Spiritual Instruction and Discourses by Archimandrite Aimilianos, Former Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Simonos Petras, Mount Athos, Greece.
The Authentic Seal is one of several books of Elder Aimilianos, such as The Way of the Spirit, The Church at Prayer, and Psalms and the Life of Faith, that have been translated into English and are spiritual classics. The present collection, marking the beginning (1999) of the publications of the talks and spiritual instructions of Elder Aimilianos, consists of two parts: the first contains texts which are concerned with the regeneration, organization, and operation of Orthodox monasticism, in particular the cenobitic system. The second part is made up of talks of wider spiritual interest. The reader will be struck with how seriously the author takes prayer. The teaching of this major Orthodox elder and author of the late 20th century is a revelatory discourse, spiritually instructive, and in the tradition of the Sayings of the Desert Fathers.
