Scope and Content Part of a series of images taken by F.W. Hasluck during the course of his visit to Mount Athos in 1911. The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Athos: Zográphou: E. side of court with clock tower".
Notes Date based on Hasluck's visit to Mount Athos to research his book, Mount Athos and its Monasteries (1924).
Further information Zographou Monastery is a wealthy foundation, most likely in the late 11th century, from three nobles from Ochrida in Macedonia. It is dedicated to St George. Around 1500, there was a great deal of rebuilding although nothing from this period remains. Hasluck's impressions in 1911 were of a wealthy monastery with well-kept buildings that date to the latter part of the 18th century or early 19th.
