Doesn't Nea Moni mean "New Monastery"? The title of this article would thus seem a bit redundant ("Monastery of New Monastery"). —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 00:28, May 6, 2008 (UTC)

"Technically" you are right but you are also not since that is actually how it is referred to ... and it is also known on a official scale (EU etc) as the <<Monastery of "New Moni" of Chios>>, see UNESCO link ... so I am using what is is referred to in official documents and is known in Greece Vasiliki 00:35, May 6, 2008 (UTC)
