Two Modern Greek Titans of Mind and Spirit: The Private Correspondence of Constantine Cavarnos and Photios Kontoglou (1952–1965)

$18.95

 Product Description

Author: Archimandrite Patapios (trans.)

Format: Paperback

Pages: 245

The correspondence between the famous artist, iconographer, literary figure, and modern Greek cultural titan Photios Kontoglou, who died in 1965, and Constantine Cavarnos, the Greek-American philosopher, writer, translator, Byzantinist, and spiritual writer and guide, a virtual titan of Eastern Orthodox intellectuals in the West, who died in 2011, is very little known. Only occasional excerpts from their correspondence have appeared in print. The present collection of letters represents the vast bulk of that correspondence. While all of the letters in the collection were written by Kontoglou to Cavarnos, in almost every instance they make clear reference to the subjects and topics covered in the exchanges between the two, with frequent direct restatements of comments and ideas contained in the latter’s letters. On that account, we feel justified in characterizing the missives presented in this volume, which span a period of nearly a decade and a half, as correspondence between the two. —From the Introduction
