About the Holy Monastery of Gregoriou in Mount Athos, Greece: Also known as Gregoriou Monastery, the Monastery is built high on a rock and by the sea, on the southeastern side of the Mount Athos peninsula. It was founded in the 14th century by Saint Gregory the Hesychast who dedicated the main church to Saint Nicholas. The second protector of the Monastery is Saint Gregory and the third protector is Saint Anastasia of Rome, known for performing myriad of miracles and whose relics are kept in the Monastery. In its history, Gregoriou Monastery burned down twice (once in the 15th century and then in the 18th century). Both times, it was successfully reconstructed without losing its treasures which now consist of, among other items, 4,000 printed books, 279 manuscripts, and parchments from the unique manuscript of Hermas belonging to the apocryphal books of the Gospel.
