hundred years to modern readers. The introduction and notes accurately place him within the Russian monastic tradition and identify the Slavic sources on which he drew. This introduction to the life and works of pre-modern Russia's outstanding teacher and writer allows English readers to share in celebrations of the 500th anniversary of Nil's death, to be marked in Russia by a symposium in the cloister of first his tonsure, by special seminars, and learned conferences.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly recommended especially for college library collections and Russian religious history shelves  Oct 7, 2008
The "Great Elder" of Rusha, Nil Sorsky (1433/34-1508) was founder of the Sora Hermitage, advocate of scete monasticism, author on hesychasm (stillness) and much more. Unique as a the only native spiritual teacher of his era, he was extensively studied by later Russian monks and nuns. Nil Sorsky: The Authentic Writings commemorates the five hundredth anniversary of Nil Sorsky's death by collecting his writings and presenting them with extensive footnotes of their Slavic sources. Editor David M. Goldfrank exhorts readers to set aside any preconceptions they have of Nil Sorsky, and listen to his speech in his own words - words that were often spoken amid a difficult and frequently deadly medieval struggle to defend his church and the authenticity of his faith. Sorsky's natural gifts as a teacher and writer in this profound primary reference highly recommended especially for college library collections and Russian religious history shelves.
