The Original New Testament

Radu, Prince of Wallachia, son of the Voivode Michnea, dedicates to Iviron Monastery on Mount Athos the Monastery of the Holy Trinity (Radu Voda), built by his grandfather, Prince Alexander II Mirtchea.

During the reign of Michnea, the monastery fell into disrepair, and the villages and the implements which had formerly been ceded to the monastery were scattered among other monasteries.

The new prince has repaired the monastery and is now dedicating it to Iviron Monastery as a dependency. Iviron shall send wise priests to take care of the Monastery of the Holy Trinity and invigorate it. Whatever is left over from the income shall be sent to Iviron. Witnessed by nine officials of Wallachia.
