Dragomirna, a Place of Remembrance
Hit by armies, robbed by foreign and domestic thieves, threatened by foreign and indigenous persecutors, Dragomirna – with all that she stands for – remains a place of remembrance. It expresses and brilliantly proclaims the victory of the soul and spirit, of love for beauty and harmony, of the sacrificial thought through which all of the world unites and ascends.
The Dragomirna School
This school is talked about because for two decades, at the initiative of Metropolitan Anastasie Crimca, books were written specifically for this monastery, which led to the conclusion that the books were written here at Dragomirna. (…) The scriptorium initiated and coordinated by Anastasie Crimca produced manuscripts that contain not only texts required for religious services, but also writings for reading and legal texts.
During the Austrian occupation
During the 143 years when the district of Bukovina (later Great Ducat) was part of the Empire, Dragomirna continued to be a landmark for the Romanians of the region, as well as for those from beyond the new border who came here "for spiritual leadership”, as Isaia Baloșescu wrote in 1793.
