Father Arseny, 1893-1973: Priest, Prisoner, Spiritual Father

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Slim softcover with glossy card cover. Published by St Vladimir's Seminary Press, New York, 2001 reprint (first published in Russian in 1993). 

Father Arseny, former scholar of church art, became Prisoner No. 18376 in the brutal "special sector" of the Soviet prison camp system. His sights set on God and his life grounded in the Church, Father Arseny lived by the injunction to "bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Gal 6:2).

This narrative, compiled from accounts of Father Arseny's spiritual children and others whom he brought to God, gives stirring glimpses of his life in prison camp and after his release. It also tells the stories of people whose lives, often during times of almost unimaginable crisis, were touched and transfigured through their connection with him.

Paperback with inscription, otherwise in excellent condition.
