  1. Greek Letters and Orthodoxy.

    Greek Letters and Orthodoxy.

    $14.95

    Significant Relations of Orthodox Christianity to the Greek Language and to Ancient Greek Philosophy, Rhetoric, and Poetry “The motif of Greek Letters and Orthodoxy is well expressed by a statement made a century ago (1903) by Professor Thaddeus Zielinsky of St. Petersburg University, and appears in the book Our Debt to Antiquity by H.A. Strong and Hugh Steward[...]. Professor Zielinsky says: ‘We cannot separate the idea of Christianity from that of classical culture. In the first place, because Greek is the language of the Oldest Christian writings.... We cannot understand Christianity without studying its Greek records.’” —“PREFACE” Learn More

    New Holy Hieromartyr Maximus Sandovich Protomartyr of the Lemko People

    $19.95

    Throughout the Carpathian region a tremendous upheaval shook the parishes. Uniate priests of Russian persuasion were driven from their posts, their families were thrown out into the streets, and few were the courageous souls who dared to defy the authorities by sheltering the homeless. The parishes were then turned over to newly ordained priests who had received their education at the hands of the Jesuits at the Basilian College. The imposition of the new Ukrainian Uniate ritual was entrusted to the Jesuit-educated monks of the "Order of Saint Basil the Great". But if life had become so difficult for the Uniate Russophile clergy, it was far worse for the few Orthodox priests and their families in Carpatho-Rus' and Galicia. One such priest is Hieromartyr Maximus Sandovich, of blessed memory. Learn More

    “The battle of Kosovo was, in the eyes of the world, a disastrous defeat for the Serbs. But in the eyes of heaven and of those who understand the mystery and meaning of the Battle of Kosovo, it was a glorious victory. It marked the day when the Serbian people ceased to trust in the material things of the kingdom of this world, and began to set their hope on the spiritual values of the heavenly kingdom. It marked the day when the Serbs voluntarily had sacrificed their glorious earthly kingdom and even themselves for Christ their God, so that they might be partakers of the incomparably more glorious heavenly kingdom of Christ. [...]To grasp The Mystery and the Meaning of the Battle of Kosovo fully, one must read the pages that follow in this marvelous book[...]. In this volume are contained three magnificent works by two of the most gifted spiritual writers in the history of the Serbian Orthodox Church.” —“Foreword” Learn More

    Byzantine Thought and Art : A Collection of Essays

    “An increasing amount of attention has been given in recent years to the civilization of the Byzantine Empire, which flourished in the Greek East from the early part of the third century A.D. to 1453. Although many learned works have been written about that great Christian civilization, still certain aspects of it have been little explored. This is especially true of its philosophy and theology, and the deeper essence and significance of its art.” —“Preface” Learn More

    Patriarch Photios of Constantinople is one of the outstanding churchmen of all time. Revered by the Orthodox Church as a saint and champion of Orthodoxy, Patriarch Photios has been studied hitherto primarily in light of the events of the ninth-century controversy between the Orthodox and Latin Churches. The present volume studies Patriarch Photios as an intellectual, an encyclopedist, a teacher....a voracious student of anything that books could offer... a strong upholder of Orthodoxy, the saviour of Constantinople, the father of his flock and a person of enormous compassion. More than anything else, it is the Patriarch's humanity that shines forth from his letters which Professor White presents here for the first time in an english translation. Learn More
