Summary/Abstract: In my article I have examined some icons and two reliquaries, which were shown in the exhibition Taxidiotes and Revival Culture at the Crypt at the end of 2004. Generally speaking they belong to two groups directly linked with the activities of taxidiotes and those brought from pilgrimages. Most of the monuments shown here have not been published others are well known. Nevertheless their selection is based on the intention to illustrate as much as possible the variety of themes and images which have come down to us, thanks to activities of taxidiotes. The main aim of the study is to outline the various routes through which these themes reach Bulgaria and hence reveal the role of certain monks - taxidiotes in these processes. The results presented in the study of a small number of icons, connected with the activity of traveling monks (taxidiotes). constiiutes an attempt to draw the attention of scholars of Bulgarian art, to the contribution of taxidiotes in establishing contact with the monasteries of Mt.Athos and bring forth their undoubted contribution to the spread of new and unknown themes and images in Bulgarian Art in the 18th and 19th century.
