ICONS OF THE HOLY MONASTERY OF KARAKALLOU MOUNT ATHOS

Author: MONASTERY OF KARAKALLOU #: 8733

For the first time in its history Karakallou Monastery of Mount Athos is revealing its iconographic treasures to the general public. Karakallou Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries on Holy Mountain, is celebrating its millennium of uninterrupted coenobitic life with the publication of this richly illustrated volume devoted to its portable icons; thereby bringing to light a virtually unknown part of ancient Athonite culture and its spiritual heritage.

From among the hundreds of holy icons in the monastery`s possession, 152 were carefully selected for this edition. Historically, they span from the late 14th to the early 19th century and include masterpieces that are inaccessible to most of the monastery`s pilgrims. Quite significantly, the Karakallou monastery`s holdings feature the largest collection of works by Dionyssios of Fourna, a prominent byzantine iconographer of the 18th century.

THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

Author: SERGE VERHOVSKOY #: 10461
The five essays in this book offer the reader a concise, theological view of the fundamental doctrines of the Orthodox Church. Included are three pieces devoted to the general themes of Orthodoxy, Christ, and Christianity, and two more detailed studies on catholicity and Chalcedonian theology. All are sufficiently broad to be used by the average layman, yet penetrating enough to enrich the clergyman or scholar. And all have but one simple purpose: to present the teachings of the Church, not only as an object of investigation, but as a reality to be entered into, an invitation to come and be with Christ the Light of the world.

THE FAITH WE HOLD

Author: ARCHBISHOP PAUL OF FINLAND #: 10462

At the same time, as its author suggests, it may serve as "an Episcopal pastoral letter" for the Orthodox themselves, for it deals with Orthodox faith in its most basic elements, revealing with remarkable simplicity and directness its messages of salvation for all mankind.
