What is Unique About Orthodox Culture

by Archimandrite Vasileios, Abbot of Iveron Monastery, Mount Athos
Translated from the Greek by Dr. Elizabeth Theokritoff

Number Twelve of Series: “Mount Athos”

“[This...]text shows the way towards a beginning in spiritual life. And it can become a guide for each person, wherever he lives on earth, and for every society, regardless of its racial, cultural or religious origins; to give it the possibility of being grafted into the beautiful and bountiful olive-tree, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, the ‘tabernacle of God with men’; and so, to transfigure whatever good it has into an eternal value; like ‘the Hellenism of dogma, of the Liturgy and of the icon’ which ‘became the eternal category of Christianity’ (Fr. George Florovsky) and is discussed in this book. Reading it, we may realise that, not only ‘the position of the Greek people is a privileged and dangerous one’[...], but also by extension that the position of all people, as icons of God, is equally privileged and dangerous. The Orthodox Church invites us all to personally come and light the candle of our beings from the flame of Lord’s Resurrection.”
