Presentation of the book “Gregorios Konstantas, a scholar talks with the Enlightenment and Tradition” by father Themistoklis Mourtzanos in Corfu
On Wednesday afternoon, February 14, 2018 the book “Gregorios Konstantas, a scholar talks with the Enlightenment and Tradition” by Protopresbyter Father Themistoklis Mourtzanos, General Prelatic Warden of the Holy Metropolis was presented in the Spiritual Centre.
In his greeting, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios first congratulated from the bottom of his heart his spiritual child, father Themistoklis for his excellent work (Doctoral Thesis) and then pointed out that these illuminated examples, like Gregorios Konstantas, invite us to awaken from our spiritual lethargy.
Our ancestors sacrificed everything even their lives for us to be free today.
They defended with every part of their body the Orthodox faith, Tradition and the special characteristics of the Greek nation. On the contrary, today, we notice, with deep sadness, that the ones in power fight to uproot the faith in Christ, to hide our history and lately to separate it as it seems.
The professor of Byzantine Music, Mr. Georgios Ladovrechis opened the event and presented with his friends Music of the 18th and 19th century with the accompaniment of traditional music instruments.
