Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers


By many mansions (John 14:2) the Saviour meant the different degrees of existence in the other world. The kingdom is one, but within it there are many divisions, according to the difference in knowledge and virtue of those who enter therein, and to their degree of deification.

(1Cor 15:41) St. Gregory of Sinai (On Commandments and Dogmas no. 44)
