  • The Kessariani Monastery
    renowned and most probably owned documents from antiquity s libraries According to the demogerontes the council of elders of the time the manuscripts were sold to the English as membranes whereas the rest of the documents were used in the metropolis kitchens During the Turkish siege of Athens the manuscripts were transported to the Akropolis and were used to ignite fuses The fertile surrounding lands belonged to the monastery as did various other holdings such as St John the Baptist next to the Kaisariani road or those in Anavyssos The monk s income was substantiated by the exploitation of the olive groves the vines and beehives In a letter dated 1209 Michael Hionati reports that the produce from the beehives was given to the Abbot of Kaisariani Monastery However four years later he complains about not having received any income from the monastery the Abbot gave as an excuse that the beehives had been destroyed The monks were also renowned for concocting medicine from various herbs THE MONUMENTS A high wall surrounds the buildings the catholicon the refectory the bathhouse and the cells so that even today they seem quite well protected In its original design there were two entrances the main entrance on the Eastern side and a larger one on the other side The monastery was built on the ruins of a lay building The drawing of Kaisariani Monastery done in 1745 by a Russian pilgrim named Barski depicts the following buildings the catholicon on the Eastern side of the wall around the abbey the bathhouse on the South side and bordering it the monks cells with the Benizelou tower and the refectory in the Western wing Beside the vegetable garden on the Southwestern side of the monastery you can see the monks cemetery and a newer church The catholicon and the bathhouse are the original XIth century buildings whereas the narthex and the bell tower as well as St Anthony s chapel are additions dated after the Turkish occupation The buildings are all disposed around a courtyard The catholicon was on the Eastern side the refectory and the kitchen on the Western side and the bathhouse which was transformed into the monastery s olive oil extractor during the Turkish rule and finally the monks cells in front of which there was an open arcade The catholicon is dedicated to the Presentation of the Virgin to the Temple and has the basic cross shape faithful to Greek tradition according to M Sotiriou or the semicircular quadripartite according to Anastassios Orlandos The entrance of the temple was located on its western side without being separated by a narthex There was another entrance on the Northern side with a marble doorstep and a Roman architrave The narthex which was surely built before 1602 is a vaulted ceiling with a cupola and lunette in the middle THE FRESCOES The oldest fresco is located on the external Southern wall of the catholicon that now includes St Anthony s chapel It is of
