Du Prodrome de Pétra à la Sainte-Trinité de Chalki. Jean le Jeûneur, Georges Doukas Nestongos et l'histoire du Prodrome après 1453

Abstract : Two manuscripts coming from the monastery of the Holy Trinity of Chalki (Istanbul, Patriarchike bibl., Hagia Trias 34 and 53) are due in whole or in part to the same copyist, Dorothy. They were produced at the end of the 15th century for the monastery of the Prodrome of Petra in Constantinople. Trin. 53 contains an unpublished Synaxary notice on John the Faster, founder of the monastery, here edited, translated and analysed. The Trin. 34 contains canons for John the Prodrome, by Georges Doukas Nestongos, an author who was not known until now. We propose an analysis of these canons, as well as of two unpublished canons for John the Faster by Isidore I Boucheiras and a monk Cyril. The two manuscripts also shed light on the history of the monastery of the Prodrome of Petra between 1453 and the 16th century: re-founded shortly after the Fall as a women’s monastery, it is a continuation of the previous institution and seems to be closely linked to the patriarchate. Finally, we propose a study on the circulation of several other manuscripts of the Prodrome which then reached the Holy Trinity of Chalki in various ways.
