Summary

A bold allegory of a contemporary nativity. The mountainous Cypriot village of Spilia, the Greek word for “cave”, provides the setting for the conception and “birth” of a bodiless, unseen Christ spreading as miraculous energy to liberate, heal and transform anyone it touches.
 
Census is both a heretic allegory of the nativity and a cathartic retort to the satanic messages of Roman Polanski’s renowned horror film Rosemary’s Baby. Boasting repeated editions in Greece and Cyprus, this award-winning novel by Panos Ioannides, replete with magical realism, is riveting in terms of conception and execution: a sacred metaphysical thriller that redeems and purifies the reader. A masterpiece in the art of fiction and the recipient of the Cyprus National Prize for Literature, 1973.
