Some of the story plots are:
Father Sergius - Beginning with his childhood and following with a successful career in the military and general high society, Prince Stepan Kasatsky discovers on the eve of his wedding his fiancée's affair with his beloved Tsar Nicholas I. Upset and disturbed, he retreats to the arms of the Russian Orthodoxy and becomes a monk. Many years of humility and doubt follow, and now a hermit, he performs miracles upon the village natives. Moments of temptation test his faith, and unfortunate instances of female provocation leads to his failure.*
Wisdom of Children (also translated as Little Girls Wiser than Men) is a short story first published in 1885. It takes the form of a parable about forgiveness.*
Leo Tolstoy, or Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy (1828 1910), was a Russian writer widely regarded as one of the greatest novelists of all time. His masterpieces, War and Peace and Anna Karenina, represent the peak of realist fiction in their scope, breadth and vivid depiction of 19th-century Russian life and mind.*
Tolstoy's further talents as essayist, dramatist, and educational reformer made him the most influential member of the aristocratic Tolstoy family. His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Gandh and Martin Luther King, Jr.*
