Zagora, Pelion
14 - 16 July 2023

The Mount Athos Center in cooperation with the Pelion Letters and Arts Society jointly organize with the Magnesia and Sporades Regional Units a Scientific Symposium under the theme ‘Pelion - Mount Athos: A relationship enduring for centuries’ on the 14th, 15th and 16th of July 2023, in Zagora, Pelion.

The events are under the support and auspices of the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Holy Metropolis of Demetriada and Almyros.


It was a great honour for the Mount Athos Center to receive a second visit, within the space of a few months, from His Eminence the Archbishop of America Elpidophoros. During his brief stay in Thessaloniki, His Eminence included in his schedule a visit to the Nedelkos Mansion in order to donate to the Center’s archive a rare Ottoman newspaper from 1926, an item from his own personal archive whose front page features a special article on Mount Athos.      
The Mount Athos Center of Thessaloniki and the Mount Athos Foundation of America are pleased to present the event entitled ‘Mount Athos: The Ark of Orthodoxy’.  
The event will be held on Tuesday 13 September 2022 at the Maliotis Cultural Center of the Hellenic College and the Theological School of the Holy Cross in Boston.
