Most widely held works by Apostolos N Athanassakis
The Homeric hymns by Homer( Book )

13 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A rich source for students of Greek mythology and literature, the Homeric Hymns are also fine poetry. Attributed by the ancients to Homer, these prooimia, or preludes, were actually composed over centuries and used by poets to prepare for the singing or recitation of longer passages of the Homeric epics. In his acclaimed translations of the Hymns, Apostolos N. Athanassakis preserves the essential simplicity of the original Greek, offering a straightforward, line-by-line translation without seeking to masquerade or modernize. For this long-awaited new edition, Athanassakis enhances his classic work with a new bibliography, a comprehensive index, careful and selective changes in the translations themselves, and numerous additions to the introduction and notes which will enrich the reader's experience of these ancient and influential poems."--Jacket
Theogony ; Works and days ; Shield by Hesiod( Book )

18 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introducing his celebrated translations of these two poems and of the Shield, a closely related poem of now-disputed authorship, Apostolos N. Athanassakis positions Hesiod simultaneously as a philosopher-poet, a bard with deep roots in the culture of his native Boeotia, and the heir to a long tradition of Hellenic poetry. For this revised edition, Athanassakis has provided an expanded introduction on Hesiod and his work, made careful corrections and amendments to his faithful translations, significantly augmented the notes and index, and updated the bibliography. Already a classic, Hesiod: Theogony, Works and Days, Shield is now more valuable than ever for students of Greek mythology and literature."--Jacket

Becoming fire : through the year with the Desert Fathers and Mothers( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sayings of the desert monks of the fifth and sixth centuries amaze, and startle, readers by their wisdom. They teach us - among other things - that the first step in overcoming our sinfulness is an honest perception of things as they are. Rather than reading through them quickly in gulps or dismissing them as fascinating, but far-distant and now irrelevant, historical texts, people today who read them as the ancients did, slowly and reflectively, will still learn from the insights they offer us across the centuries." "By arranging these 'words' in short daily readings, Tim Vivian invites modern readers to savor the monks' advice, as did those men and women who visited the monks and nuns and who collected their sayings as guides to Christian living."--BOOK JACKET
The life of Saint George of Choziba ; and, the miracles of the Most Holy Mother of God at Choziba by Antony( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by one of his most devoted disciples, Antony, The Life of Saint George of Choziba (634) provides a vivid portrayal of Palestinian or early Byzantine monasticism. Chronicling the daily life and profound spirituality of George and his disciples at Choziba, Antony's text is a classic document of early Christianity. Protector and guardian of the monastery, the Holy Mother of God was vitally important to Antony and his fellow monks

The Homeric hymns by Homer( Book )

9 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Homeric Hymns have survived for two and a half millennia because of their captivating stories, beautiful language, and religious significance. Well before the advent of writing in Greece, they were performed by traveling bards at religious events, competitions, banquets, and festivals. These thirty-four poems invoking and celebrating the gods of ancient Greece raise questions that humanity still struggles with-questions about our place among others and in the world. Known as ""Homeric"" because they were composed in the same meter, dialect, and style as Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, these hymn"

This dispersion attests to his broad influence in many areas of the ancient Church.
