The Evergetis Project is an interdisciplinary, international and inter-faith investigation into the monastery of the Theotokos Evergetis, founded outside the walls of Constantinople in 1049. The monastery possesses a dossier of texts unrivalled apart from Stoudios, although the material evidence is much thinner — even the site has been lost. It has long attracted a considerable bibliography, but of late, more radical claims for its importance and influence in the development of Byzantine and orthodox monasticism have been made, which the project is evaluating. It aims to publish texts, translations, commentaries and studies on the main surviving texts, and also involves contextual studies integrating the art, archaeology, theology, economics and literature of Byzantine monasticism in the eleventh and twelfth centuries.
