    Nil Sorsky, the Complete Writings
  • Author : Saint Nil (Sorskiĭ),Nil Sorsky
  • Publisher : Paulist Press
  • Pages : 180
  • ISBN : 0809138107
  • Reader Reviews : 1
  • Genre : Religion
  • An important addition to the Classics of Western Spirituality(TM) series is this volume of the writings of Nil Sorsky (+1508), an influential spiritual writer whose major contribution to Eastern Christianity was his bringing to ancient Russia the spirituality of the early Fathers and Mothers of the Desert. This is called the hesychasm spirituality of the heart, which finds the perfection of the human person in union with God through continuous prayer. This first-time translation from Russian into English of Nil's complete writings includes: The Tradition, The Rule, his letters (only four of which have actually been attributed to him) and his last will and testament. The Tradition is his earliest attempt to give his disciples a written but very simplified rule of skete monasticism, which he practiced on Mt. Athos. The Rule is an extended ascetical treatise on what Nil calls mental activity or, in today's terms, perpetual or continuous prayer. An informative introduction examines the significance of Nil's spirituality and places it within the historical setting of 15th century Russia. +

    Thirty-One Nil
  • Author : James Montague
  • Publisher : A&C Black
  • Pages : 336
  • ISBN : 9781408851593
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Sports & Recreation
  • In a tiny, decaying aluminium smelting town in southern Tajikistan, a short drive from a raging war zone, Afghanistan take on Palestine in the first Asian qualifier for 2014's World Cup in Brazil. Every player on both teams is risking something by playing: their careers, their families, even their lives. Yet, along with thousands of other footballers backed by millions of supporters, they all dream of snatching one of the precious 32 places at the finals; and so begins a three-year epic struggle – long before the usual suspects start their higher-profile qualifying campaigns under the spotlight. Named after the greatest victory (and defeat) that the World Cup qualifiers have ever seen (Australia's 31-0 victory over American Samoa), Thirty-One Nil is the story of how footballers from all corners of the globe begin their journey chasing a place at the World Cup Finals. It celebrates the part-time priests, princes and hopeless chancers who dream of making it to Brazil, in defiance of the staggering odds stacked against them. It tells the story of teams who have struggled for their very existence through political and social turmoil, from which they will very occasionally emerge into international stardom. From the endlessly humiliated San Marino to lowly Haiti; from war-torn Lebanon to the oppressed and fleet-footed players of Eritrea, in Thirty-One Nil James Montague gets intimately and often dangerously close to some of the world's most extraordinary teams, and tells their exceptional stories.

    Nil Darpan; Or, the Indigo Planting Mirror
  • Author : Dinabandhu Mitra

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Drama
  • Nil Darpan; Or, the Indigo Planting Mirror: A Drama is a Bengali play depicting the plight of the farmers in Bengal during the Indigo Revolt of 1859. Written by Dinabandhu Mitra in real-time and published a year later, the drama reflects the realities of Bengali peasantry under the rule of the East India Trading Company. It recounts how the farmers were manipulated into a violent cycle of economic dependence by the indigo planters, the exploitation the people and the land, and the subsequent revolt. They were forced to plant indigo due to the demand for textiles, despite it degrading the soil. The drama was a critical text that shone a light on the horrific treatment many in Bengal experienced. It was translated into English by Reverend John Long in 1861, who also added an introduction and dispatched 500 copies in Official Government envelopes. This caused an uproar amongst many indigo planters and subsequently led to Long's arrest and short imprisonment. This edition by Read & Co. Classics features Bengali poet and playwright, Michael Madhusudan Dutt's translation and introduction, as well as a preface by the author himself. Also including a biographical sketch by Bankimchandra Chattopadhaya. It continues to be an interesting read for anyone interested in the cultural history of Bengal, especially whilst under the Company’s rule.

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Biography & Autobiography
  • "Founder of the Sora Hermitage, advocate of scete monasticism, editor of the Slavic translations of the Lives of early and medieval Greek, Egyptian, and Levantine ascetics, and writer on hesychasm (stillness), Nil (1433/34-1508) shines as Russia's 'great elder'. As the only medieval native spiritual teacher, he was studied by later Russian monks and nuns along with his models and distant mentors, the monastic Fathers of the Christian East." "Working from original sources, David Goldfrank allows Nil to speak in his own voice and, uniquely, identifies his slavic sources. No longer idealized and isolated from mainstream Orthodoxy as a figure uniquely tolerant for his age, Nil is shown to have been in the thick of a typically brutal medieval struggle for the defense of his church and the purity of his faith, as well as being a gifted teacher and writer."--BOOK JACKET.
