Chapter 14 (Page no: 183)

The pilgrim's two economies: Greek convent pilgrimage and economic crisis.

This chapter focuses on pilgrimage to Greek convents (particularly the Convent of the Dormition of the Virgin) in the current period of economic crisis. It discusses the ways in which convents have helped society in different social and economic situations and concentrates on the current crisis, which has forced the monasteries and convents to provide more material and economic help to more people than ever before. The chapter also introduces the pilgrimage as a way to obtain salvation and as a way to become a reflection of God. This process of union, theósis, is one of the most crucial concepts of Orthodox theology and is presented as the ultimate purpose of pilgrimage. Finally, the chapter focuses on how convent pilgrimage and public image are affected by the current economic situation.
