Modern Orthodox Saints 07: St Nectarios of Aegina

This volume is devoted to one of the most recent officially recognised Saints of Greece, Nectarios Kephalas, Metropolitan of Pentapolis (1846-1920) who established Holy Trinity Convent on the island of Aegina, where he led a monastic life from 1908 to 1920. Widely known among the Orthodox as a great miracle-worker, particularly as a healer of every sort of disease, St Nectarios was a many-sided personality. He was a prolific writer, theologian, philosopher, moralist, educator, poet, ascetic and mystic. "The extent and character of his writings" remarks Professor Cavarnos, "place St Nectarios among the great educators, moralists and religious philosophers of modern Greece and among the holy Fathers and Teachers of the Orthodox Church." -- Backcover
