National Geographic photographs of Vatopedi from 1916

27 Μαρτίου 2009
After arriving in Dafni in march 1916 mr. Dwight went to Karyes to get his permission to stay, supported by a letter of recommendation of the Patriarch of Constantinople. In those days you got four stamps of different members of the Holy Epistasia, forming an image of the Virgin. After visiting the Protaton and Koutloumousiou the writer goes to Vatopedi, where his story stops. I wonder why he shows pictures of Lavra and Kafsokalivia and does not describe anything about these places…………
