DB: Leimonos Monastery – Digital Library
Highlighting the written cultural legacy of Leimonos Library during five centuries
The library was established as part of the program “Elevation and promotion of the cultural wealth of Leimonos Monastery, Lesvos with the use of new technologies”.
It is divided into three parts: the collection of Byzantine and post-Byzantine manuscripts, the Library of prototype books and the Archive of Greek and Ottoman documents.
The website presents more than 108 manuscripts; summary descriptions are also included.
The future goal of the project is the constant renewal of the Digital Library not only by enriching descriptions, but also by publishing the monastery’s written wealth as a whole.
