— About the Book —

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 Theology. Fr. 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.
