Elder Ambrose of Optina

   
by Fr. Sergius Chetverikov

Volume 4 of The Optina Elders Series

“Now that Elder Ambrose and other major Elders of Optina Monastery have been canonized and works on Elder Ambrose are multiplying, we present this biography of him, written by a man who was closely associated with the literature of Optina and was personally involved with the Elders. The author, Archpriest Sergius I. Chetverikov, on whose 150th anniversary this volume is printed for the first time in the English language, was indeed an expert on Optina. He authored two volumes on St. Paisius Velichkovsky and ended his life as a Valaam monk in 1947.”
—“Introduction: Silence Transmitted”
