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.”

    Second Edition, Reprinted with additions By Constantine Cavarnos Volume 3 of [link BKC001S]Modern Orthodox Saints[/link] “St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite was born in 1749 in Naxos, one of the Aegean islands. He received his elementary education there. His teacher was Archimandrite Chrysanthos Aitolos, (d. 1785), brother of St. Cosmas. A distinguished teacher, Chrysanthos taught for a time at the Patriarchal school at Constantinople before he became Director of the school in Naxos. He shared Cosmas’ sentiments and convictions; and thus the powerful message and example of the saint of Aitolia began to influence Nicodemos at a very early age, when Cosmas was traveling about as a missionary.” —“Introductory” CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTORY THE LIFE OF SAINT NICODEMOS    By Gerasimos Micragiannanitis, of Mount Athos WORKS OF THE SAINT WRITINGS OF THE SAINT SELECTED PASSAGES FROM THE THE WORKS OF ST.
