$ 25.00


The Church of the Holy Spirit, written by Russian priest and scholar Nicholas Afanasiev (1893‰ÛÒ1966), is one of the most important works of twentieth-century Orthodox theology. Afanasiev was a member of the ‰ÛÏParis School‰۝ of ̩migr̩ intellectuals who gathered in Paris after the Russian revolution, where he became a member of the faculty of St. Sergius Orthodox Seminary. The Church of the Holy Spirit, which offers a rediscovery of the eucharistic and communal nature of the church in the first several centuries, was written over a number of years beginning in the 1940s and continuously revised until its posthumous publication in French in 1971.
