"A valuable treasure of Russian spirituality that theologians, philosophers, and laymen will read with pleasure and delight."-The Personalist"A gold mine indeed"-Commonweal The story of an anonymous 19th-century peasant's spiritual education, "The Way of a Pilgrim" ranks among the classics of world spirituality. Its appearance here distinguishes this superb anthology-the first such compilation in any language-of spiritual works by Russian writers. Clear, scholarly commentaries introduce the texts, which range from the eleventh century to modern times and derive from the lives of saints, ascetic and mystic treatises, and spiritual autobiographies. All the authors--mystics, prophets, rebels, and saints-belonged to the Russian Orthodox Church, and most occupied authoritative places in terms of spiritual guidance. Their works offer both a literary sensibility and compelling examples of intense religious experience.
