St Basil's Cathedral

Sunday, 01 May 2011

St BasilEvery nation is famous with something unique that is intrinsic to it. The same as France is known for Eiffel Tower, Italy is famous for the Pisa Tower and Egypt –for the pyramids, Russia is known for its St Basil's Cathedral which is located in the heart of Moscow, on the Red Sqaure. The structure is unique in regards to architecture, though typically of Russian style as the foreigners state, and yet the St Basil's Cathedral is the sign of Russia.

Actually the cathedral is not the one to honor St.Basl. The Feast of St. Mary Cathedral (Pokrovsky Cathedral) is located on the Red Square built in the middle of the 16th century by the order of Ivan the Terrible to commemorate the seizure of Kazan. In the course of marches against the Kazan princedom around the stony Trinity church which was situated there before the reign of Ivan the Terrible, after every war triumph a wooden chapel was built to honor this or that saints. After the final win, the successful assault of Kazan, the ruler ordered to build a new cathedral there of the incredible beauty to be the only cathedral in the world.

The particular confusion is observed with the chief architect for the Pokrovsky Cathedral. During the Soviet Union reign, the version was accepted in the population that the masters called Barma and Postnik were those who built the masterpiece of Russian architecture. There was the legend that Ivan the Terrible, upon completion of construction, realized he had an incredibly beautiful cathedral and he caused the architects become blind to prevent them from constructing something like that.

Presently the historians tend to adopt the version that there was the only architect called Ivan Yakovlevich Barma, aka Postnik (Feaster) since he was adherent to all Orthodox feasts. And the legend of making him blind is not proved since the blind architect could never had finished construction of several cathedrals that were erected just after the St. Basil Cathedral was completed, officially announced as June 29, 1561. The great restoration to strengthen the back is needed that wall affected as the result of Moscow occupation by Napoleon in 1817. After the October Revolution there was the threat to demolish the Pokrovsky Cathedral and in 1930 the opportunity of demolition was seriously discussed as if it prevented the auto traffic. In the end the common sense prevailed and the treasure of the national culture was reserved.

Considering the structure as the legend of architecture, the St. Basil’d Cathedral is presented as nine different churches with eleven altars (two of them were built in the course of further reconstruction works) located on the entire foundation. The central altar which gave the official name to the cathedral is called Pokrovsky Cathedral, the northern one is called in favor of the Sts. Adrian and Natalia, Ms., the northeastern structure is named after St. John the "Almoner", the eastern is known as Trinity, the southeastern favors Saint Alexander Svirsky, the south is built for St. Nicholas the Wonderworker, the southwestern cathedral is for Saint Barlaam of Khutyn, the western is known as for Entry of Christ into Jerusalem, the northwestern is to honor the Saint Gregory the Illuminator of Armenia. In 1588 the compass of St.Basil was added and in 1672 - Laying the Veil (since 1680 it is known as Nativity of Theotokos, and since 1916 as Saint John the Blessed of Moscow. The compasses were connected with each other with the system of passages and each church is crowned with the bulb-shaped dome, each of tem differing from one another. Apart from the magnificent exterior, the architectural and composition beauty and unique look of the Cathedral with the height of 65 meters is that the structure has no distinct front and it is impossible to define at first sight which is front and which is back side since the structure is frontal to every side you are.

Since 1991 года, in 60 year’s interval, the regular divine services are held in Pokrovsky Cathedral though it still keeps the status of the branch at the State Museum of History entered in the list of objects of the UNESCO World Heritage.
