A Samizdat manuscript translated by Marite Sapiets -- This is the true story of Father Pavel, a Russian Orthodox priest and his life in the last days of Tsarism and the early period of Soviet rule. Before making his profession as a monk he fell in love with a high spirited girl whom he met at a graduation ball at the girls school where he taught. After the October Revolution his wife repudiated religion and became an active atheist. He was arrested, given a prison sentence and exiled to Siberia. This book shows Russian Orthodox spirituality in its simplicity, and profundity, earthed in a rich tradition that fills the lives of people who live by it.
