Monasticism can find for itself an entire cloud of witnesses and advocates. It has existed for more than fifteen hundred years. Yet the question is often asked, "Why monasticism?" This book sets forth a monastic apology.  it is illustrated with helpful maps and prints and includes a brief biography of its author Metropolitan Anastassy (Gribanovsky).

Metropolitan Anastasy (Gribanovsky) (1873–1965) was the second First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. He was born into a priest’s family in the Tambov Province of Imperial Russia. He went on to study at Moscow Theological Academy under Archimandrite (later Metropolitan) Anthony (Khrapovitsky), the future head of ROCOR. He was ordained a priest and in 1906 consecrated as a vicar bishop in the Moscow diocese. A few years later he became Archbishop of Kishinev. After the Russian Revolution he joined ROCOR and served as the head of the Jerusalem Ecclesiastical Mission. After the death of Metropolitan Anthony in 1936, he was unanimously elected Metropolitan. Under his nearly thirty years as First Hierarch, ROCOR moved its headquarters to the United States from Germany and underwent a great expansion in America. He retired in 1964, seeing the election of his successor Metropolitan Philaret (Vosnesensky) and reposed in the Lord in 1965.  He is buried in a crypt beneath the altar of the main cathedral of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY.
