Summary/Abstract: The article deals with some of the theoretical problems, related to the future catalogue description of the manuscripts of Zograf monastery on Mount Athos. Taking the Psalter manuscripts as a starting point, the author discusses terminological and analytical issues of the cataloguing. The second part of the text puts up specific problems, concerning three of the library’s “jewels”. Ms. 59, the so-called Psalter of Radomir, still hides unsolved liturgical calendar puzzles. Ms. 79, the Psalter of Avram Dimitrievich, one of the few Bulgarian manuscripts with chrysography, is notable not only for this fact, but also because its illumination forms a secondary semiotic system, revealing liturgical and theological topics. In addition, Ms. 104 contains fragments from a Psalter, that might be connected with the period of church flourishing in Moldavia under the rule of prince Stephen the Great, Ștefan cel Mare, or even with the prince himself.
