Blessed Paisius Velichkovsky: The Man Behind the Philokalia; In Commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Repose of St. Paisius Velichkovsky; The Life and Ascetic Labors of Our Father, Elder Paisius, Archimandrite of the Holy Moldavian Monasteries of Niamets and Sekoul. Optina Version.

   
By Schema-monk Metrophanes
Translated by Fr. Seraphim Rose

“The Life of Elder Paisius which we here present was written by his own disciples, chiefly by Schema-monk Metrophanes of Niamets Monastery, and was published in it present form[...]by the God-bearing Elders of Optina Monastery as the first of the texts of the veritable patristic revival which they inspired in 19th-century Russia. It is much to be preferred to the 20th-century biography in that it gives not only the facts of the Elder’s life, but more importantly, the very savor of his struggles. It is itself a patristic text capable of guiding and inspiring the Orthodox believer today.”
