Bodrog Hodog Monastery has made an important contribution to maintaining and strengthening the ancient faith on these lands.
According to an old legend, the monastery was founded as a result of the discovery of "the Virgin Mary with Baby Jesus" icon. Following the excavations made in 1976, in the monastery were discovered few vestiges that testify the existence of a monastic settlement on this site, right from the beginning of millennium II.

In 1177 was made the first documentary certification that we know, in a diploma given by King Bela III, in which the Monastery Hodos - Bodrog is recorded as having properties, being also mentioned the neighbors; but the church is older, as some local historians say.
The Tartar troops invasion in 1241 weakened the monastic system in Arad Plain, after which many monasteries disappeared from historical sources. But Hodos - Bodrog Monastery resisted this difficult situation. The church of the monastery was destroyed, but the monastic life continued, as we find a mention in a document dated 1278.

After research and archaeological views of historians, the present monastery church is dated in the second half of the fourteenth century, about the same time as some monasteries in Romanian Country: Vodita, Cozia, Tismana, Prislopul de Hateg, which resemble in terms of architecture.

Hodos - Bodrog Monastery
worked in the regime "household annex" to the Bishopric of Arad in 1976. After the floods of 1970,  the communist authorities were asked that the monastery regains the 5 hectares of land as a protection area, so that eventually, composed of built land, courtyards and gardens, to be 10 hectares.

The former bishop, Visarion Astileanu granted autonomy to the monastery in 1977 and since then, the spiritual and household life has greatly expanded. In 1991, according to Law 18, the monastery was given 10 hectares of arable land and 30 hectares of forest, then, following to be completed up to 50 hectares of arable land, agricultural area.
