Title: Gerapetros - book
Author: Stavros Nik. Xristodoulakis
Publisher: Batsioulas publications
This book is an approach to the folklore history of Ierapetra both through a general framework and through a chosen series of unpublished text that were given to the author by a close to him person.
The tradition of Ierapetra is approached diachronic, with an evolutional way and catholically through original texts presenting the way of life and the philosophy of the people of Ierapetra. The conjunction of the old way of life and the new one is accomplished through the traditional songs (mantinades) and through several spells, which are kept until our days and are an inextricable part of today's life in Ierapetra.
Through this book, the reader meets Ierapetra's tradition, myths, beliefs, spells, marriage and funeral customs, dirges, songs and several humorous stories that can be found both in Crete and specifically in the Ierapetra region.
