New Book: Metropolitan Petros of Astoria
It is with great pleasure that I announce the availability of my book, "Metropolitan Petros of Astoria: A Microcosm of the Old Calendar Movement in America." This work examines the ecclesiastical life of Metropolitan Petros (Astyfides), the founder of St. Markella's Cathedral in Astoria, New York.
By Anastasios Hudson
This work examines the career of Metropolitan Petros (Astyfides) of Astoria (1915-1997), the founder of St. Markella’s Cathedral and first bishop of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of America (also known as the Greek Old Calendarist Church). Metropolitan Petros’s life spans the entire history of the Old Calendar movement and many of its major challenges, crises, and turning-points are reflected in his life. Therefore, he represents a microcosm of the movement, and study of his life sheds light on the Old Calendar movement in general.
