1482 – Shops in Karyes

shop 1There are nowadays more then four shops in Kayes. Due to the fact that many monasteries had fallen into debt in the 18th century Patriarch Gabriel 4 published an new law  (Typikon) in 1783 reorganizing the central administration. Because the number of shops in Karyes had become unacceptable, giving the place a wordly and commercial air, their number was to be restricted to four. (Speake, page 144)shop 2Shops in mainstreet.
