Read full description of the books Evangelistria: The Holy Monastery of the Annunciation in Skiathos; A short history:

The Holy Monastery of the Annunciation in Skiathos, Greece, is much more than a monastery.

It was where the supreme commander of the Greek War of Independence, together with his top commanders and admirals, strategized their main battle plan.

It was in the Church that those important national heroes swore the Oath of Freedom or Death; and it was in the monastery where the first modern Greek flag was woven and blessed in the church.

By the twentieth century the monastery had fallen into such disrepair it had become a ruin.

This book chronicles the personal history of those monks and lay people who shouldered the burden of maintaining and finally restoring the Lady’s house, this national treasure, to its original splendor.
