The Tempting of Father Anthony
George Horton
$30.00

Excerpt: “Besides, Anastasi was seventeen, and he was reading for the hundredth time a story that had produced as strong an impression on his mind as fairy tale ever made upon the mind of boy. He lay flat upon his stomach, elbows on the ground, face resting between his two hands. Before him was a large, flat book written in Greek, and entitled ‘Lives of the Saints’. It was opened at the Life of St. Anthony the Great, and Anastasi was in the middle of an exciting adventure between that wonderful man and a whole army of demons.”
The author (1860-1942) was the US Consul in Greece, and an affectionate observer of Greek life. Although this novel is the typically sentimental tale of its time it does reflect something of the life he observed there c. 1900.
