A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Triandafilos Patraskidis, Painter, Professor and Dean at the Athens School of Fine
"A swarming of lives – the impetuousness of horses, with their hoofs to the air and nostrils erected, is brought to life in Igor Bogojević’s exceptional drawings.
Bogojević makes use of the ink’s density and of his tracing with a particularly synthetical, agglutinative concern. He evinces an amalgamation of lives in moments where instinct gives room to the intrincacy of motion, and of vigor in forms displayed; it also opens up space to the faultless integrality of the horses and to the conflict revealed in their delinearment – an attribute that have inspired many artists from time to time .
Igor Bogojević successfully interprets place, color and plasticity, fragments, speed, the deterrence brought by the wielding of inks. The pleasant shades of grey help construct the particular , peculiar atmosphere which seems to entice the artist.
The coherence in the course of evolution of his work shall let anyone perceive its natural consistency and incontestable quality."
Athens, July 30th 2004

Daniel Lacomme
"The Art of Igor Bogojevic surprises first by the force of the expression. Then when the subject appears, it surprises us by its imaginative power. But this expressiveness and this imagination are not literary. These are pictorial values first of all. This is one strong work, which prints in our feelings and our memory, as certain dreams which we always remember and which keep more reality than many lived things. The subject as the plastic interest in this painter, in the drawings as in the paintings,is remarkable and is promising for the future."
Paris, 03.07.2011.

Bishop Jovan (Mladenović)

(1994–2002)

The Divine provision brought the spiritual father of the Monastery Studenica, Bishop Jovan, to continue the work left by the equally most esteemed and humblest spiritual father of the Monastery Hilandar, Bishop Chrysostom.

As an accomplished monastic with the spiritual wealth he attained in the Studenica Monastery, he enriched his flock and clergy. Very soon he gained respect and confidence of his clergy and the faithful.

Bishop Jovan was born in 1950 of father Radojko and mother Stana Mladenović in the village of Dobrace, near Arilje, Serbia. He finished elementary school in his village. At the age of twelve, he went to the Klisura Monasteiy where he remained for one year and then went to the Studenica Monastery. He attended the monastic school in the Ostrog Monastery from 1967 until 1969. He was ordained a hierodeacon in the Studenica Monastery on April 25, 1971. He retained his baptized name of Jovan. Rt. Rev. Vasilije, Bishop of Žiča ordained him as hieromonk in 1973. He graduated from St. Sava Seminary in Belgrade in 1974 and from Theologcial College in Belgrade in 1980.

The Thunderbolt of Ever-Living Fire

by archimandrite Vasileios of Iveron

The present book consists of Elder Vaileios' talks, discussions and dialogues in various venues mostly in the United States during his visit in 2011, along with excerpts from his writings selected to complement the themes of his talks.  The themes dealt with by Fr. Vasileios so eloquently in this book are extraordinarily wide-ranging; he handles complex and difficult issues in theology, spirituality, liturgics, parish life and monasticism with amazing clarity and insight.  He quotes with equal facility from figures as diverse as Heraclitus, Dostoevsky, St. Isacc the Syrian, St. Maximus the Confessor, Stefan Zweig, Andrei Tarkovsky, Vladimir Lossy, Georges Florovsky and St. Nicholas Cabasilas.  Above all, there is an exhilarating sense of freedom and innocence in his thought.  It is the freedom and innocence of profound faith and spiritual knowledge and childlike simplicity.  HIs wisnow is expressed via the "hyperlogic" of a hesychastic spriti, which makes for surprising connections and illuminating insights.

The appearance of this new book by Archimandrite Vaileios is truly a cuase for celebration.
