Glastonbury twinned with Patmos

THE town of Glastonbury. by legend visited by Joseph of Arimathea, is to be twinned with the Isle of Patmos, sacred in both Greek mythology and as the place where St John wrote the Book of Revelation.

A monk from the monastery of Ioannis Theologou on Patmos, Fr Martinianos, recently visited Glastonbury to make arrangements for the twinning. Following this, a small group of councillors from the Somerset town visited Patmos last month.

They took three sprays of flowering Holy Thorn from Glastonbury: one for Fr Martinianos, one for the Abbot of Patmos, and one for the mayor of Patmos.
