Photographer's Note

This is a view of the interior of Christ Savior Cathedral. As I told you before, this church was created to celebrate the victory of Russians against Napoleon and was demolished by Stalin in 1931.
It is prohibited to take photos inside, but I am ever trying to break such idiot rules.
The interior is huge and divided in different levels, something usual in Russian churches. I only visited the main part.
Here we can see the Iconostasis, that is the barrier that protect the sacred space from the rest of the church. I read some priests were shot and killed while trying to save some sacred objects from this church while it was being demolished.
As you can see it is marvelous and the modern artists got to rebuilt it perfectly and the faith is up again, despite the desire of atheist ideology to kill it. The Soviet Regime acted of many forms, killing and sending thousands of religious people to the prison, extinguishing families, taking the children to be raised by the government and doing many other things as demolishing church towers, melting rings of churches, knocking crosses, creating museums against religion inside churches, transforming temples en depots, prohibiting masses and religious events, and so on.. They forgot the main temple of a faith is inside a mind, or inside a soul, if you believe we are immortal.

Essa uma vista interna da Catedral do Cristo Salvador. Como disse antes, ela foi erguida para celebrar a vit鏎ia dos russos contra Napole緌 e foi demolida em 1931 por ordem de Stalin.
proibido tirar fotos no interior, mas eu sempre dou um jeito de burlar essas regras idiotas.
O interior dividido em n癉eis diferentes, algo comum nas igrejas russas. Eu apenas conhecei a parte principal.
Vemos aqui o icon鏀tase, que a barreira que separa o recinto sagrado do resto da igreja. Li que alguns padres foram mortos a tiros quando tentavam salvar os objetos sagrados da igreja durante a demoli誽o.
Como voc瘰 podem notar, os artistas modernos fizeram um trabalho perfeito na recria誽o da igreja tal qual ela era e a f continua de p, apesar do desejo da ideologia ate疄ta de mat-la. O Regime comunista sovi彋ico tentou de tudo, extinguiram fam璱ias, mandando crian蓷s para serem educadas pelo governo, demoliram igrejas, demoliram torres de igreja, derreteram sinos, derrubaram cruzes, perseguiram, prenderam e mataram milhares de religiosos, proibiram missas e eventos religiosos, criaram museus anti-religiosos dentro das igrejas, transformaram templos em f墎ricas e dep鏀itos, e assim por diante.. Esqueceram que o maior templo est na mente das pessoas, ou, para quem acredita na vida eterna, na nossa alma imortal.
