A profoundly discerning and timely work that discusses the deeper spiritual reality behind the catastrophic events of the Russian Revolution that still imposes its influence on the Russian Orthodox Church today. Also contains the essay by Professor Andreyev, "Notes on the Catacomb Church." These two essays give a deeper, spiritual perspective to any historical understanding of contemporary issues concerning the Russian Orthodox Church. It also introduces the English reader to the important understanding of "things of the soul" as different from "things of the spirit." This understanding goes far beyond the titlle of this work and serves as a fundamental benchmark to which all "religious phenomena and movements" are to be examined by today's believers.

Professor Andreyev ( 1894 - 1976) was a confessor of the Orthodox Christian faith, sentenced to the Solovki prison camp far in the North of Russia during Stalin's era and a "Catacomb" Christian, who was present with the "Petrograd Delgation" that went before Metropolitan Sergius to beg him to renounce his collaboration with the Soviet State. His is a voice that speaks without harshness, but with an unshakable integrity borne out of first hand experience and a deep piety. Professor Andreyev escaped to the West and became a respected and honoured instructor at Holy Trinity Seminary in Jordanville, New York from 1950 until 1971.
