With the blessing and in the presence of His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, in the afternoon of 16th October 2017, in the full central function hall of the Patriarchal Mansion, the presentation of the album, titled:
“PATRIARCHATE OF ALEXANDRIA: Ten years (2006-2016) since the inauguration of the Patriarchal Mansion”
took place with great success.
The elegant, luxurious 230-page Album was published with the sponsorship of the National Bank of Greece in order to capture and imprint the great work of the radical renovation and reconstruction of the monumental building complex of the Patriarchal Mansion, as well as the promotion of the historical treasures preserved within its Archaeological Museum, the Sacristy and the famous Patriarchal Library.
The album has prologues by His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, the President of the National Bank of Greece Mrs. Louka Katseli and the Architect Dr Mohamed Awad. The publication, the artistic design and the photographs were edited by Mrs. Maria Stefosi, with her collaborators.
The main speaker was the Alexandrian Professor Dr Spyridon Th. Kamalakis, Great Archon Logothetes of the Patriarchate of Alexandria, who presented the new album.
He was followed by His Eminence Narcissos Metropolitan of Accra, Patriarchal Vicar of Alexandria, who presented it in Arabic.
