Alexander Schmemann's Journals

Fr. Michael Plekon has a review in the forthcoming issue of Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies of the longer version (924pp. + 16pp. of photos) of Alexander Schmemann's journals published last year in Paris in French: Alexandre Schmemann, Journal (1973-1983) (Paris: Éditions des Syrtes, 2009).

Fr. Michael notes that a much fuller, richer portrait of Schmemann emerges here--more so than what one got from the heavily edited excerpts of his journal published by SVS Press in 2000. In his review, he notes that "this is a publication of immense importance and worth" for many reasons he discusses in detail.
