Product Description

Item No. 006080

This volume is the first comprehensive publication in English on the remarkable life and Church ministry of Metropolitan Leonty (Turkevich) (1876 – 1965) - a life and ministry which mirror the tumultuous history of the Church both in Russia and America for most of the 20th century. It includes scholarly presentations given at the symposium in 2015 held at St. Tikhon’s Seminary commemorating the 50th anniversary of his repose, funeral eulogies and other testimonials from those who remember him, as well as a sampling of his extensive and diverse writings, some newly translated into English.

Those who were blessed to have known Metropolitan Leonty in this earthly life remember him for the fruits of the Holy Spirit evident in him: humility, prayerfulness, meekness, dignity, kindness, generosity, forbearance, thoughtfulness, a sense of humor, vision, erudition, and wisdom. Some even consider him to be a saint. May the current and future generations of Orthodox believers in America be inspired by Metropolitan Leonty, the extraordinary hierarch to whom this book is devoted.

-Alexis Liberovsky, Archivist of the Orthodox Church in America
