0064 - Photos of the water mill where Saint Silouanos The Athonite worked.

A small distance from the Holy Monastery of St. Panteleimon (Russian) the old water mill of the Russian Monastery is found.

This water mill was the place where Saint Silouanos the Athonite, practiced strict asceticism.

It is noteworthy to mention what Gerasimos Smirnakis (Historian) writes regarding the enormous production of flour this water mill produced "The water mill produced enough flour to create bread and feed 120,000 people a month" A very large sum, even by todays standards.

The Russian website http://www.isihazm.ru published photos of the water mill, which we have re-posted in this space.
