Mount Athos and the Byzantine Empire, Treasures of the Holy Mountain
The new exhibition, succinctly titled “Mount Athos and the Byzantine Empire, Treasures of the Holy Mountain” at Grand Palais looks exceptional. Mont (that the Greeks know as the “Holy Mountain”) is a mysterious place that has fascinated people for the last thousand years.
This magnificent peninsula has been the shelter for orthodox monks for over a thousand years, vowed to silence and isolation, far from the bustle of the world.
Even if a few male visitors - essentially pilgrims or scientists - can request authorisation to enter the monasteries, women are not allowed.
Over the centuries, numerous historical, artistic and spiritual treasures have been amassed: charts, icons,  jewellery and illuminated manuscripts.
The exhibition is an exceptional retrospective that brings together an important number of Byzantine treasures belonging to the monks of Mount Athos, dating from the 9th- to the 18th Century.
The exhibition  “Mount Athos and the Byzantine Empire, Treasures of the Holy Mountain” is at the Petit Palais from 10th April - 5th July 2009. Open every day from 10am - 6pm except Mondays and public holidays. Late night opening Thursdays (for the temporary exhibitions) until 8pm.
