"Noi manuscrise – posibile autografe – aparţinând monahului Gavriil Uric de la Neamţ"

New Manuscripts Written by the monk Gabriil Uric from the Neamt Monastery

Autor(i): Arhim. Policarp CHIŢULESCU

In the collections of the Holy Synod Library in Bucharest, there have recently been discovered two manuscripts from the XVth century, written by the hand of the great Romanian artist the monk Gavriil Uric from the Neamţ monastery. The two manuscripts contain literary pieces by very well known byzantine authors: the saints John of Damascus, Gregory the Theologian, Theodor the Studite and others. The manuscripts are copied with cursive characters in the medio-Bulgarian language, conceived by the Slavonic School at the Studion monastery in Constantinople, which had strong ties with the Romanian Countries. The two manuscripts enrich the repertoir of works copied by Gavriil Uric, enlarging the list of the 20 manuscripts known so far, copied by Gavriil Uric: 12 are in Romania, 7 in Russia, 1 in Ukraine, 1 in Moldova, 1 in England. The content of the two volumes that were recently discovered shows the fact that Romanian monks knew the works of more recent byzantine authors, like for example the patriarch of Constantinople Gregory of Cyprus.
