From the Publisher:

Each national Orthodox Church has published in its own language a treasury of the Lives of the Saints, not only those who flourished in the early centuries of the Church, but also those saints of that particular national church who lived during the second millenium. Typically, these collections followed the same traditional structure: twelve volumes, one for each month, with full length Lives of the saints of each day of the month.

Our offering of the famous Russian collection by St. Demetrius of Rostov (1651-1709) marks the first time any of these collections have been published in their entirety in the English language. It is a milestone in the history of Orthodox publications in English, and sure to become a standard reference work of the Orthodox saints.

Review:

This Great Collection is of the greatest importance for all readers interested in the theology and Saints of the Orthodox Church. -- Archbishop Damianos of Sinai, Egypt, St. Catherine's Monastery

Truly a major contribution to English-speaking Orthodoxy. -- Archbishop Dmitri, Dallas, Texas
