St. Photios the Great

   
By Asterios Gerostergios

“St. Photios the Great (820-891), Patriarch of Constantinople, was a great Orthodox spiritual and intellectual leader, the most important of his time, and a truly holy man. Yet his life and works are far from having received the attention they deserve. As a result, he has been seriously misunderstood and even maligned in the West. There is not a single work in English that gives a full andtrue picture of Photios’ personality and contributions. The present book by the Rev. Dr. Asterios Gerostergios, of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, comes to meet the need for such a work.”
