Terekhtemyriv monastery

Nicholas Zharkikh

History of Terekhtemyriv monastery difficult to separate from the history of the town, because the sources hardly affect the internal organization and life of the monastery. Therefore, in this section I provide just a chronological outline, and more speculation about the specific events to be found in the "History".

In the history of the monastery from 1552 to 1789, we have only three names of abbots. The period of most active functioning monastery accounts for 1615 – 1678 years. There were no large capital buildings; any relics or documents on it does not remain.

It is an abstract of the chapter. For the full text see please ukrainian version.
