I also think Fr.Damascene's book made this clear. When I read it I never saw any mention of Met.Cyprian except mentioning the booklet he wrote, as an Archimandrite, about a woman's life after death experience. From what I recall Fr.Seraphim's relationship with the HTM went sour due to the monastery's abbot, Fr.Panteleimon, praising the 'New Dogma of Redemption' which at the time was being praised by Bishop, later Metropolitian, Vitaly with a new edition of Met.Khrapovitsky's book being published. Outside of this I recall Fr.Seraphim mentioning in one or two of his essays that the disputes amongst the Greek Old Calendarists was disheartening.-ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶-+-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦-+-+ -Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¥-+-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦-+-+-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¦ said:Dear Nektarios,
I think for the majority of your points, I am happy to leave it as us agreeing to disagree. Now we can get back on topic of this thread.
One clarification here is that Fr Seraphim Rose was close to the Greek Old Calendarists before they even came in to communion with ROCOR. The Greek he speaks of this way were HTM and not the GOC or Cyprianites as his biographers have footnoted in various versions.
