I have been reading some extracts from the writings of Theophan the Recluse, and would like to know more about him.

A good starting point: http://home.iprimus.com.au/xenos/theophan.html

Thank you.
I read St. Theophan's thoughts for every day of the year. Wonderful read.

There's a wine named after him.
This profile is defunct as of 11/8/2017. I created it before Orthodoxy, and have used it after Orthodoxy.

I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

I will likely lurk on this forum under a different name.

Some guys in Georgia (the state) made it, didn't they?
