Summary These artistic treasures stand today as a testament to the rich cultural and spiritual heritage of the Romanian people. Unique in the world, these monuments reflect a cultural legacy inherited from Byzantium and the Roman Empire. The author provides a comprehensive introduction discussing the art and architecture of the monasteries and painted churches of Northern Moldavia. Each church is then presented separately in words and pictures to reveal its own unique history and artistic beauty.
