New Library, Volume Two: Summaries and discussions of thirty Books of or about Byzantine and modern writers, Greeks and Russians, in the fields of Philosophy, Literature, and Christian Religion.

   
By Constantine Cavarnos

Volume Two of New Library

“The warm reception of Volume One of New Library encouraged me to proceed with the preparation of the second volume[...]. [...]All the texts that make up the present volume were written after the publication of Volume One of New Library in late 1989. [...]In preparing those that have already been published for inclusion in this volume, I have expanded them at certain points and improved them in other ways as well. The texts have been organized in seven groups and arranged under appropriate headings in seven chapters. The sequence in which the chapters have been placed for the most part follows the chronology of the authors and of the earliest appearance of the books discussed, except for the first chapter.”

    Second Edition, Reprinted with additions By Constantine Cavarnos Volume 3 of [link BKC001S]Modern Orthodox Saints[/link] “St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite was born in 1749 in Naxos, one of the Aegean islands. He received his elementary education there. His teacher was Archimandrite Chrysanthos Aitolos, (d. 1785), brother of St. Cosmas. A distinguished teacher, Chrysanthos taught for a time at the Patriarchal school at Constantinople before he became Director of the school in Naxos. He shared Cosmas’ sentiments and convictions; and thus the powerful message and example of the saint of Aitolia began to influence Nicodemos at a very early age, when Cosmas was traveling about as a missionary.” —“Introductory” CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTORY THE LIFE OF SAINT NICODEMOS    By Gerasimos Micragiannanitis, of Mount Athos WORKS OF THE SAINT WRITINGS OF THE SAINT SELECTED PASSAGES FROM THE THE WORKS OF ST.
