13.17 Chrysobull of John VI Cantacuzenos
14 July 1351
Iviron Monastery, Archives
Parchment, 136.2 x 26.7 cm


The Original New Testament

The Emperor confirms the Monastery in its possession of 27 estates, with their labourers, in Macedonia, and grants it another property as well as certain tax exemptions.

This is a typical example of a chrysobull enumerating the vast landed wealth of a large Athonite foundation.
