599 – Books: Mönchsland Athos 1942




A quote from an article I found concerning this German expedition during the second World war:
Furthermore, a German expedition of 1942 enabled F. Dölger and his associates to record on film the great collection of monastic charters, property deeds and chrysobuls which completed a task initiated as early as 1857 when Russian scholar, P. I. Sevastianov, did the first photographing of manuscripts at Athos.Afbeelding_12
Another picture of Hitler on Athos in Panteleimonos.

Dölger also got the rare opportunity to study the “Tragos” in the library in Karyes !
