1738 – book: Athonite moments 1993

This photo book is published in 1993 by the Filiotheou monastery in English and German and it containes some extraordinary pictures. I found the book in the lobby of the Skites Bungalows near Ouranopolis. The (excellent) Skites cook Giannis frequently visits the Holy Mountain and he studies religious science at the university.

    The gentleman in the third photo with glasses is Polixronis the protector of the Skete of St. Andrew in Karyes (Sarai) up until 1993 or 1994 when the first monks began the restoration.
