Holy Mothers of Orthodoxy

by

Eva Catafygiotu Topping




Dedications by the Author



In memory of my mother (1900-1982)
who believed always in the equal dignity
and the rights of women,
and of my brother (1922-1987)
who shared her ideals


Also, especially for Vasiliki, my precious granddaughter
and namesake.
