Here's a book, that I haven't seen.  It's from www.spasnanovom.ru/books.  If someone can translate, I would love to know what the blurb says, to know whether or not I want to figure out how to order. 

Марфо-Мариинская обитель милосердия

Печатается по изданию 1914 года. Повествует об учреждении Марфо-Мариинской обители милосердия, ее деятельности и о ее целых.
(брошюра, мягкая обложка, 32 стр., 2006 г. издан.)



PS:  The name of the book photo file was "marfa_mariinsray" -- Martha and Mary something?

From http://www.rustran.com/, I got this book blurb translated.  I think the unknown words are Martha & Mary.

"Марфо-Mariinsky monastery of mercy

It is printed under the edition of 1914. Narrates about establishment of the ?aOo«-Mariinsky monastery of mercy, its activity and about its whole. (the brochure, a soft cover, 32 p., 2006 it is published.)"

If someone buys this, I would like to know the cost, how much in text and how much in pictures.

I wonder if the English edition is the same as a book in my second list above:  Community of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr.  The Martha-Mary Convent and Rule of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr.  Paperback, 54 pages.  Holy Trinity Monastery Printshop of St. Job of Pocheaev, Jordanville, NY, 2005.  Contact:   Community of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, 1520 State Route 167, Mohawk, NY 13407-3102, (315) 858-2208.

I looked at my copy of The Martha-Mary Convent and Rule of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr last night.  It says it's from the 1914 original, in English.

The Марфо-Mariinsky Monastery of Mercy book sounds like someone else's republication from the 1914 original, in Russian.

Does anyone know a source for The Orthodox Shrines of Russia, edited by Bishop Tikhon of Bronnitsy.  Moscow:  The Russian Orthodox Church Publishing House of the Moscow Patriarchate, 1997?  I'm hoping it's in English.

There's quite a lot about Grand Duchess Elizabeth as a nun in Lubov Millar's biography, Grand Duchess Elizabeth, New Martyr of the Communist Yoke, which has just been reprinted in an expanded edition (now 500 pages, including more than 150 photographs). She did make quite a number of pilgrimages to various monasteries and convents, often to seek counsel, as well as to holy sites in Russia. What an extraordinary spiritual heroine. No wonder so many people are drawn to know more about her. Millar's book also contains a brief history of her convent up to the present.

Yet the main problem that people do not want to tackle was the relationship between Ella and Serge, which is more complex than clear cut in her book. Which makes people that she was almost born a nun.

Is this book in English?

Yes. The author is from Australia, and of course in English. The German edition has more photos though as I saw in Darmstadt.

For russian readers a new and very necessary big (846 pages) book, edited by te Orthodox University of Saint-Tikhon in Moscow: "Velikaya kniaginia Elisaveta Fedorovna i imperator Nikolai, dokumenty i materily (1884-1909). Sankt-Petersburg, Aleteya, 2009. A long and precious succession of letters and diaries' entriesof Ella, Alix, Maria Fedorovna, Sergey, KR and other Romanov, a very good light on the relationship between the couple Ella-Sergey and the other Romanov. A pity tha it goes only until 1909! Little tirage, only 1000 exemplars.

Yes, the book is really great, we discuss it at the Books on the Imperial Family thread.

Thats'' not the only pity! Also that there are no English copies, is a pity.

Matushka, does the University also have an emailadress?
