The Mount Athos Center focuses its interest in publications, either in the form of table calendars, yearbooks, catalogues of its exhibitions, original research or special studies along with the republication of rare books.
Those publications with themes pertaining to Mount Athos are one of the most important activities of the Mount Athos Center, not only due to numbers, but primarily in terms of quality.
The Center’s publications focuse on exhibition catalogues, conference proceedings, reproductions and editions of rare and out of print books, conclusions of original research, photographic albums and table calendars.
