Les letters de Lev Gillet sont la transcription annotée de près d’une centaine de letters adressées à l’archevêque Cheptytsky. Elles couvrent la période pendant laquelle Gillet a été novice bénédictin en Angleterre, moine uniate en Ukraine puis prêtre orthodoxe en France. Durant la meme période, Cheptytsky est passé du camp de ceux qui espéraient <convertir la Russie> au statut d’<emprisonné dans son diocèse>.

Les letters clarifient divers aspects de la lutte interne entre églises catholiques et orthodoxes. Tous ces points et ces événements sont expliqués en de nombreuses annotations, qui font de ce livre une excellente source pour la petite histoire.

Ces letters jettent aussi une lumière sur la manière don’t un maître spiritual a affronté les défies du moment tout en étant confronté lui-même à une profonde crise spirituelle.

Pray for God’s Wisdom: The Mystical Sophiology of Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky

Andriy Chirovsky

The first major monograph on the spiritual core of Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky’s thought and life – his devotion to the Wisdom of God. Fr. Andriy Chirovsky studies the life and literary output of Metropolitan Andrey, looking for clues to a clearer understanding of the many levels of meaning that Wisdom-Sophia held for the saintly primate of the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church. Comparisons with the three Russian sophiologists (Solovyov, Bulgakov, and Florensky) show how much more rooted in the Tradition were the sophiological musings of Sheptytsky. xx, 279 pp.

Christian Social Ethics in Ukraine – the Legacy of Andrei Sheptytsky

Andrii Krawchuk

A stimulating study of the legacy of a remarkable religious leader who left his distinctive mark on twentieth-century Christian thought. A Catholic who defended the rights of persecuted Orthodox Christians and who saved Jews during the Holocaust, Andrei Sheptytsky transcended his own Polish and Latin-rite background, devoting his life to upholding universal Christian ideals among the Eastern-rite Catholics of Ukraine. Exhaustively docu­mented, this is the first analysis of an inspiring moral response to delicate Ukrainian-Polish and Catholic-Orthodox issues, socialism and communism, church-state relations and the Nazi occupation. xxiv, 404 pp.
