Truth and Life

by Αrchimandrite SOPHRONY (sakharov)

“Every religion, all the old and new parareligious forms, the lives of the mystics – all have their ascetic culture, which varies in accordance with the underlying dogmatic consciousness. The dependence of the ascetic act on the form of dogmatic consciousness and, vice versa, the dependence of doctrine on spiritual experience, is a theme of great interest…” ‘God is Truth and Life, and in Him the saints too become living and true.’ This book is a collection of texts which all demonstrate Archimandrite Sophrony’s profound conviction that true life is based on true doctrine. Archimandrite Sophrony (Sakharov), 1896 – 1993, also Elder Sophrony, was best known as the disciple and biographer of St Silouan the Athonite and compiler of St Silouan’s works, and as the founder of the Patriarchal Stavropegic Monastery of St. John the Baptist in Tolleshunt Knights, Maldon, Essex, England.
