Annals of Putna


“Annals of Putna” is the only scientific journal which focuses on the epoch of Stephen the Great and the history of Putna Monastery.
It was created to stimulate and focus the historians’ efforts on these two main topics of research. Its scientific span was subsequently enlarged to include the history of other monasteries from Bukovina.

Since 2004, the “Holy Stephen the Great 500” commemorative year, Putna Monastery has co-organized several scientific international seminars on our holy ancestor, his epoch and heritage, and the history of the first monastery that he founded.
