In Africa

Anastasios bookHoly Cross Press are pleased to announce the publication of the most recent book from His Beatitude Archbishop Anastasios of Albania.  In Africa: Orthodox Christian Witness and Service draws on his deep and long service to the African continent.

The book traces Archbishop Anastasios’ service in Africa, as well as some of his studies about African religiosity that show with what respect and knowledge he has tried to approach the African soul, offering her the treasure of Orthodox truth, crucified love, and resurrected hope of Christ.

Archibishop Anastasios (Yannoulatos), Professor Emeritus of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Honorary member of the Academy of Athens, traversed the savannas and the jungles of Africa with the apostolic fire that has characterized his whole life, combining the gifts of a renowned theologian and scholar of the science of religions, a creative leader, and above all a man of love and self-sacrifice; his passage “bore much fruit” that continues to multiply even after his physical absence from the “beloved” Africans.
