This biography is of the Elder Moses of Optina (1782-1862), who founded the Skete of Saint John the Forerunner and established at Optina the eldership for which it became renowned. Although appearing to be a pious but unremarkable monk, he was adorned with the highest gifts of the Holy Spirit. Includes many illustrations, two maps, a service to the Elder Moses, glossary, and index.
