Book of the Life of St. Philothea of Athens
This beautifully iconographic book tells of the life of St. Philothea of Athens, The Great Martyr who gave all that she had and all that she was to serve God and others, especially those in need. The story of her great faith and works inspires all of us and is a witness to God's love through the most troubling of times.
The book was originally written in Greek by Sister Philothea in Athens, Greece and was translated by the community of St. Philothea Greek Orthodox Church in Athens, Georgia on the commemoration of their Homecoming Anniversary.
The icons are used by permission by Aggeliki Galanopoulou and are a beautiful portrayal of her life as it unfolds on this very special book. It is our hope that you treasure it as much as we do!
