English: Stoudios or Studion (Latin: Studium) was historically the most important monastery of Constantinople (Istanbul), the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. Although the monastery has been derelict for half a millennium, the laws and customs of the Stoudion were taken as models by the monks of Mount Athos and of many other monasteries of the Orthodox world; even today they have influence.
