The monks who came to Holy Trinity Monastery from Eastern Europe after World War II inherited a tradition of printing that stretches back almost to the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century. Through the fathers’ tireless efforts, the Printshop of St. Job of Pochaev has been publishing Orthodox Christian books for over sixty years. At first, these books were sold from a table in the monastery office to pilgrims, visitors, and churches all over the world.  During the dark years of the Soviet Union, the monastery played an integral role in keeping the Orthodox Faith alive amidst stark oppression by smuggling Bibles, liturgical books, and other materials behind the Iron Curtain.  Even today, many Russian clergy and faithful remember the days when the only Orthodox books they could get their hands on were published in Jordanville.
