Death to the World

Let me recommend to your reading the website: Death to the World – The Last True Rebellion.

Blessed Hieromonk Seraphim131x186.jpgInspired by the life and writings of Blessed Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose) of Platina, it has several good articles.

I highlight the following:

Nihilism 101, an excerpt from the first chapter of Fr Seraphim’s book, Nihilism
The Orthodox Revival in Russia as an Inspiration for American Orthodoxy, a talk given by Fr Seraphim given on September 1, 1980, at the University of California, Santa Cruz, during the West Coast Conference held in preparation for the one-thousandth anniversary of the baptism of Russia
The Last True Rebellion, an article based on Fr Seraphim’s writings on nihilism and atheism

Note: There are also links to the eleven issues of their “Death to the World” zine here, all in pdf files.

As always, these writings are to be submitted to the mind of the Church in the person of one’s priest or spiritual father.

  1. Grrf. I hate to be quoted without permission.

    I’ve sent them an email requesting either a link or removal.

    thanks for the heads up!

    They’ve also edited out the part where I reported how I found out that Fr Seraphim was struggling with homosexuality.


  2. Nice email from ’em. We’ll see. Odd, they (edited and) printed the touchstone version, to which TS still has the copyright.

    Anyway. Thanks, again for the heads-up: not a fun way to begin lent!

    Asking your prayers.

  3. I didn’t read the article they had edited to compare it with the Touchstone one, so I’m not clear on what got expurgated . . . but, yeah, what was the big deal?

    I’ve removed the link from the post above.
