I deleted what seemed to be stray, nonsensical words in the second paragraph.  However, the entire quoted section is odd.  The whole thing cannot be attributed to Egeria (as it refers to a mosaic dating from the 10th century).  Plainly, the final two paragraphs are from other commentary included in the work cited.  As it is, the quote is confusing.  I don't have the resource at hand to correct it or to make more sense of it.  Hopefully, whoever contributed it, or someone else with a copy of it, can help.

I doubt that this is the oldest Christian monastery. Bulgarian researchers have claimed that the oldest monastery in Bulgaria and possibly in Europe is the St. Athanasius Monastery in the village of Zlatna Livada, near the town of Chirpan. It was reportedly established by St. Athanasius the Great himself in AD 344. You may read the following article (in Bulgarian): [1]. --Vladko 09:37, 26 Apr 2005 (CDT)

I deleted what seemed to be stray, nonsensical words in the second paragraph. However, the entire quoted section is odd. The whole thing cannot be attributed to Egeria (as it refers to a mosaic dating from the 10th century). Plainly, the final two paragraphs are from other commentary included in the work cited. As it is, the quote is confusing. I don't have the resource at hand to correct it or to make more sense of it. Hopefully, whoever contributed it, or someone else with a copy of it, can help.
