Six Lectures on the History of the Mystery of Repentance

This is a translation of six lectures originally delivered in Moscow during Great Lent, 1926. Whilst they are specifically concerned with preventing the abuse of "general confession," in so doing they set out succinctly the history of this essential Christian sacrament and of the necessity of its correct use in the Church today.
