Mount Athos - The Holy Mountain - Books about MonasticismMount Athos - The Holy Mountain - Books about Monasticism
Mount Athos is the traditional heart of Orthodox Byzantine monasticism, and has been the home of an unbroken monastic life since the ninth century. It remains, now in the twenty-first century, one of the centres of the Orthodox monastic tradition throughout the world.

It has served as a home to the hesychastic tradition and locus of such great figures as St Gregory Palamas and countless others. Known as the 'Garden of the Mother of God', it remains a great home of pilgrimage and prayer. On this page you will find books (some very rare)about or relating to Mount Athos, the Holy Mountain.
