Άγιον Όρος: η κιβωτός της Ορθοδοξίας

The Mount Athos Foundation of America (MAFA) and the Mount Athos Center of Thessaloniki (Αγιορειτική Εστία) are pleased to announce an exhibition, Mount Athos: The Ark of Orthodoxy, intended to evoke for American viewers the sense of a virtual pilgrimage to the monasteries of the Holy Mountain. This exhibition, to be on display at the Maliotis Center for about two months, will feature one panel for each of the 20 Athonite monasteries tracing their history and traditions, plus additional panels pertaining to life on the Holy Mountain.

The Exhibition will open with a celebratory event beginning at 1:00 on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. The theme of the celebration will be Reflections on a Day on Mount Athos. The preliminary agenda includes speeches by Archbishop Elpidophoros, Bishop Athenagoras of Nazianzos, a representative from the Holy Community, and a visiting Athonite monk. A banquet will be accompanied by an exclusive showing of a recently discovered 1929 Athos Documentary Film, followed by a discussion on this pictorial record of life and architecture of the ancient Athonite monasteries.

Please plan on joining us for this celebration, the first-ever collaboration of MAFA and the Mount Athos Center.
