7 April 2021 No Comment

First certified in documents in 1210, it is acknowledged as one of the oldest and most significant monastic settlements in Moldavia, and was build between the 14th and 17th centuries, under the auspices of benefactors such as Petru I Muşat, Alexander the Blessed and Stephen the Great. The monastic settlement includes the church, dating back from the 14th century, an invaluable religious art museum and a museum of print, and the oldest monastic library, counting over 12,000 volumes in 1862, testimonies about significant historical, theological, cultural and artistic facts. The scholarly and spiritual traditions of this monastery are connected to the brilliant activity of a renowned school for calligraphers and miniaturists, trained under the guidance of Gavriil Uric and a printing press organized soon after the 1500, which enhanced the fame of orthodoxy.
