During the course of its first fifteen-year existence (2001-2015), the Mount Athos Center has played host to ten scientific conferences, covering a broad range of subjects related to the more than one-thousand-year-old history and spirituality of Athonite monasticism. Additionally, more specialised areas have also been covered, including architecture, travellers’ accounts, Athonite scholarship, Dependencies of Athos (Metochia), and so on. More than 300 scientific papers have been presented by Greek and foreign speakers at these conferences, providing valuable new insights into the history and life of the Monastic State.
