    The documentary, Wim, is a videofilm called Mount Athos, Mountain of Silence. Its from the Greek Ministry of Culture. I saw the film the first time in the middle of the nineties.

    Dear Athos Web Log Host!

    Thanks for your great website and regular updates. It is always so inspiring and informative to visit your web log. I am wondering if you have in your archives photos from the venerable Papa Stephanos of Karoulia +2001? Some remarkable memories of him have been captured in Athos photo collections here and there, especially a French volume (which we cannot find!). Maybe you could post a section in his memory one day, or use our email . . In Christ, Stephan
