Simonopetra Monastery

This is not Athos-Simonopetra

This is not a kegragarion by any measure. It is rather a slow Kalamatiano dance or a Zante "kantada". Excellent techniqe acrobatics by the chorus.


It is with great difficulty that Abbot Aimilianos of Simonopetra might qualify as Athonite. An odd personality, histrionic, with convoluted cerebral speech, with no Athonite apprenticeship, he lived a considerable part of his life outside Athos and chode to die away from Athos.
