Did you know...

That the Parthenon in Athens was a Christian church longer than it was a pagan temple?

That Greece, one-third the size of California, has more than 1,000 active monasteries?

That the monastic enclave of Mt. Athos is the oldest self-governing republic in the world?

Evlogeite! A Pilgrim’s Guide to Greece takes you on a fascinating and unforgettable journey through two thousand years of Greek-Christian history largely unknown in the West. From majestic cathedrals to sun-washed hilltop monasteries and little known village shrines – the first comprehensive guide to the holy places where the Greeks themselves go.

Indispensable to Orthodox Christians, travelers, adventurers, and armchair historians, the guide includes historical and cultural notes on each holy 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!

Evlogeite! The centuries-old greeting of Greek pilgrims asking a blessing at their journey’s end… Why not join them?
