In the Catholica and the sacristries of the Monasteries of Mount Athos is preserved a large number of miniature works from the Byzantine and post-Byzantine era???? In the Catholica and the sacristries of the Monasteries of Mount Athos is preserved a large number of miniature works from the Byzantine and post-Byzantine era, handcrafted with the use of luxurious (such as gold, silver, ivory, steatite, etc.) or less luxurious (such as bone, wood, etc.) materials.

This extensive group of artefacts includes book covers, sacred shrines, cups, trays, belt buckles, crosses, abbot rods etc.

Such artefacts, often gifts from individuals with different status and origin (such as Byzantine Emperors, officials, Patriarchs, Metropolitans, Abbots, monks and laymen) offered to the Monasteries of Mount Athos or their dependencies, echo the dominant trends that prevailed in the artistic centers of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empire, as well as in Russia, Georgia, Wallachia, Moldova, the Central and Western Europe etc.
