Join us for a trip around the world, and back in time to visit a unique monastic community founded in the third century. Traveler and historian, Victor Croasdale will provide a rare look at an important center of Eastern Orthodox Monasticism, with traditions that extend back to the Byzantine era. With 20 monasteries, this narrow peninsula provides near isolation for more than 2,000 monks who live the ascetic life. This is a free program, open to the public.
