The original document with the authentic signature of Sava
The Karyes Typikon (Serbian: Карејски типик/Karejski tipik) was written for the Karyes cell on Mount Athos in 1199 by Saint Sava, at the time a monk and later the first Serbian Archbishop. It is basically a translation from a standard Greek ascetic typikon with some minor changes. It became a model for Serbian solitary or eremitical monasticism also outside of Mount Athos. It is published along with the Catalog of Cyrillic manuscripts from the Hilandar monastery since 1908.
