Volume Five of New Library

“It was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation of Professor Constantine Cavarnos and his learned associate, the Reverend Father Dr. Asterios Gerostergios, on behalf of the Institute for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, to author the fifth volume in the popular series New Library. This acclaimed series of critical reviews and evaluations of books in the fields of ancient, Byzantine, and modern Greek studies, Russian thought, and Eastern Orthodox spirituality, initiated by Dr. Cavarnos, was inspired by the famous Bibliotheke (Library) or Myriobiblion of the ninth-century Orthodox luminary, St. Photios the Great, to whom many attribute the ‘invention’ of the book review. The extensive analyses and reviews of the several hundred books found in the Saint’s Library constitute an encyclopedic feat widely praised by the literati of his day. New Library has earned similar accolades from contemporary research experts in the fields which it covers. ...The present volume of New Library is dedicated to reviews of a large number of works by Professor Cavarnos, an astonishingly prolific writer. These reviews were published, in most instances, in Orthodox Tradition, the journal of the Center for Traditionalist Orthodox Studies (CTOS), in Etna, California, but also in The Greek Orthodox Theological Review, The Hellenic Voice, and The Hellenic Chronicle, between 1984 and 2009.”
