Father Arseny, 1893–1973: Priest, Prisoner, Spiritual Father; Being the narratives compiled by the servant of God Alexander concerning his spiritual father

Translated from the Russian by Vera Bouteneff

“Piotr Andreyevitch Streltzoff was an art historian who, on becoming a priest-monk, was given the name of Father Arseny. It appears from the text that he was born in the first decade of the twentieth century, was first arrested in 1933 and then again in 1939 for his activities as a priest, and survived in prison camps where he stayed until 1958. He died in 1973. This book first appeared during communist rule in samizdat form. Even then the book circulated widely and nourished the spiritual lives of many. After the fall of communism when it could be published officially, it was reprinted twice (200,000 copies each time), the last time in 1994. Its success in Russia has been enormous.”
