Anchored in God: An Inside Account of Life, Art, and Thought on the Holy Mountain of Athos

   
by Constantine Cavarnos

“This book is a result of three journeys to the Holy Mountain of Athos: one in 1952, another in 1954, and a third in 1958. I have drawn mostly from the experiences and observations of my last two journeys, because I took very few notes during my first visit, whereas I kept a full account of what I saw, heard, felt, and thought during the second and third. The purpose of these journeys was to acquire a better knowledge and understanding of Eastern Orthodox monasticism by studying it directly in its purest form; and also to improve my knowledge and understanding of the traditional, liturgic arts of Orthodoxy by coming into direct contact with some of the finest examples of Byzantine architecture, painting, and music.”
