04-aparitie-editoriala-biserici-vechi-de-lemn-tinutul-neamtIn Romania there are several important books on the matter of wood churches and most of these books are about Transilvania and Maramures regions. “Old wood churches from Neamt County” is a book that many expected it for this part of Romania. The two researchers that wrote the book speak about 29 churches built on a period of about three centuries. The oldest from the XVI century is the church from Valeni, Piatra Neamt and the church from Hartesti, Margineni that dates from 1683.

The religious tradition in Neamt County was clearly influenced by the presence of Ceahlau Mountain where many monks built small religious settlements. The book presents construction details and religious elements, wood details that are characteristic for this region of Romania.

The religious painting is also important and the book presents details of paintings on the wood walls of the churches. The artisans that worked on these architectural wonders are identified by name and this is an element that gives authenticity to the text of the book.
