The Original New Testament

The Superior of the Monastery of the Transfiguration of the Saviour (called Koutloumousiou), the hieromonk Dionysios, appeared before the Patriarch to submit a statement drawn up by himself and the villagers of Marmaras and Galimi on the island of Marmaras in the year 1784, and ratified by Archbishop Ananias of Proiconnesos. According to this document, the Monastery of the Virgin called Stilarion on that island, being deserted, was given to the said Dionysios, who as its second founder did repair it, on the understanding that it would henceforth be a dependency of the Koutloumousiou Monastery. The agreement with the Archbishop provided that his name should be honoured in the monastery, which should also make him an annual gift. Hegumen Dionysios also presented a letter from the said Archbishop confirming the terms and conditions for the reconstruction of the monastery, and asked the Patriarch to issue a ratification of the deed of cession of the dependency. The Patriarch and the Synod ratify the cession of this convent to the Koutloumousiou Monastery. The Monks of that foundation shall henceforth occupy it undisturbed, but must however make the customary annual gift of five florins to the Archbishop.
