Summary/Abstract: The main purpose of the present article, is to provide scholars working on Byzantine hagiography with a diplomatic edition of the only bilingual, Greek and Slavic, text of the Miracles the Archangels Michael and Gabriel performed in the Athonite Monastery of Docheiariou, as it is recorded in codex Docheiariou 95. These Miracles must have attracted the attention of the scholars as early as 1708, since they are mentioned in the Description of Mount Athos of John Komnenos included in the Greek Palaeography of Bernard de Montfaucon, but, as far as we are acquainted with the problem, their Greek text has been published only once, in 1843, in an expanded variant for religious use which constituted a part of an obscure Proskynetarion of Docheiariou known mainly thanks to the descriptions of L. Petit, D. Gkines and V. Mexas.
