Aspects of the monastery's operation, according to John II's Typikon:
[36. Establishment of a Hospital (pp. 757)]
Since my majesty also prescribed a hospital which should shelter fifty bedridden sick people, I wish and decree that there should be that number of beds for the comfort of these sick people. Of these fifty beds, ten will be for those suffering from wounds or those with fractures, eight others for those afflicted with ophthalmia and those with sickness of the stomach and any other very acute and painful illnesses; twelve beds will be set aside for sick women and the remainder will be left for those who are moderately ill.
[52. Salaries of the Hospital Staff (pp. 762-3)]
We prescribe that all staff in the hospital who have been appointed to look after the sick are to receive the following: [...] The two chief doctors, those whom we have decreed should be called protomenitai, should receive seven similar nomismata each, for their food half a nomisma each, and for their grain allowance thirty-eight modioi of grain each.
The two chief surgeons should receive precisely the same.
[69. Independent Status of the Monastery (p. 773)]
The monastery will be completely free and under no subjection, being subject to no authority, with no one having control over it, independent and self-governing, master and controller of itself, placed under no ecclesiastical control, or princely authority or any other governmental power, with sole claim on its own possessions and enjoying all of them with complete power and authority and with the regulation of inalienability observed in respect of all the things dedicated to it, whether properties or monasteries or any rights both secular and spiritual.
I wish this monastery to be respected, defended and supported first by my very dear son the basileus Lord Alexios and then in turn by the leading member of our family...
