Summary PDF
Following a brief reminiscence of his lasting acquaintance with Agathaggelos Xirouchakis, Bishop of Kydonia and Apokoronas, the compiler of this outline biography and bibliography makes reference to the late bishop’s funeral, and to the decision to dedicate Volume XI of the Kretika Chronika to him. In recounting the main events in his life, he points out the bishop’s work as a philologist, historian, researcher and teacher, the contribution he made to Venice, Vienna and Crete as a theologian, and his acts of patriotism during the German-Italian occupation. The compiler provides a bibliography of books, studies, speeches and articles, as well as a list of articles about the archbishop.
