Cherepish Monastery

History links the name of Sophronius of Vratsa also with another monastery quite remote from the Kapinovo one – the Cherepish Monastery. Like all other Bulgarian monasteries, it also rises above a river – the Iskar, more precisely in its pass through the Balkans. Throughout centuries, it was inhabited by men of letters, translators and calligraphers who have left us with such valuable works as the Cherepish Gospel of the 16th century, bound in 1512 with gold covers and depicting scriptural scenes; the Gospel of the Monk Danail, Jacob’s Book of Apostles (both dating from the 17th century), and the Margarit collection of sermons and precepts compiled by Priest Todor of Vratsa in 1762.
