Priest Alexis Maximov’s Poetic Work
The article presents an analysis of poetic work of priest Alexis Maximov, a clergyman of St. Catherine the Great Martyr Church in Rome. A poet, scholar and spiritual pastor — these are the facets of the talented graduate of St. Tikhon’s Orthodox University of Humanities in Moscow, who later defended his doctoral thesis at the Pontifical Gregorian University of Rome. Alexis Maximov, who lives in the context of intercultural communication between Russia and Italy, extends his hand to the reader and invites him to take a journey together — a journey full of difficulties, misunderstandings and disappointments, but one which leads to the Truth, because only by finding it in oneself can one become really happy.
