Photographer's Note

In the 1000 years o history of the Athonian city many types of religious asceticism were formed and practiced. Nowadays the following still exist: communal asceticism, in the twenty big monasteries, skites, cells, and very few hermits. Until recently the institution of idiorrythmia was still practiced in 1992 though the last idiorythmo monastery-Pantokratoros Monastery- became communal. See in the pictures the cells of nuns from Monastery Iviron. From the exterior appearance they resemble [ftochika], frugally and simply, as is generally speaking also their life. Appear in the background the Mountain Athos and certain buildings of his internal Monastery that you saw in yesterday's my picture.
