     The constant and intense spiritual and cultural interconnections between the Athos monasteries and the Christians from the Bulgarian lands during 18th19th centuries lead to the appearance of a thematic layer in Orthodox art that includes "Holy Mount" subjects. The book examines replicas of miraculous icons and images of saints from Mount Athos in monuments from today's Bulgaria. The pilgrimage tradition played a key role in the appearance of these works — some of them were brought by pilgrims, others were made by local craftsmen who often used models made in Mount Athos.
