From the Holy Mountain: A Journey in the Shadow of Byzantium Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of today's most highly acclaimed young travel writers retraces the steps of two monks who undertook an epic journey, across the entire Byzantine world, in the year 587 AD. An elegy to the slowly dying doctrine of Eastern Christianity and the people who have kept it alive, which is a rich and darkly humorous blend of history, spirituality, adventure and politics. 24 b/w plates, 8 colour illus.

Synopsis:

In the spring of 587 AD, two monks set off on a journey that would take them in an arc across the entire Byzantine world, from the shores of the Bosphorus to the sand dunes of Egypt. More than a thousand years later, using their writings as a guide, William Dalrymple set off to retrace their steps.
