325 – Athos, a book from Yorgas Theotokas

This week I bought a dutch translation (1990) of the book of the Greek writer Yargos Theotokas (1905-1966) “The story of a journey to Athos”, written in 1961 (Odoiporicho tou Agion Oros in Greek). This book is part of a larger essay “A journey to the Middle East and the Holy Mountain”, also written by Theotokas. He visited The Holy Mountain in the summer of 1960, when Athos probably had the lowest number of monks ever and when the buildings were in a very bad condition.
More about this book in next blogs (more about books in 61).
