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.
