Optina Saints?
« on: April 20, 2006, 11:34:16 PM »
Could someobody tell me the full list of Optina Saints who are in this Icon?

"Do what you want in order to send me as soon as possible from this transient life to eternal life. I am Christ's slave, I follow Christ, for Christ I die that I may live with Him!" - St. John of Decapolis before his martyrdom at the hands of the Turkish Muslims.

do you have a better image, one blown up more?  the names are in the margins, and although I don't read Russian, I could take a stab at it if I could read them.

I'm not sure if this is any better. But here it is.

There were fourteen Elders. However there were others that have come after them. The fourteen are: Schema-Archmandrite Moses Scheme-Hegumen Anthony Hieroschememonks: Lev (Leo) Macarius Ambrose Hilarion Anatoly (Zertsalov) Joseph Schema-Archmandrite Barsanuphius Archmanrdrite Isacius (Antimonov) Hieroschemamonks: Anatoly (Potopov) Nectarius Nicon Archmandrite Isacius (II) These are two other disciples of Optina: Archbishop Andrew (Fr. Adrian) of Rockland (NY) Bishop Nectary of Seattle.

Memories of Optina early 90's. I really like. Peacefully written.
