*Orthodox Way of Life blog [http://orthodoxwayoflife.blogspot.com/2009/11/is-man-responsible-for-condition-of.html Is Man Responsible for the Condition of the Environment?] Although this post does not directly address the question of evolution, it does present a thoroughly literal interpretation of the Genesis creation account.

Seraphim's book on creation; [http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/evolution_frseraphim_kalomiros.aspx "Genesis and Early Man: The Orthodox patristic understanding"], a letter to Dr. Alexandre Kalomiros.
*[[Luke (Voino-Yasenetsky) of Simferopol and Crimea|Voino-Yasenetsky, St Luke]], [http://www.impantokratoros.gr/8C1597E5.en.aspx "Science and Religion"] In a fuller version of this work he writes: "Darwinism, which declares that man, by means of evolution, has developed from the lower species of animals, and is not a product of the creative act of the Godhead, has turned out to be merely a supposition, a hypothesis, which has become obsolete even for science. This hypothesis has been acknowledged as contradictory not only to the Bible, but to nature itself, which jealously strives to preserve the purity of each species, and knows of no transition even from a sparrow to a swallow. There are no known facts of a transition of an ape into a man." "Nakuya i religiya" (Science and Religion), Troitskoye slovo (Trinity Word), 2001, pp. 41-42, as quoted in Fr. Seraphim Rose, "Genesis, Creation, and Early Man" (2011), p. 809.
