Looking at the lives of the widow Tuchkova, hermit Anastasiia, peasant Matrona Naumova, to the aristocratic Aleksandra Shmakova and the Abbess Taisiia, this volume examines how these women created environments that combined monastic solitude with a community of like-minded women. Brenda Meehan seeks to demonstrate the sources and qualities of their holiness, and show how each woman represented a particular facet of Orthodox spirituality. The book also explores the aspects of women's religious ideals, including community, service, and reconciliation, that marked the religious communities founded by these women.
