Drawing on extensive research, as well as fascinating stories and "insider" anecdotes, the Atlas offers to readers:

  • An introduction into traditions of Eastern Christian monasticism and a history of Orthodox monasteries in America,
  • A comprehensive directory of American Orthodox Christian monasteries,
  • An enticing travel guide for those seeking to visit American monasteries and to "sample" monastic life.
  • In addition, twenty-three selected monasteries share their "personal stories" and offer a glimpse in the surprising spiritual appeal of monastic life in 21st century America. 

Edited by Alexei Krindatch. Album size 8" by 11." 150 pages of text are accompanied by 4 maps and more than one hundred photographs depicting everyday lives of US Orthodox monasteries.

"This is a fascinating and comprehensive guide to a small but important sector of American religious life. Whether you want to know about the history and theology of Orthodox monasticism or you just want to know what to expect if you visit, the stories, maps, and directories here are invaluable."

—Nancy T. Ammerman, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Boston University
