“This work had its origin in a lecture which I delivered at the Maliotis Cultural Center of Hellenic College/Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts in 1978. [...]The lecture appears in the present volume in its original form, except for occasional editorial improvements, and with the addition of several icons of St. John Damascene, a photograph of the Monastery of St. Savvas in Jerusalem, where Damascene dwelt as a monk and wrote his works, a selection of hymns from the Service to St. John, a Bibliography, an Index of Proper Names, and an Index of Subjects. This book is addressed to all persons interested in religion, particularly in Orthodox Christianity.”
