1206 – more Athos books

In the last months I collected images of a few “new” Athos books. First three old ones:

Stanislas Neyrat- L’Athos, D’une excursion a la presqu’ile et a la montagne des moines, 1880, in French with black and white pictures

And this issue of Leica fotografie magazine from 1963, although I’m not sure if this picture is taken on Mt. Athos, because the interiour of this church does not look like an Athos church and I cannot remember seeing this type of stained glass on Athos. It is said that Athos pictures can be seen in this magazine, does anyone know?

    It is definitely not a Athos church (as far as I know). The architecture does not fit, as far as I can see in this context an iconostasis is missing as well as wallpaintings. Also the ‘chairs’ look more like ‘kneeling benches’ and on Athos ‘chairs’ are not placed in this way. Besides that, an icon of a saint is not hanging on a wall, you cannot venerate it.

    I would add to the above comment that to me the two monastics in the photo look more like women.

    Enjoying your blog.
