    But if he didn’t accept this “gift”, the book would have been burnt at he end of the 19th century when Pavlou burnt to the ground…….

    Close reading indeed, but if I was a monk in Paulou I rather had it burned in the fire then far away in an english museum knowing then it was purchased in a wrong way. And…This was not the only manuscript Curzon got. In almost every monastery he “bought” these valuable mansuscript cheap.
