Texts by I.M. Hadzifotis
German translation by Hanns Langenfass.
Patmos functions as if it were a stage-set for the Apocalypse: grey mountains, a silvery sea, yellow hillsides, towering rocks -and all the serenity of the Aegean landscape. At its centre stands the Monastery of St John the Divine, with its priceless manuscripts, its rare portable icons, and its precious sacred vessels. And beyond any doubt the most thrilling place of all is the cave where the Revelation was written.
