This book had been lost for a long time. Nikos Kazantzakis himself was convinced that his one and only manuscript had been permanently lost. Eventually, it was found by a relative of his, so that we can enjoy the opportunity to read one of the greatest philosophical masterpieces of world literature. 

It was written as a continuation of Plato's Symposium, the subject of which was Eros; in the Kazantzakian Symposium, the main subject is the Divine.

“During the days of our grandparents, when God would descend to Earth, one day He said to man: "The seven floors of heaven and the seven floors of Earth cannot contain me, but the heart of man can hold me whole. And take heed, lest thou wound the heart of the meekest man, for I may be in there."
