Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

The Restoration of a 14th Century Psalter

In 1997 the fathers of the Monastery of Vatopaidi found on the roof of the Chapel of Saint Dimitrios, which is located on the northeast side of the Katholikon, a manuscript of the 14th century Psalter in very poor condition. The restoration of the manuscript was completed in 2004 by the 10th Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities.

You can see in the photographs that follow the restoration phases of this precious manuscript.
