The Morgan Library & Museum in New York and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople have reached an agreement under which a 12th-century Greek manuscript donated to the Morgan in 1926 will be placed on extended loan to a Greek Orthodox monastery in northern Greece, approximately 150 kilometers east of Thessaloniki.

The manuscript, containing the New Testament’s Epistle to the Hebrews and Book of Revelation, is a fragment of a larger New Testament manuscript. The arrangement between the Morgan and the Patriarchate enables the Morgan fragment to be housed in the Monastery of Panagia Eikosifoinissa, sometimes referred to as the Monastery of Kosinitza. There, in the Monastery’s library, it will be available to researchers, scholars, clerics, monastics, and theologians for use in furtherance of educational, cultural, or religious purposes.
