This book is the definitive documentation of a significant segment of the Greek manuscript legacy – the organic library of the famous monastery of the Theotokos  Πετριτζιώτισσα (Bačkovo) near the city of Asenovgrad in Bulgaria. It provides comprehensive scholarly descriptions of thousands of texts, major and minor, that served the liturgical needs and  helped form the mind-set of the Orthodox monastic community on the Balkans.
Dorotei Getov is a classical philologist-turned-student of Greek manuscripts, currently employed by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences as Senior Researcher in Byzantine Literature at its Institute for Literature. He has published several catalogues of Greek manuscripts kept in Bulgarian libraries as well as the editiones principes of the so-called Florilegium Mosquense and of a collection of scholia to the Byzantine legal corpus known as Basilika.

« Des catalogues précis et sûrs, qui paraissent dans des délais raisonnables : les spécialistes des textes et des manuscrits ne peuvent rêver d’une meilleure conjoncture. Puisse D. Getov poursuivre la tache engagée en Bulgarie, permettant ainsi a la communauté scientifique de prendre connaissance de fonds importants de manuscrits, peu connus, sinon presque totalement inconnus. » (Matthieu Cassin, dans la Revue des études byzantines, 74, 2016, p. 423)
