St. Maria Skobtova in a new light
This article is a chronicle to the book Maria Skobţova. Orthodox Saint Victim of the Nazism (1891-1945) (Renașterea Publishing House, 2017), signed by Laurence Varaut. It is a valuable book of great use to the reader who wants to find out more about the biography of the one to whom the volume is dedicated to, and about the history of the Russian exile in France, a work dedicated to a personality who created bridges between spiritualties, who understood her vocation beyond its formal borders, and who managed to emphasize, in a rare manner in the history of Orthodoxy, the universal vocation of Christianity manifested in the nonsensical love for the neighbor.
