News & updates as we approach Holy Week

News & updates as we approach Holy Week

Dear readers,

We hope this letter finds you in good health and spiritually prepared for the approaching end of the Great Fast and the onset of Holy Week. We'll be pausing our operations starting next week to fully dedicate ourselves to the commemoration of the saving Passion and Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Please see details below.

New from Holy Trinity Seminary Press: In 2016, we published a landmark study of Orthodox Christians in the Levant and the wider region under Ottoman rule. The author, Russian scholar Constantin A. Panchenko, has now revised and expanded the introductory portion of that text, which has now been published as a separate volume. We are excited to mark the official publication date today of Orthodoxy and Islam in the Middle East: The Seventh to the Sixteenth Centuries. In this new survey of the almost nine centuries that passed from the beginning of the spread of Islam up to the Ottoman Turkish conquest of Syria and Egypt beginning in 1516, Panchenko offers a more complex portrayal of this period than is typically encountered, focusing on the impact that the appearance of Islam had on the many forms of Christianity they encountered, principally the Orthodox Christian communities of the Middle East. In particular he illuminates the interplay of their Greek cultural heritage with increasing Arabization over time.

This is essential reading for those who want to gain an understanding of the history of the Middle East in these centuries and of how the faith of Orthodox Christians in these lands is lived today.

Also available: Our full list of forthcoming titles for the Fall 2021 publication season is available now at our website! It includes a sober and forensic analysis of the Ukrainian Ecclesial Crisis, a second edition of Dr. Jean-Claude Larchet's study of the patristic teaching on Life After Death, and more. All forthcoming release can be pre-ordered now at HTP Bookstore or wherever books are sold.

Holy Week and Bright Week: Our offices will be closed from Holy Thursday through Bright Tuesday (April 28 - May 4). We will not be responding to emails or phone calls during this time but we do welcome you to place orders via our website. Orders placed after 3 pm on Wednesday, April 27th will not be processed until we re-open on Wednesday, May 5.

Finally, dear readers, we assure you of our heartfelt prayers for a peaceful and salvific end to the lenten struggle and a joyous celebration of the Bright Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour!

In Christ,

Selected Essays by Father Michael Pomazansky

Selected Essays

of Protopresbyter Michael Pomazansky

This collection of essays by one of the giants of the twentieth century Russian emigration is newly available in digital form. Fr. Michael Pomazansky was one of the Russian Church Abroad's last living links to the streams of pre-revolutionary Russian theology. He graduated from the Kiev Theological Academy in 1912, where he studied under the wings of Metropolitan Antony (Khrapovitsky). In 1949 Fr. Michael and his family emigrated to the United States and settled in Jordanville, where he taught the Greek and Church Slavonic languages and Dogmatic Theology until his retirement. His most famous work is Orthodox Dogmatic TheologyFr. Michael reposed in peace in 1988, only a few days shy his one-hundredth birthday.

His characteristic spirit of deep humility infuses these writings. Subjects addressed in this collection include biblical criticism, Catholicity and Cooperation in the Church, Liturgical Books, serving in the Church, the liturgical theology of Fr. Alexander Schmemann, the Glorification of Saints, Children in the Church and much more.

Commentary on
the Holy Scriptures
of the New Testament
Three-volume Boxed Set
by Archbishop Averky (Taushev)

Previously available as separate digital volumes, but combined now at a new low price! 

Archbishop Averky approaches the New Testament first and foremost not as a literary work of antiquity, but as the revelation of Jesus Christ as God in the flesh. Writing in the tradition of biblical exegetes, such as St John Chrysostom, Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, and St Theophan the Recluse, he provides a commentary that is firmly grounded in the teaching of the Church, manifested in its liturgical hymnography and the works of the Holy Fathers. 

Archbishop Averky's commentaries on the New Testament have become standard textbooks in Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary and have been published in Russia to widespread acclaim. This present collection makes the complete commentary available in one collection for the first time. It is an indispensable addition to the library of every student of Holy Scripture.
