Collection(s):

The building was built in 1827 by Frusina Băltăreţu and was used as refectory of the monastery. Pasărea Monastery comprises two churches: Trinity Church (having silver-coated icons from the 18th century) and "Dormition of the Mother of God" Church. Since 1889 it has been used for other needs of the monastery, and since 1966 it has sheltered the Religious Items Collection. The collection was established following the decision of His Holy Grace Patriarch Justinian. The largest collection was donated by Mother Arcadia Rădulescu (icons and pottery), while the rest of the collection was donated by the personnel of the monastery. It includes wooden icons from the... 18th - 19th centuries, cloth icons brought from Jerusalem, glass icons, crosses, books and clothes. The collection has also a part of the works of the sculptor Gheorghe Anghel (gypsum works), donated as reward for having been sheltered during the last years of his life, and buried there.
