Life & Works of Saint Sergius of Radonezh - The Hegoumen of Russia & a Miracle Maker (Paperback): Serge Jumati Life & Works of Saint Sergius of Radonezh - The Hegoumen of Russia & a Miracle Maker (Paperback)

In the prayer to St Sergius of Radonezh it is said : 'You came closer to God than any other earthly man'. Saint Sergius revived the monastic ascetic practices in Russia and founded many monasteries. He trained a multitude of monks-ascetics who in their turn founded hundreds of monasteries which enlightened the east and the north of Russia. Saint Sergius was also a wise counsellor and inspirer of Russian Princes and he helped establish the Russian state under the rule of the Great Prince of Moscow Dimitri Donskoy. With the blessing of Saint Sergius, Dimitri Donskoy stood up bravely against the Tatar Khan Mamay and defeated him in the bloody Kulikovskaya battle. Thus the Great Prince made the first important step in shaking off the Tatar yoke. There were no books written about Saint Sergius during his life, because of his remarkable humility. The first book about him was written by his disciple Epiphanios the Wise 26 years after Saint's death. Nowadays there are more than a dozen books about Saint Sergius but that by Metropolitan Philaret of Moscow is considered to be the best. This book however is meant for ceremonial reading during church services and therefore many precious details of the life of the Saint are left out. This present work is a re-telling of mainly two books: "The Life of Saint Sergius" by hieromonk Nikon (Rozhdestvenski) and "Saint Sergius of Radonezh and the Trinity Monastery, Established by Him" by the academician E Golubinski. The reader will learn the main events in the life of Saint Sergius, his spiritual visions and the testimonies of his disciples. The original texts were shortened and set in modern language, in order to make them better accessible to the reader.

In an age searching for earthly solutions to spiritual problems, the ancient ministry of the God-bearing elder is a divine gift to contemporary man. Termed the "golden chain" by St. Symeon the New Theologian, this life-giving ministry of the Church is a precious inheritance passed down from Christ, through the Apostles, from one generation to the next, to our own day. The lives and counsels contained in this volume attest to the continued vitality of this ancient ministry and to the importance of its preservation for the life of the Church today. This volume includes a Foreword by Georgios Mantzaridis, Professor Emeritus of the University of Thessalonica, extensive commentary providing the context for the lives and counsels therein, detailed maps, and a glossary of theological terms, making it an invaluable source of spiritual orientation and enlightenment for every seeker of Christian Orthodoxy.

Is matter, in respect of alteration, an evil cause? It is thus proved that it is not more evil than good. For let the beginning of the, change be from evil. Thus the change is from this to good through that which is indifferent. But let the alteration be from good. Again the beginning goes on through that which is indifferent. Whether the motion be to one extreme or to the other, the method is the same, and this is abundantly set Forth. All motion has to do with quantity; but quality is the guide in virtue and vice. Now we know that these two are enerically distinguished. But are God and matter alone principles, or floes there remain anything else which is the mean between these two? For it there is nothing, these things remain unintermingled one with another. And it is well said that if the extremes are intermingled, there is a necessity for some thing intermediate to connect them.

This translation of the Scriptures comes from a small Apostolic Church, the Ancient Church of the East, a Church that nearly disappeared from the map during the Middle Ages. Yet, because of that it retained the original Scriptures intact. There is almost nobody left that can read this language, a language that is no longer spoken; however, it is a language that has given birth to thousands of languages, because it is the original language that the Lord spoke from the beginning of recorded history. It is the language in which the doctrines of the Scriptures were nurtured. It is called in this translation the Ancient Aramaic language; but it is not Aramaic in the modern vernacular, nor is it Hebrew or any other designation that might imply it is open to personal or nationalistic interpretation. This is the language that the Lord chose, it is the language in which He taught, it is the language He read from, it is the language the Apostles spoke, and it is the language in which the Scriptures were compiled. This is not pride in language. The language is politically dead. It ceased to be used as a literary language in the 13th Century. It exists only as a liturgical language, and now as the language of this translation. It is no longer a language of a single race of people, nor is it the native language of any nation. It is a language free of national boundaries. This translation is in English, because it is the language in which the world has chosen to communicate. The language of the Scriptures must never become subservient to English or any other language. The English language must never be allowed to be the sole vehicle for the Scriptures, because this is how false pride, prejudice and racism begin. As the language of this translation, English is a window to the Scriptures. The Scriptures can be viewed through this window; but the window must not be broken, made into a door, or a gateway into a new interpretation, hierarchy or religious order.

Excerpt from book: and crowns are of a circular shape, and we decorate our house of prayer, i. e. the church, on feast days, with wreaths and garlands of flowers. A circle is significant of something without an end, i. e. eternity. It also denotes joy. CHAPTER III. THE TEMPLE AND ITS DIVISION IN PARTS. The Church, or, proper, the Temple, is divided into three parts: 1. The Sanctuary (for the Clergy); 2. The Nave (for the Faithful); 3. The Porch (for the Catechumens and the Penitents). The Sanctuary must be at the east side of the building. It is separated from the body of the auditorium by a screen or wall, called the Iconostasis. This is a Greek word, and signifies a place for pictures or images. There are three doorways in the Iconostasis, which are furnished with doors opening inwards, the central ones being double, and called the Royal Gates. The latter are not solid throughout, and behind them hangs a curtain, which is drawn and withdrawn as the ritual requires. In the middle of the Sanctuary stands the holy table (Altar), vested, first, with a linen covering, and over this with one of rich brocade. Behind the Altar there stands a candlestick with seven lights. Upon .the holy table is kept an ark or casket, often in the shape of a temple, and usually made of metal, which contains the Holy Sacrament, reserved for the Communion of the sick (and sometimes for the absent), or for the Liturgy of the Presancti- fied, which is sung in the days of Great Lent. At the Celebration of the Liturgy, a cloth containing Relics,called the Antirnins, is spread upon the Altar, and upon this are placed the sacred vessels with their coverings or veils. The Antimins are blessed only by the Bishop, and by him they are distributed among the churches. The holy Liturgy is offered over them in respect to t...

This book explores the changes underwent by the Orthodox Churches of Eastern and Southeastern Europe as they came into contact with modernity. The movements of religious renewal among Orthodox believers appeared almost simultaneously in different areas of Eastern Europe at the end of the nineteenth and during the first decades of the twentieth century. This volume examines what could be defined as renewal movement in Eastern Orthodox traditions. Some case studies include the God Worshippers in Serbia, religious fraternities in Bulgaria, the Zoe movement in Greece, the evangelical movement among Romanian Orthodox believers known as Oastea Domnului (The Lord's Army), the Doukhobors in Russia, and the Maliovantsy in Ukraine. This volume provides a new understanding of processes of change in the spiritual landscape of Orthodox Christianity and various influences such as other non-Orthodox traditions, charismatic leaders, new religious practices and rituals.

The Radical Orthodoxy Reader (Paperback): John Milbank, Simon Oliver The Radical Orthodoxy Reader (Paperback)

R751 Discovery Miles 7 510 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The Radical Orthodoxy Reader presents a selection of key readings in the field of Radical Orthodoxy, the most influential theological movement in contemporary academic theology. Radical Orthodoxy draws on pre-Enlightenment theology and philosophy to engage critically with the assumption and priorities of secularism, modernity, postmodernity, and associated theologies. In doing so it explores a wide and exciting range of issues: music, language, society, the body, the city, power, motion, space, time, personhood, sex and gender. As such it is both controversial and extremely stimulating; provoking much fruitful debate amongst contemporary theologians. To assist those encountering Radical Orthodoxy for the first time, each section has an introductory commentary, related reading and helpful questions to encourage in-depth understanding and further study.
