Library at Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology



The Archbishop Iakovos Library & Learning Resource Center
at Hellenic College Holly Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
Brookline, Mass.

-----

Personal Note:  I have been able to borrow a very rare book written about my grandfather's village in Greece from this library utilizing my local public library's inter-library loan program.

The facility serves the school and the greater academic and religious community by supporting the curricula of the undergraduate college and the master’s level theological seminary programs and by offering research materials for scholarly work. The Library's resources are housed in the Archbishop Iakovos Library and the adjoining Cotsidas-Tonna Library.
Principal collections include acquisitions in Orthodox theology, Classics, Byzantine history, and Modern Greek studies. The Library houses over 60,000 monographic volumes, over 400 active serial titles, and a large number of audio-visual materials. In addition, the holdings of the Library include a rare book collection in Orthodox, Greek, and general religious studies, as well as an archive of materials related to the history of the school and of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The top floor of the library contains the permanent exhibition of the Archbishop Iakovos Collection.
