Summary/Abstract: From the rich Romanian archive within the Dochiariou Monastery on Mount Athos, we have chosen to publish 65 documents from the period 1679–1688, of which 46 using the original, 18 using abstracts of the original and the copies of manuscript no. 314 of the National Archives of Bucharest (register of “Slobozia lui Enache” Monastery), and one using the copy of the same manuscript. These documents concern the relations between Walachia and the Dochiariou Monastery on Mount Athos, as well as the wealth gathered by the “Slobozia lui Enache” and the “Apostolache” monasteries, both submitted to the Athonite monastery. The documents published now contain interesting information, which complete the histories of the three Romanian monasteries (two within the country and one on Mount Athos) and even the history of Walachia. Furthermore, they increase the number of documents published belonging to the reign of Şerban Cantacuzino.
