Perhaps I should have said 'misconstrued'?

I would trust St. Athanasius and the two desert fathers? on the left much more than Martin Luther and the other two Protestant ministers on the right.

Yes, you have misconstrued my intentions. I initially intended to put T.D. Jakes on the right, but I thought that would be a bit too "straw man." John McArthur and R.C. Sproul are considered to be theological intellectuals by their followers. And yes, of course, St. Athanasius was African but not "Black."

And, BTW, I have been wrong twice before, so don't feel bad.  Wink

So St. Athanasius wasn't a Black man? I honestly thought he was - was he Arab then or Berber or?

Nationalism in Construction: The Memorial Church of St. Sava on Vračar Hill in Belgrade

Bojan Aleksov

p. 47-72

Résumé | Plan | Texte | Notes | Citation | Auteur



Résumé





The role of St. Sava, whom the late Serbian Patriarch German praised as the “Sun of Serbian heaven” in Serbian oral tradition during medieval and Ottoman period was to al-ways watch over Serbian people. In the age of nationalism however, the Serbian cult of St. Sava acquired different tasks representing and reproducing, depending on circumstances, powerful images of national golden age, national reconciliation and unification and/or martyrdom for the Church and the nation. For more than a century now, a church dedicated to this saint is being built in Belgrade, aimed to epitomize and monumentalize these images. After years of oblivion the Serbian Church in mid-1990s drew attention back to the St. Sava Church and began holding services on the plateau in front of the construction site or recently even inside the unfinished church. In the atmosphere of the complete breakdown of the Serbian society, where basic economic and political security could not be provided, not to mention spiritual or cultural revival, “Serbian National Cathedral” was again hailed as a celebration of “victory over the enemy” and the segment of its role as the act of societal repentance for the communist era was lost. In the year 2000, after the overthrow of Milošević and almost a ten-years break, the work has begun again. More than a century after its construction was initiated, the Church on Vračar Hill is still awaiting completion and to assume the monumental and memorial role it was assigned.

According to legend in the place of the lake there had been the Switez city, a very beautiful one. Once invaders came to Navahrudak land. Old and young men went to fight and in the city only helpless wives and daughters left. When the invaders found themselves in front of the gate to the city and the Stitez women were already ready to die in the flames, but not to surrender to the enemies, a miracle occurred. The earth parted and swallowed up the town. In its place an extremely beautiful lake spilled.

According to legend in the place of the lake there had been the Switez city, a very beautiful one. Once invaders came to Navahrudak land. Old and young men went to fight and in the city only helpless wives and daughters left. When the invaders found themselves in front of the gate to the city and the Stitez women were already ready to die in the flames, but not to surrender to the enemies, a miracle occurred. The earth parted and swallowed up the town. In its place an extremely beautiful lake spilled.

Thanks Michal for the explanation. Were the invaders Mongols? Did the city, like Kitezh, continue to exist, albeit invisibly? I am fascinated by these legends...

I am asking whether, according to the legend, the city continues to exist, but invisibly. That is what the legend of Kitezh says.

OK, the city is told to had been under Mendog, and Moscovians were the invaders.

According to the legend only sometimes prayers of the women or clatter of the weapons is heard.

Sunday of Triumph of Orthodoxy 2011 in the Greek Parish of St. Andrew in Rio de Janeiro.

For the 3rd consecutive year, all jurisdictions hold a pan-Orthodox celebration in Rio de Janeiro, each year in a parish belonging to a different jurisdiction.

In this picture we can see a Russian priest (MP), a Greek priest (CP), a reader from Congo (AlP), and convert priests belonging to the Patriarchate of Constantiniople and the Polish Orthodox Church.
