Description

The Unknown Pilgrim: The Soul’s Journey to God and to the Holy Mountain of Athos.

The Unknown Pilgrim: The Soul’s Journey to God and to the Holy Mountain of Athos. Manton, CA: Divine Ascent Press, 2006. For once, this is a book you can judge by its covers: on the front, a detailed illustration of a hermit’s imaginary island (complete with Heath Robinson boat-hoist); on the back, a portrait of the author, eager to reach out of academia to communicate with a wider audience. Hitherto, we have only known René Gothóni as a lucid social scientist, Professor of Comparative Religion at Helsinki University, president of the Finnish Society of Friends of Mount Athos, and a faithful visitor and speaker at our gatherings.

Rene Gothoni is a teacher of Comparative Religion at the University of Helsinki who has embraced Orthodox Christianity. It shows pilgrimage to be the manifestation of an inner progression understood as an allegory of the souls journey to God. ISBN: 9780971413931 Binding: Softback 166 pages.

René Gothóni has written many academic works and articles about the world of Mount Athos, but also a work of fiction The Unknown Pilgrim. The Soul’s Journey to God ( orig. Tuntematon pyhiinvaeltaja). Professor Gothóni has worked with two widely divergent cultures, the comparison of which has given him a level of expertise in the philosophical basis for hermeneutical scholarship and epistemology more generally, theoretical issues which he discusses in his book Words Matter. Hermeneutics in the Study of Religions

The Pilgrims or Pilgrim Fathers were the English settlers who established the Plymouth Colony in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Their leadership came from the religious congregations of Brownists, or Separatist Puritans, who had fled religious persecution. Their leadership came from the religious congregations of Brownists, or Separatist Puritans, who had fled religious persecution in England for the tolerance of 17th-century Holland in the Netherlands. They held Puritan Calvinist religious beliefs but, unlike most other Puritans, they maintained that their congregations should separate from the English state church.

Rene Gothoni is Professor in Comparative Religion at the University of Helsinki in Finland. He is also a Life Member of Clare Hall, Cambridge, UK, a Life Member of the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters, and the president of the Finnish Society of the Friends of Mount Athos. He is the author of several scholarly books and articles. However, in this book he lays aside his scholar's hat, and writes an intensely personal diary of a week spent with a hermit monk, a wise spiritual father, on the Holy Mountain Athos, the ancient center of Orthodox Christian monasticism in Greece. This is not a travelogue of "my summer vacation" (though the reader will gain some acquaintance with this unique and amazing place, a place the author has visited many times over many years. Primarily, it is about an inward spiritual journey, into the mystical life of Christ as understood and experienced by Orthodox Christians. A pilgrimage is a manifestation of an inner journey, often referred to as an allegory of the soul's journey to God. On this journey the pilgrim perceives the gap between what he should be and what he really is. As a scholar of religion, the author knew about pilgrimages "by the book" but yearned for something more. This book tells the story of his jouney as an unknown pilgrim to an unknown place, a pilgrimage that changed his life. Originally published in Finnish in 2000, now translated into English by the author. A handsome volume with highly-readable print.
