Description

An anonymous nineteenth-century peasant attempts to follow St. Paul's advice to "pray without ceasing," setting out on a pilgrimage with only a Bible, a rosary, and some dried bread. Throughout his travels, he recites the Jesus prayer ("Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me"), an invocation reputed to instill a sense of love for all creation. The story of his spiritual education, The Way of a Pilgrim, ranks among the classics of world spirituality, and its appearance here distinguishes this superb anthology of spiritual works by Russian writers. Ranging from the eleventh century to modern times, its contents 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. They offer both a literary sensibility and compelling examples of intense religious experience. A scholarly but clear commentary introduces each of the texts. The first such anthology in any language, this volume was hailed upon its original publication as "a gold mine indeed" (Commonweal). Unabridged republication of A Treasury of Russian Spirituality, published by Harper Torchbooks, New York, 1965.
