Klaus Kenneth was born in Czechoslovakia in 1945. He began his studies in Germany in 1965, but his hectic life and wandering around the world and religions did not allow him to complete his studies until 1981. He taught physics education in Swiss Secondary Education for about twenty years. After many sufferings and wanderings, he became acquainted with Orthodoxy through Elder Sophronius of Essex, and became Orthodox in 1986. He has translated many works of the Church Fathers into German, as well as some works of Elder Sophronius, with his consent and approval of the Elder himself. Today he is retired. His permanent residence is in Switzerland, but he goes around the world talking about faith in Christ, making many people convert to Orthodoxy.
