Translated from the Greek by Leo Papadopulos and Holy Transfiguration Monastery
“This present volume brings together a collection of many of the saints of that second Holy Land, the island of Cyprus. Cyprus was a Greek speaking part of the Roman Empire and the center of the worship of Aphrodite, the goddess of eros, and as such a focus of iniquity, corruption, and deprivation. During the early years of the first century after the crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ, the holy apostles Paul and Barnabas with St. Mark sailed there to preach the gospel. The island was forever changed. Since that time Cyprus has produced more saints than the whole mainland of Greece. Even now its sons populate the monasteries of Mt. Athos and protect the shrines of the Holy Land. One such Cypriot was Father Philoumonos who gave his life for Christ at the hand of a fanatical Jew at Jacob’s well.” —“Introduction”
