    Fascinating, thoroughly and finely detailed, this story goes into the sometimes hilarious but altogether serious occurrence on The Holy Mountain during the early part of the last century I am glad I read it on my Kindle otherwise the names and tracking of same can be daunting for an English speaker As in all things Orthodox there are than enough details and sub details to keep a historian busy, but for the casual reader interested in an enjoyable and fascinating, earthly view of how men can behave, I can recommend this read to than an esoteric group.
