Dear friends - I am intensely proud to preview this page of my contribution to the wonderful website of the Fathers of the Mesa Potamos Monastery in Cyprus. As many of you know, they have produced an exquisite and scholarly new book about the Romanov family, currently available in Greek, that will be published in English early next year. Having offered advice and shared information with the fathers during the course of their work on the book, they asked me to contribute an audio piece about the Romanov family's religious faith. This video is my parting tribute to the Romanovs, with whom I have travelled as a writer and historian for the last 11 years. I am honoured to have been asked to contribute to this beautiful website, which has been constructed with such love and devotion by the fathers of Mesa Potamos Monastery. I am not a monarchist, or a royalist and am religiously agnostic, but for me it is the private family life of the Romanovs that defines them as human beings. I admire their religious devotion and I hope you will all share in, what for me, is a farewell to them and a final moment of remembrance.
