 Summary

From the Church of Panagia Chrysaliniotissa, the oldest Byzantine church of Lefkosia, to the imposing multi-domed Church of Agios Lazaros in Larnaka and that of Panagia Angeloktisti ('built by angels') in Kiti village; from the Church of Agioi Varnavas and Uarionas in the village of Peristerona, superb example of Cypriot Byzantine architecture, to the Orthodox Monastery of Chrysorrogiatissa ('of the golden pomegranates'), and the Monastery of Agios Neofytos in Pafos; from the Monasteries of Stavrovouni, Trooditissa, Machairas and Kykkos (dedicated to the Theotokos ('Mother of God') with her icon painted by the hand of Saint Loukas) to the ten churches -monuments belonging to the World Heritage list of UNESCO perched on the Troodos mountain range- this guide offers through religious routes and devotional visits along the pious footpaths of faith, a comprehensive overview of the religious life of the island of Cyprus - the 'Holy Isle'.

Journeys of a religious nature to those places where the Saints of Cyprus lived: Apostles Pavlos and Varnavas, Saint Lazaros, Saint Neofytos - through the bosom of the Autocephalous Church of New Justinia and all Cyprus, in its very making. Living through the religious tradition of the island as it is presented through the abundance of early Christian basilicas that have been discovered to date, with three, five and seven cupolas, their vivid mosaic pavements and inlaid marble, with their reliefs dressed with marble, carved marble decoration and their mosaic wall scenes - all demonstrate just how deeply rooted is Christianity on the holy island of religious monuments.

The book contains many colourful illustrations.
