discussions, but rather about form and attitude -- more what we might be
interested in for persona play than for personal growth. The latter is not
appropriate for this list.
But for persona play -- it seems to me that books on modern Orthodoxy would
give us a good insight into period practices, since books on medieval
Orthodoxy (especially in Russia) are rather rare and seldom sufficiently
accurate, even more so in English.
