"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."
"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."
