Invitation to a book launch for a biography of Elder Nikanor of Hilandar

Elder Nikanor was at Hilandar Monastery when the Very Rev. Dr. Mateja Matejic, Walt Craig, and later Predrag Matejic were filming the manuscripts in Hilandar Monastery’s library. There are photos of Father Nikanor among the Hilandar Research Library’s slide collection, some of which were incorporated into the video interview of Predrag Matejic’s visits to Mount Athos that formed a part of the Thompson Library exhibit (Summer 2013) at The Ohio State University: “Travelers to and from Mount Athos: The Translation of Culture, Knowledge, and Spirituality.” The Very Rev. Miroljub Ružić also mentions Father Nikanor in the interview he gave for the same exhibit.
