Steven Enich

Mr. Steven Enich (04/21/1923 – 10/10/2004) was a prominent Serbian-American lawyer, practicing primarily in Wisconsin. An amateur photographer as well as philanthropist, especially to the Serbian Orthodox cultural heritage, from approximately 1979 to 1994, he was given often unprecedented access to Serbian Orthodox cultural monuments in the former Yugoslavia. In the course of several trips there, he amassed a collection of almost 5,000 slides, the majority of which he took himself. Often, he would share these slides with interested groups, particularly among the Serbian Orthodox communities in the United States.

.

In 2006, his widow, Mrs. Irene Enich (nee Miller), hoping to ensure "continuing access to and the preservation of" this valuable collection, donated the entire collection and related valuable personal notes of Steven Enich to the Hilandar Research Library, where these visual materials can embellish the largely Eastern (and Serbian) Cyrillic Orthodox manuscripts on microfilm, which this special collection preserves and to which it creates access as the largest such collection in the world.

The Hilandar Research Library gratefully acknowledges the generosity of Mrs. Irene Enich, as well as the work of a number of individuals at The Ohio State University Libraries, and especially: Amy L. McCrory, Digital Imaging Technician, OSU Libraries Preservation Department, and Jennifer Breitigan, student assistant to A. McCrory; Melanie B. Schlosser, Metadata Librarian, Scholarly Resources Integration Department; Morag E. Boyd, Metadata Librarian, Special Collections Cataloging Department. In addition, it should be noted that the difficult and time-consuming task of identifying the slides and their contents was divided between Dr. Lyubomira Parpulova Gribble, Assistant Curator of the Hilandar Research Library, and Andrew J. Kier, Graduate Research Associate of the Resource Center for Medieval Slavic Studies.

The Steven Enich Serbian Orthodox Culture Slide Collection

In honoring Mrs. Enich's wishes, the Hilandar Research Library, through the OSU Libraries and Knowledge Bank, makes images of the vast majority of these slides broadly available through the Knowledge Bank. In addition, the original notes of S. Enich are also available as scanned images.

The Church at Prayer

by Archimandrite Aimilianos of Simonopetra

Publisher’s note

Many readers of the addresses of Elder Aimilianos, which have been published in the five-volume series, rchimandrite Aimilianos, Spiritual Instructions and Discourses (Ormylia, 1998-2003), have frequently expressed the wish for an abridged and more accessible form of his teaching. In response, we are happy to inaugurate a new series of publications incorporating key texts from the above-mentioned collection. Other considerations have also contributed o this new project, such as the selection of specific texts which address important, contemporary questions; the need for a smaller, more reader-friendly publication format; and the necessity for editing certain passages in need of clarification, without however altering their basic meaning.

Above all, the works collected in this volume reflect the importance which the Elder consistently attached to prayer, spirituality, community life, worship, and liturgy. Thus the experientially based works "On Prayer", and "The Prayer of the Holy Mountain", which deal primarily with the Prayer of the Heart, appear first, followed by the summary addresses on "The Divine Liturgy", and "Our Church Attendance". These are in turn followed by the more socially oriented discourses on "Our Relations with Our Neighbor", and "Marriage: The Great Sacrament". Finally, the present volume closes with the sermons on "Spiritual Reading" and "The Spiritual Life", which in a simple and yet compelling manner set forth the conditions for "ascending to heaven on the wings of the Spirit".

It is our hope that The Church at Prayer will meet the purpose for which it is issued and will serve as a ready aid and support for those who desire God and eternal life in Him.
