Meditations on the Divine Liturgy illuminates The Divine Liturgy of Saint John CHrysostom, the center point of the Orthodox Christian cycle of worship. Gogol offers a meditation both spiritual and practical, educating the reader as to the form and meaning of the liturgy. Drawing from both the early Church Fathers and his own experience in explaining the sublime rite, Gogol provides a window into his own spiritual life.
This new edition enhanced by both a subject and scripture index. Direct quotations from the liturgy are taken from The Divine Liturgy of Our Father Among the Saints John Chrysostom, recently published by Holy Trinity Publications.
Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) was one of the foremost Russian writers of the nineteenth century and a leading voice in the school of Russian literary realism. He is best known for his short stories, satires, and plays.
