Volume I comprises a prologue by the abbot of Iviron Monastery, Archimandrite Nathanael. It is followed by a preface by Paschalis Kitromilides and an extensive introduction, where the author presents all aspects of the relations between the Iviron Monastery and Wallachia and Moldavia for five centuries. Particular emphasis is given on the more than twenty dependencies belonging to the monastery in both regions. The rest of the volume contains a description of the archive, its classification table and summaries of the documents, from the oldest dating to 1432 up to 1820. Volume II contains the remainder of the summaries (from 1821 to 1910), indexes, a glossary, a table of archive numbers corresponding to the serial numbers in the volume, plus a short summary in French. The two volumes are accompanied by an Appendix wherein the monk Maximos Iviritis recounts the two journeys undertaken by a representation of the monastery, together with the author, to Romania in search of their former dependencies in May 2000 and May 2003.
