Orthodox Christian Monasteries"
first-ever comprehensive "Atlas of American Orthodox Christian
Monasteries" has been released by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox
Bishops of the United States of America and its coordinator and
sociologist, Alexei Krindatch.
Drawing on extensive research, as well as fascinating stories and
"insider" anecdotes, the Atlas offers readers a scholarly
introduction into traditions of Eastern Christian monasticism and a
history of Orthodox monasteries in America, a full and comprehensive
directory of nearly 80 American Orthodox Christian monasteries, an
enticing travel guide for those seeking to visit American
monasteries and to "sample" monastic life.
In addition, twenty-three featured monasteries share their "personal
stories" and offer a glimpse in the surprising spiritual appeal of
monastic life in 21st century America.
150 pages of text are accompanied by four sets of color maps and
more than one hundred photographs depicting everyday lives of U.S.
Orthodox monasteries. The Atlas is "album size," 9x11".
The Atlas can be purchased ($19.95) on Amazon.com or directly from
