Russia and the Universal Church


Hailed as one of the greatest thinkers of the 19th Century, Vladimir Solovyev has a message for the 21st century.

Solovyev is the prophet for the reunion of the Russian Orthodox Church with the Catholic Church. His exposition of the ‘Petrine Mystery,’ its purpose, breadth and existence in our day, will enlighten and enthral you as you gain new knowledge and insights into Christ’s Church as Christ established it, and meant it to be for all times.

A saint as yet unproclaimed, Solovyev led a life of Franciscan austerity and charity, dying at the age of 47 after exhausting his life in the cause of Christ.

In this, possibly his greatest work, Vladimir Solovyev’s holiness permeates ‘Russia and the Universal Church’ as he calls for the fulfilment of Christ’s prayer, “That they all may be one.” (John 17:21) “One Lord, one Faith, one baptism.” (Eph 4:5)

This edition of ‘Russia and the Universal Church’ is enlarged with a Preface by Dr. William G. von Peters, Ph.D., a Foreword by Giacomo Cardinal Biffi, and Appendices by Fr. Georges de Nantes on Solovyev’s life and work.

Paperback. 278pp.
