Russian Ascetics of Piety was the most extensive work compiled by St Nicodemus, Bishop of Belgorod. This multi-volume set was originally published by the Athonite Monastery of St. Panteleimon between the years 1906 - 1910. It contains a large collection of the lives of holy ascetics of the 18th and 19th centuries. Since the publication of this work, many of these ascetics have been recognized as saints. The compiler himself died as a martyr at the hands of the Communists in 1919.
