Publisher's Description

Profound writings by one of the twentieth century's greatest polymaths

"Perhaps the most remarkable person devoured by the Gulag" is how Alexandr Solzhenitsyn described Pavel Florensky, a Russian Orthodox mathematician, scientist, linguist, art historian, philosopher, theologian, and priest who was martyred during the Bolshevik purges of the 1930s.

This volume contains eight important religious works written by Florensky in the first decade of the twentieth century, now translated into English—most of them for the first time. Splendidly interweaving religious, scientific, and literary themes, these essays showcase the diversity of Florensky's broad learning and interests. Including reflections on the sacraments and explorations of Russian monastic culture, the volume concludes with "The Salt of the Earth," arguably Florensky's most spiritually moving work.

Author Bio

Pavel Florensky (1882–1937) was one of the preeminent Russian Orthodox thinkers of the twentieth century. His best-known work is The Pillar and Ground of Truth: An Essay in Orthodox Theodicy in Twelve Letters.

Boris Jakim is the foremost translator of Russian religious thought into English. His published translations include works by Fyodor Dostoevsky, S. L. Frank, Vladimir Solovyov, and Sergius Bulgakov.

Editorial Reviews

David Bentley Hart
"We are yet again indebted to Boris Jakim for his prodigious efforts to bring the best of Russian Christian thought into English, not only with great fidelity but with admirable literary grace. Above all, his translations of the glorious trio of the great Russian 'Sophiologists'--Solovyov, Florensky, and Bulgakov--have opened the world of Anglophone scholarship to the full scope of their truly staggering genius. Florensky was in some ways the most mercurial of the three, and the one whose range of intellectual expertise crossed the greatest number of boundaries. This collection is a true treasure because it sheds remarkable light on Florensky's thought and on the whole of Russian religious philosophy in its golden age."

Andrew Louth
 "This volume reveals Florensky's extraordinary capacity to relate quite disparate notions and his startling originality, manifest, for example, in the way he shows hierarchy and dogma to be ways of enshrining spiritual freedom. These pieces are essential for grasping the roots of Fr. Florensky's thought."
