Staretz Amvrosy

   
John B. Dunlop

“The intention behind this study has been to acquaint English-language readers with the life and teachings of a most remarkable Russian staretz. As far as was possible, I have tried to allow Amvrosy to speak for himself. Readers in the West should become acquainted with that unique current of spirituality represented by Amvrosy.”

    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.
