The book “Saint Silouan the Athonite” in the Braille

Once again, a pleasant surprise awaited thοse in charge of the Publishing House Korean Orthodox Editions, of the Korean Orthodox Metropolis.

The famous work of St. Sophronius Zakharov of Essex, on the life and writings of St. Silouan the Athonite, , which was recently published in Korean, was selected by the National Library of Korea as one of the best books to be translated into the language of the blind ( Braille) and in recorded form for people with disabilities. Officials at the National Library of Korea have asked the Korean Orthodox Diocese for the book in electronic form and the copyright in order to proceed with this special edition.

In 2015 we received the same request for the book of our publications “The Mystery of Death” by the late Nikolaos Vassiliadis and later for the book “Wounded by Love: The Life and the Wisdom of Saint Porphyrios “, published by the Holy Monastery of Zoodochos Pegi, Chrysopegi – Chania- Crete.

We praise God because through the publishing of the Orthodox Metropolis of Korea, the Orthodox Word is becoming increasingly known to the Korean society.
