Athos, was recently published in Korean Braille by the Korean Orthodox Editions publishing house of the Korean Orthodox Metropolis of the Patriarchate of Constantinople.
The new publication also has the honor of being selected by the National Library of Korea as one of the best books to be translated into Braille and recorded for people with disabilities, reports the Metropolis’ press service.
The National Library is also looking to publish the book in electronic form.
The Korean Orthodox Editions publishing house received the same honor in 2015 for the publication of The Mystery of Death by Nikolaos Vassiliadis and later for Wounded by Love: The Life and Wisdom of St. Porphyrios.
The Book of Genesis was also published in Georgian Braille earlier this month.
Construction on a Slavic-Korean spiritual-educational center in southwest Moscow began in the summer of 2017.
