In these translations, Nils own voice speaks across five hundred years to modern readers. The introduction and notes accurately place him within the Russian monastic tradition and identify the Slavic sources on which he drew. This introduction to the life and works of pre-modern Russias outstanding teacher and writer allows English readers to share in celebrations of the 500th anniversary of Nils death, to be marked in Russia by a symposium in the cloister of first his tonsure, by special seminars, and learned conferences.
