The Living Witness of the Holy Mountain: Contemporary Voices from Mount Athos
translated with an introduction by Hieromonk Alexander (Golitzin)

The Living Witness of the Holy Mountain: Contemporary Voices from Mount Athos translated with an introduction by Hieromonk Alexander (Golitzin)
  • Description
  • Reviews

In these pages we see the simplicity and truth of the Gospel reflected in anecdotes of contemporary Fathers of the Holy Mountain; we read of the connection between the light of Christ's Transfiguration on Mount Tabor, and Orthodox monastic spirituality; we learn how St. Herman of Alaska, America's first Orthodox saint, was in a sense a gift of Athos to America.

Several writings by Archimandrite Aemilianos, Abbot of Simonos Petras monastery on Mount Athos, set forth the critical importance of the spiritual father and the Jesus prayer in an Orthodox monastery, and the link between monasticism and martyrdom.

Also included is the Tomos of Mount Athos in Defense of the Holy Hesychasts — an important Orthodox doctrinal document, written in the fourteenth century by St. Gregory Palamas and signed by the elders of the Holy Mountain.
