The Life of the Virgin Mary, the Theotokos: viewed and treated within the framework of Sacred Scriptures, Holy Tradition, Patristics and other ancient writings, together with the Liturgical and Iconographic Traditions of the Holy Orthodox Church

Written and Compiled by Holy Apostles Convent

Volume 4 of Lives of the Saints Series

“Saint Ambrose (339-397), Bishop of Milan, wrote that 'Mary’s life, is a rule of life for all.' Mary Theotokos was to become an icon of the renewed Church. The following accounts narrated in this book will include all the important events in the life and times of the Virgin-Mother, from her Conception to her Dormition and bodily translation. Each chapter of her dedicated and sublime life will be viewed and treated within the framework of Sacred Scriptures and Holy Tradition; patristics and ancient writings; and the liturgical and iconographic traditions of the Holy Orthodox Church.”
