Abbess Arsenia (born Anna Mikhailovna Sebriakova) was the long-tenured superior of the Transfiuguration Monastery, serving for over 45 years in that position during the second half of the 19th century. Well known in her native Don region, she corresponded with luminaries of her time, including P.A. Brianchaninov, brother of St. Ignatius of the Caucasus. Her notes and letters are steeped in the traditions of Holy Scripture, in the inspiration of the Orthodox divine services, and in the deep current of monastic spirituality from which she drew her strength.
