CONSTANTINE CAVARNOS AND THE HELLENIC TRADITION
Ο ΚΩΝΣΤΑΝΤΙΝΟΣ ΚΑΒΑΡΝΟΣ ΚΑΙ Η ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗ ΠΑΡΑΔΟΣΙΣ
CONSTANTINO CAVARNÓS Y LA TRADICIÓN HELÉNICA
By Sergio González

Professor Sergio González, who teaches Latin and the history of the Spanish language at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and Ancient Greek at the University of Chile in Santiago, was a friend of Constantine Cavarnos, who reposed three years ago at the Holy Monastery of St. Anthony in Arizona, and an admirer of his writings. This text, which he originally wrote in Spanish, was first published in 2012 in the periodical Byzantion-Nea Hellás. The author himself recently prepared the English version of the text, which Father Asterios Gerostergios translated into Greek.

The trilingual edition of Professor González’ beautiful tribute to Dr. Cavarnos is offered in honor and memory of a great and unforgettable struggler and teacher of Hellenism and Orthodoxy, which he served faithfully and conscientiously until his holy repose. 2014. 68 pp.

MODERN GREEK THOUGHT By Constantine Cavarnos

Three essays dealing with Greek thought from 1750 to the present. The first is an introduction to modern Greek philosophy through a discussion of its distinctive characteristics. The other essays discuss the standpoint of many eminent Greek intellectuals, philosophers, theologians, scientists, poets, novelists, and others regarding the capabilities and value of the positive sciences and the questions of the nature and destiny of man. “A bold attempt—a unique and pioneering one—to give the reader a perceptive, meaningful, and reliable overview of the modern Greek mind. The result is eminently successful and extremely useful.” 1969. 2nd printing, 1986. 115 pp.

MODERN GREEK PHILOSOPHERS ON THE HUMAN SOUL By Constantine Cavarnos

Selections from the writings of seven representative thinkers of modern Greece: Benjamin of Lesvos, P. Vrailas-Armenis, I. Skaltsounis, St. Nectarios of Aegina, N. Louvaris, Ph. Kontoglou, and I.N. Theodorakopoulos—on the human soul: its existence, freedom, powers and immortality. “The deep thought of these philosophers is expressed in such simple and beautiful language that any layman can very well benefit, as well as a scholar who is interested in contemporary Greek thought. An interesting and helpful feature of the book is that Dr. Cavarnos interjects in the footnotes statements of philosophers of the West—European and American—whose doctrines agree with those of these thinkers of modern Greece. Indeed, this book is to be received with interest and pleasure by all.” 1967. 2nd, revised and considerably enlarged edition, 1987. 140 pp., 6 illus.

THE HELLENIC HERITAGE By Constantine Cavarnos

Two lectures are presented in this volume. They deal with the same general subject, the Hellenic Heritage, viewed from the same standpoint. Their aim is to give, as far as possible in brief compass, a series of significant glimpses of the long, rich, and uninterrupted Greek cultural tradition from Antiquity to the present. They focus on the fine arts, language, literature, science, philosophy, and religion. This book may be viewed as a sequel to a shorter work of more limited scope by Dr. Cavarnos, entitled Cultural and Educational Continuity of Greece. 2000. 128 pp., 2 illus.
