MOLDOVA - CĂPRIANA Monastery

(0 votes)


   Established in medieval MOLDAVIA, CĂPRIANA is situated in a picturesque forested area once called CODRII LĂPUȘNEI.
   The first significant reference dates from a document issued in 1429 that gave CĂPRIANA the status of royal monastery on behalf of ALEXANDER the GOOD. In this deed the holy abode was referred to as the monastery of VÂȘNOVĂȚ where the hegumen is CHIPRIAN, and was given in the possession of ALEXANDER's wife - princess MARENA.
   After a period of decay, the monastery was rebuilt at the behest of PETRU RAREȘ, from 1542 to 1545 (i.s.).
