The Saints of the Orthodox Church are living examples of human nature transfigured by Divinity. Breathing forth a common spiritual fragrance of otherworldliness, humble sobriety, and love, they are also intensely individual, their individuality being ever more heightened and refined as they draw nearer to their Creator. Mount Athos, a peninsular in northern Greece, is the world's only monastic republic. It has been inhabited solely by monks for more than a thousand years, setting the tone of Orthodox Christian spirituality worldwide and producing a continuous stream of saints. CONTEMPORARY ASCETICS OF MOUNT ATHOS describes the lives and the spiritual images of ten Athonite Elders of recent centuries, who, although not formally canonized, are clearly seen to be in the spirit of all the Christian Saints since the time of the Apostles. Differing greatly from each other in their backgrounds, characters and ways of life, all bear the evident seal of the presence of the Holy Spirit in their hearts, testifying to a troubled world that the purpose of man’s existence is union with God. The author, Archimandrite Cherubim Karambelas (†1979), lived on Mount Athos in his youth, and searched out firsthand sources and living witnesses for his information on these Elders. In CONTEMPORARY ASCETICS OF MOUNT ATHOS, the most exalted teachings on asceticism and the vision of God are seen practically applied in the persons of these new luminaries, stars in our midst. Volume II: 358 pages, illustrated, full-colour cover, paperback.
