Acta Graeca Simonopetrae (15161821). The Surviving Post-Byzantine Documents of the Athonite Monastery of Simonopetra and its Archival Codices A and B
Language: English

   The book offers the reader a full edition of Simonopetra’s post-Byzantine Greek archives which consist of 75 documents of the period 15161821, 70 loan agreements of the period 18161821, and 5 taxpayer receipts dated to 18191821. However, the most intriguing documents of Simonopetra published in the book are preserved in the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem, in Codex no. 370 of the Manuscript Collection of Panagios Taphos. The author is also publishing two Slavic Wallachian charters concerning the Simonopetritan dependency in Bucharest, the first of them being the chrysobull which the Wallachian ruler Michael the Brave (Viteazul) promulgated in August 1599, when he donated to Simonopetra the recently founded Bucharestan monastery of St. Nicholas, later known as Michael Voda. Last but not least, the monograph provides to the reader the texts of Archival Codices A and B of Simonopetra.
