Wisdom from Mount Athos: The Writings of Staretz Silouan 1866‒1938

by Archimandrite Sophrony
translated from the Russian by Rosemary Edmonds

A volume of The Monk of Mount Athos / Wisdom from Mount Athos

“It seems to me that the Staretz was as receptive and spontaneous as the first apostles. The fact that he remained untouched by the falsities of our contemporary civilisation makes him irresistibly convincing. So then, those who were not acquainted with him personally can judge of him by his writings, while those who knew him and saw his genuine simplicity and humility are persuaded that here was a man of God. Staretz Silouan ‘kept his mind in hell, and despaired not’. He battled against the ‘great and strong wind, the earthquake and fire’ of temptation. And now he speaks to us in the still small voice of the Lord.”
