  Archimandrite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Archimandrite (Greek: ἀρχιμανδρίτης — archimandrites) is a title in the Eastern Orthodox Church for a superior abbot who has the supervision of several abbots and monasteries appointed by a bishop.
When the monastic supervision was passed to another episcopal official, Great Sakellarios ("sacristan"), the title of archimandrite became a honorary one for abbots of important monasteries, the title for an ordinary abbot being hegumenos.
An Archimandrite who is not the abbot of a monastery is styled "The Very Reverend Archimandrite" and one who is an abbot is styled "The Right Reverend Archimandrite".

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Archimandrite
Originally the archimandrite seems to have been only the superior or abbot of his own monastery; gradually, however, he came to exercise authority over a number of monasteries and by the eleventh the archimandrites of such monastic centres as Mount Athos, and Mount Olympus in Bithynia, were the equivalent of our Western abbots-general.
The archimandrite is appointed by ecclesiastical authority (patriarch, metropolitan, bishop), also in Russia, by the Holy Synod, and in some monasteries by election.
Archimandrites enjoy the right of precedency among other priests; among themselves this right is regulated by the dignity of their origin; thus an archimandrite of Constantinople outranks those of inferior episcopal appointments.

 Archimandrite - OrthodoxWiki
An archimandrite (literally, "chief of a sheepfold") is a celibate priest who has been elevated to an honorific rank, one level lower than bishop.
Archimandrites are usually styled Right Reverend and are the equivalent of archpriests among the married clergy, though of higher rank.
In Greek usage, archimandrite was originally equivalent to igumen, the traditional title for an abbot of a monastery, but after the 6th century came to refer to the abbots of particularly large or important monasteries, often having multiple monasteries under his care.

 St Silouan the Athonite   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
He is the spiritual son of the founder of the Monastery, the late and highly revered Archimandrite Sophrony (Sakharov), the disciple of St. Silouan the Athonite (+1938).
Having lived as the disciple of Archimandrite Sophrony for 27 years at St. Panteleimon Monastery of the Holy Mountain, he was familiar with many of the intimate details of Father Sophrony's relationship with St. Silouan.
Another theme that Archimandrite Zacharias emphasized was "prayer for the whole world." Following the living experience of his saintly predecessors, Father Zacharias described how true prayer of the spirit realizes the ontological unity of humanity.

Archimandrite Zinon: I did indeed take communion at a Catholic Mass which was celebrated by the Catholic priest Father Romano Scalfi in the church of the Mirozh monastery, which had not yet been consecrated.

 Shenouda the Archimandrite - OrthodoxWiki
Saint Abba Shenouda (Shenoute) the Archimandrite (348-466 A.D.) was the abbot of the White Monastery of Atribe in the desert of Thebes, Egypt, for more than 65 years.
He is called Archimandrite (the head of anchorites) because he used to practice the hermetic (isolated) life from time to time, and he also used to encourage some of his monks to withdraw to the desert after a few years of coenobetic life (living together in monastic community).
It was an age in which the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus was convened, followed by the council of Chalcedon which started the rift between the churches.

But what—more than anything else—manifests the imprint of God on the human soul is the power of desire (eros) within the soul…and the impetus which a sanctified eros leads the soul in its movements towards its divine archetype.
The author of this work, The Eros of Repentance, Archimandrite George, by means of this play on words nonetheless concludes that sexual attraction is a natural desire, implanted within us by God Himself, and leads us towards Him.
This opinion of Archimandrite George is not shared by St. Isaac the Syrian, who writes: "There are three means by which every rational soul can draw close to God: by burning faith, or fear, or the Lord's instruction.

 Archimandrite Dionysios Interview, 'The Enemy Within'
Ironic because, despite the decidedly modern means of his communication, upon receiving it, I felt as though I had been transported back in time a thousand years to an era when the art of writing epistles was a revered and studied form of spiritual discourse.
For proof that this attainment is possible—an attainment considered to be the singular purpose of human life and the very lifeblood of all Orthodox aspiration—the Orthodox point always to one place: their two-thousand-year legacy of saints, a lineage of holy men and women unbroken since the time of the apostles.
It was this spirit of generosity and passion for the monastic life that would before long bring invitations from Europe and America and eventually lead him away from the "mountain of silence" he called his home to help guide others along their way.

 The Patristic Position and the Witness of Archimandrite Justin (Popovich) Regarding Ecumenism
This is a clear formulation of the ecclesiological heresy known as the Branch Theory: that the one and great Christian Church is comprised of its constituent Christian communities.
The Church of Serbia entered the W.C.C. in 1965 (2); thereafter, as Patriarch German began to participate actively in the ecumenical movement—in fact, immediately after his aforementioned declaration—, the ever-memorable dogmatist, Archimandrite Justin (Popovich), ceased to consider him an Orthodox Hierarch and ceased his canonical commemoration, as well as all ecclesiastical relations with him.
It is hence noteworthy that the Patriarch did not attend the funeral of Father Justin (†March 25, 1979)….
