The religious community assumed a dynamic part in the Cretan safety of Ottoman guideline amid the Cretan revolt in 1866. 943 Greeks, basically ladies and Children,looked for shelter in the religious community. Following three days of fight and under requests from the hegumen (abbot) of the cloister, the Cretans exploded barrels of explosive, deciding to give up themselves instead of surrender.
