pustiire i moarte, dar avnd ajutorul necontenit al Maicii lui Dumnezeu.

defensiv, cu o biserica mic nconjurat cu ziduri groase din piatr de
carier, sub forma unei fortree, construcie necesar acelor vremuri, cnd

monasteries estate secularizing law was issued and the monks had to leave
the monastery.
