The origins of the Crimean War by David M Goldfrank( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nil Sorsky : the authentic writings by Nil( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founder of the Sora Hermitage, advocate of scete monasticism, editor of the Slavic translations of the Lives of early and medieval Greek, Egyptian, and Levantine ascetics, and writer on hesychasm (stillness), Nil (1433/34-1508) shines as Russia's 'great elder'. As the only medieval native spiritual teacher, he was studied by later Russian monks and nuns along with his models and distant mentors, the monastic Fathers of the Christian East." "Working from original sources, David Goldfrank allows Nil to speak in his own voice and, uniquely, identifies his slavic sources. No longer idealized and isolated from mainstream Orthodoxy as a figure uniquely tolerant for his age, Nil is shown to have been in the thick of a typically brutal medieval struggle for the defense of his church and the purity of his faith, as well as being a gifted teacher and writer."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A History of Russia: Peoples, Legends, Events, Forces is a comprehensive narrative conceived and developed after the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Informed by the burgeoning historiography of the 1990s, the text balances political and economic explorations of everyday life, social roles, cultural dynamics, and gender issues. Many texts on this subject are written from a pre-Confederation point of view that may be unsuitable for today's classroom. This text provides strong coverage of 20th-century Russia and the U.S.S.R. without sacrificing its coverage of earlier historical periods

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Spurred by Gregorios of Sinai, hesychasm became the primary religious tendency in the South Slavic lands, arguably responsible for a new wave of copying and translated works, many of which ended up in Rus'. This literature is largely of a hesychastic and ascetic nature, in contrast to the primarily liturgical literature of the earlier Kievan-era literature
