The Annual Reports
of the Friends of Mount Athos

The Friends of Mount Athos began publishing its now internationally acclaimed Annual Report in 1991. Each issue includes the following regular features:

  • The Society's Year
  • Report from the Mountain
  • Full-text publication and (for recent years) videos of presentations delivered at the FoMA Annual Meeting
  • Book Reviews (books pertaining to Mount Athos, relevant publications of members of FoMA, and books of interest to members of FoMA)
  • In addition, reports on current projects like the Footpaths Project, reports on FoMA-sponsored pilgrimages from the year, and occasional special features and articles, supplement the regular contents of the Annual Reports.

    FoMA Annual Reports

    The Annual Report is the earliest continuous publication of the Friends of Mount Athos. It was intended from its inception to be a publication for the membership of the Friends of Mount Athos, as reflected in its regular report on "The Society's Year," and is circulated annually to members, to the monasteries of Mount Athos, and to many of its sketes and cells. Its unique focus on Mount Athos, however, and features like its annual "Report from the Mountain" and other articles related to the Holy Mountain brought attention to this publication far beyond the membership of FoMA itself, with the result that FoMA began receiving membership subscriptions from the libraries of research institutions, University graduate programs and theological schools.

    Digitized FoMA Annual Reports

    As a result, FoMA now makes available to the general public the complete run of the AR in digitized form, thanks to a cooperative arrangement with The Graduate Theological Union's Flora Lamson Hewlett Library, Berkeley, California. The Friends of Mount Athos is pleased that the Hewlett Library produced digital copies of the entire run of the AR from its inception in 1991 and is continuing to digitize current issues. Digital copies of past issues may be accessed at no charge as soon as they are 5 years old, either from this page or from the Graduate Theological Union's digital archive.

    "The Society's Year" has been made available to the general public for all years since 2006, including the most recent five years.

    The list below provides a separate copy of the tables of contents to facilitate searching of the Annual Reports. Please note that the first three issues, 1991 - 1993, did not include tables of contents.
