"The most impressive monograph in a Western language to date about a pre-modern Russian saint and his foundation ... Sergius was arguably the single most important, native, seminal figure in the flourishing of Russian rural and urban monasticism over most of these years."--David Goldfrank, Georgetown University

"A comprehensive survey of the subject. It conjures a clear picture of a major Russian saint and a major institution in the Russian religious, economic and social life of the late Middle Ages."--Pierre Gonneau, University of Paris-Sorbonne

"An extraordinarily multi-faceted portrait of the transformation of a small religious community established by a simple monk in the fourteenth century into a national spiritual center built around the burgeoning reputation of its founder as a miracle-working saint empowered by the special assistance of the protection of the Mother of God."--Ann Kleimola, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
