Greece’s Dostoevsky: The Theological Vision of Alexandros Papadiamandis

   
Anestis Keselopoulos
Foreword by Hieromonk Alexis (Trader)
Translated from the Greek, compiled, edited, and with an introduction, notes, and glossary by Herman A. Middleton

“The question of the relationship between art and the spiritual life of Orthodox Christians is a topic that is both ancient and contemporary. The publication of Greece’s Dostoevsky provides an opportunity to revisit this question, for Alexandros Papadiamandis is an example of a faithful churchman who was also a dedicated artist. Orthodox thinkers have not thoroughly addressed this important issue, which affects Orthodox throughout the world, especially those living in a modern Western society increasingly influenced and informed by art.”
