505 – Brewster: The 6000 beards of Athos

A very strange book (1935) which give you the impression that almost every monk has homosexual tendencies. I read a comment here: ” If its true it is shocking, if its not true its even more shocking”.

    Just finished reading the book. Interesting was to read that monks that have “misbehaved” themselves were banned to the island of Amouliani, opposite of Ouranopolis! Wim
