Mount Athos: The highest place on earth

   
Metropolitan Nikolaos of Mesogaia
Translated by Caroline Makropoulos

“This is no ordinary travel book, although at first it may seem so. The author is bound on an inner journey of the soul and the heart as much as an outward journey. His is a journey of discovery into the soul: it is a discovery of self and of his vocation, something at first he so little suspects and so vehemently rejects. Just as the author is startled by the ascetics who emerge suddenly out of their hiding places in the Athonite desert, so too are we startled by the newness and originality of his thought and manner of expression, his language and his way of looking at things. He and the characters he meets use images and metaphors from science, and especially from physics, to talk about the world of the spirit, challenging us to review and reappraise our conception of ‘saints’ and ‘saintliness’ and surprising us with visions of the heavenly in the here and now of this physical world.”
