Produktbeschreibung
Greeks and Russians had coexisted on Athos for eight centuries, but from 1839 to the eve of the First World War their relations disintegrated. This book looks at the causes of this deterioration against the background of Balkan and European history, and examines the Prophet Elijah Skete, with which the modern story of the Russian Athonite community begins and is concluded. Hitherto, most of what has been written about the Russians on Athos has been from either a Greek or a Russian perspective. This book takes an objective view of the conflict. The author breaks new ground by using unpublished archive material, much of which has survived only on his microfilm.

Rezensionen
"Wer sich in das russische Athosmönchtum einlesen möchte, findet in der Arbeit von Fennell eine gut lesbare Zusammenfassung." (Georg Seide, Orthodoxes Forum)
"Fennell's book...contains many pages of outstanding new research on the Holy Mountain, a subject which, as he illustrates all too clearly, is still largely obscure to the world at large." (Michael Bourdeaux, Journal of Ecclesiastical History)
"What characterises this book, an indispensable addition to Athonite literature, is a command of the subject with the ability to apprecitate the Russian and Greek points of view." (William Barlow, The Catholic Herald)
"'The Russians on Athos' is an excellent and indispensable contribution to the study of modern Athos." (Hieromonk Gregory, Orthodox Tradition)
"This new book represents a pioneering study in English of the role of the Russians in the life of Athos." (Nikolai Lipatov, Friends of Mount Athos Annual Report)
