A few weeks ago, Matushka Mary Naumenko sat down with Protodeacon Peter Markevich of Holy Trinity Publications to discuss her new book, Restoring the Inner Heart: The Nous in Dostoevsky’s Ridiculous Man [Holy Trinity Seminary Press; Jordanville, NY. 978–1‑942699–125].
Matushka Mary has been involved in parish ministry for thirty-five years together with her husband, Archpriest Gregory Naumenko, rector of the Protection of the Mother of God Church in Rochester, NY. She is the translator of two books of spiritual counsel from Russian into English: Letters to Spiritual Children (Nikodemos Orthodox Publication Society) and Striving Toward God: Spiritual Advice for Daily Living (Holy Trinity Publications) as well as the author of five books in the Lives of Saints for Young People series published by Holy Trinity Monastery.
Matushka is also very much at home in this space, as she and Fr. Gregory spent many years as translators, compilers, and editors of Orthodox Life, for which we express our immense gratitude.
Mary Naumenko earned an M.A. in Humanities through The Great Books Honors College at Faulkner University (Montgomery, AL). Her Master’s thesis on the patristic concept of the nous in the writings of Dostoevsky provided the initial impetus for her book.
