Publication Type
Life of Saint Niphon, former patriarch of Constantinople (1486-1488, 1496-1498), attributed to Gavriil Protul (that is, the head of the Athonite monastic community). Unlike the Life of Niphon written by Iustinos Decadios, Gavriilʼs version deals at length with historical Wallachian events that occured between 1504 and 1520. This “historical” part was later included in some versions of the Chronicle of the Cantacuzenus Family (Letopisețul cantacuzinesc), as well as in the Chronicle by Radu Popescu.
