The Diptychs of Putna Monastery and Its Sketes

„The Diptychs of Putna Monastery and Its Sketes” by Monk Alexie Cojocaru

The volume presents 14 diptychs from Putna Monastery and its sketes, written in the 18th and 19th centuries and kept in the monastery archive. 

The diptychs present the lavra of Putna and its subordinated monastic communities, who have been all “one home”, as Metropolitan Jacob of Putna wrote in a letter dated December 26, 1757, to Archimandrite Vartolomei Mazereanu, hegumen of Putna.
