Abstract

The four-story eastern fagade wall of the western range of cells at the byzantine monastery of St. Luke in Boeotia, according to recent architectural and structural survey, consists of approximately 20 different structural phases, dated from the byzantine period (11th century AD) until today. Its strengthening and partial restoration, which became necessary during the recent strengthening and restoration works at the second floor cells, will be carried out: First, by increasing the existing mechanical strength of its elements, with the use of cement grouting and repointing, the partial reconstruction of the masonry walls and the seaming of cracks or structural joints.
