In this clearly written and fascinating book, Professor Cavarnos explains the aims and means of monasticism on Mt. Athos. He describes the monks' daily routine of activities, including private and corporate prayer or worship, study and work. He elicits the views of the monks on monasticism, contemporary man, philosophy, solitude, fasting, prayer and other topics. An authority on Byzantine art, Dr, Cavarnos gives detailed observations of superb frescoes and panel icons, pointing out the role they play in the life of the monks, and also deals with the architecture of the churches and the music that is sung there. For those interested in Eastern Orthodox Christianity, in Byzantine art, and the Greek and Slavic mind and tradition, reading this book will be a stimulating and rewarding experience. - From the Publisher
