The Original New Testament

The monks of St Paul's have settled a boundary dispute with the Xenophontos Monastery, and have restored to the latter the hilly place in Chalkidiki belonging to it. The boundary line was traced with accuracy and precision in the presence of: from the Xenophontos Monastery, the hegumen, hieromonk Moses, hieromonk Gabriel, the elders Paisios, Chariton, Gelasios and Dionysios, and the monks Ioannikios, Lavrentios and Dionysios; from St Paul's Monastery, the hegumen, hieromonk Matthew, hieromonk Gennadios, elders Kassianos, Gennadios, Savvatios and Theodosios, and monks Gregorios, Damaskinos and Antonios; from the village of Neochori, Stylianos Karatzas, Georgios Charvatos, Paraskevas Kyriakou, Manuel Stamoulis the Cantankerous, and Vlaikos and Demos Daris; from the village of Krini, Manuel Damianos and Constas Logaras. At the request of the interested parties, the Metropolitan of Thessaloniki legalised the disposition and confirmed the Xenophontos Monastery in its possession of the property.
