Antony (Medvedev)

Archbishop Anthony (Medvedev) (1908–2000) served for over thirty years as the Archbishop of San Francisco in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. Born and raised in pre-revolutionary Russia, he served in the White Army during the Russian Civil War and later became a monk. During World War II he served as a military chaplain and joined the Brotherhood of St. Job of Pochaev in Ladomirova, Czechoslovakia. After the war, he went with the brotherhood to Holy Trinity Monastery near Jordanville, New York, where he became an archimandrite. In 1956, he was consecrated Bishop of Melbourne, and served as vicar to Archbishop Philaret (Vosnesensky), the future First Hierarch of ROCOR. After the death of Archbishop John (Maximovitch), Bishop Anthony became the archbishop of San Francisco in 1968. During his tenure as archbishop he helped prepare and write services to many newly canonized saints, including St. Herman of Alaska, Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg, and St. John of San Francisco, his own predecessor. He reposed in 2000 and was buried at Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville.

The Young Elder

The life of Elder Ambrose, whilst short by earthly standards, is presented to the reader as an ideal of the monastic life. This fascinating life is preceded by a detailed overview of the Orthodox understanding of monasticism and the chief characteristics of it, starting with the assumption that "Monasticism is the barometer of Church life."
