Evlogeite! A Pilgrim's Guide to Greece takes you on a fascinating journey through two thousand years of Greek-Christian history, often unknown in the West. From majestic cathedrals to sun-washed hilltop monasteries and village shrines, this is the first comprehensive guide to the holy places where the Greeks themselves go. Indispensible to Orthodox Christians, travelers, adventurers, and armchair historians, Evlogeite! includes historical and cultural notes on each site, along with detailed lives of the saints associated with them. Accompanying the text are hundreds of photos of Orthodox churches, monasteries, icons, and contemporary Christian life, as well as troparia (short prayers), listings of church and monastery feast-days, detailed maps and directions for getting there, a Greek-English pilgrim's phrase list and more! The author, an Orthodox Christian nun, spent over a decade reseaching and writing this 960 page guide for English speaking pilgrims to Christian Greece.
