Regarding Fr Basilisk
« on: November 28, 2007, 02:08:31 PM »
I am currently reading a book titled, "Elder Zosima: Hesychast of Siberia".
The book mentions another book, written by Elder Zosima which details the life of his spiritual father, Fr Basilisk.  Does anyone know if this book is obtainable?

I don't know, but as a former Dungeons and Dragons player, I always thought a Basilisk was a type of dragon!  :laugh:

What an odd name for a priest?

Linguistic variant of the name Basil?
