Eastern Orthodoxy and the Burning Bush Movement in Bucharest

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 26 ธ.ค. 2023
  • A particularly striking episode in the history of Romanian Communism was the birth and decline of a unique spiritual movement called the Burning Bush Group (Rugul Aprins), which was founded by the summer of 1943. Under the inspiration of a Russian monk, Ivan Kulîghin (“John the Stranger”), this association of laymen and clergymen located primarily at Bucharest’s Antim Monastery engaged in prayer, scriptural meditation, and philosophical reflection.
    From 1943 to 1947, after barely escaping the Bolshevik persecution in his homeland, Fr. John of Optina Pustyn decided to teach his Romanian disciples the art of incessant prayer known as the “Jesus Prayer,” described in The Pilgrim’s Tale.
    After he managed to impart the wisdom of the Hesychast tradition to his new Orthodox friends, the fugitive monk was again arrested and deported to Siberia, where he died.
