Starting with the asylums, shadows and monasteries of the Holy Mountain, the series “Modern Elders” travels to Istanbul, to the desert of Arizona and to major cities in the United States and Canada. The five episodes present their life, work, teaching and spiritual storehouse. Sacred forms, vessels of grace who lived beside us, devoted themselves to our salvation, healed our souls and often our bodies. In the series, people who have lived through them speak and continue their legacy. Among them is the Commonwealth Patriarch Bartholomew, Archbishop of America, etc.
