Stages in researching the life and work of Saint Anthim the Iberian and the recent contribution of archim. Mihail Stanciu
The article is an inventory of the researches of the life and works of Saint Anthim the Iberian in the Romanian culture, emphasizing the research undertaken by the archimandrite Mihail Stanciu. Archimandrite Mihail Stanciu, in collaboration with Gabriel Stanciu, brought some clarifications on St. Anthim’s date and place of birth, as well as his education, and was responsible for translating and publishing an original volume of Letters, pointing out (even if not entirely, yet) the main moments of Saint Anthim’s biography from the period before his arrival in Wallachia and before placing himself in the service of the Romanian Orthodox Church.
