St.Michaels' Golden-Dome Cathedral


St.Michaels' Golden-Dome Cathedral

St.Michaels' Golden-Dome Cathedral - Is one of the most ancient monasteries in Kiev. It includes the Cathedral built in honor of Archangel Michail (the cathedral was ruined in 1930s and rebuilt in 1990s) in Ukrainian baroque style, and also a refectory with the church of Johan Bogoslov (1713) and bell tower (1716-1719). The legend says that the first metropolitan in Kiev Michailfounded it. Since the ancient times the church has its name –Golden-Dome – apparently because it was the only one church with golden domes at that time.

The St.Michael's Cathedral had a special meaning for citizens of Kiev (1108-1113) as it was dedicated to Archangel Michail – the Holy Patron of Kiev. In XII century the Cathedral was the place of burial of all the princes. In XVII near the Golden-Dome monastery there was a Golden-Dome convent that was later transferred to the Podol in 1712. The Golden-Dome Cathedral was seriously damaged during the battle with Batuy in 1482. When Kiev was included to the Moscow state the Cathedral dispossesses its property that was still under the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. But the Hetmans and Cossacks authorities attributed many territories to this cathedral on the left bank of Ukraine.

The deconstruction of the cathedral happened in 1934-1936. The relics of St.Varvara since 1960 have been stored in the St.Volodymyr cathedral. In 1934-1935 the mosaics that survived were taken off and transferred to the St.Sophia's Cathedral. For mosaics “Evharistiy” there was built a special wall in the exhibition hall at St.Sophia's Cathedral, its shape resembles the apse of St.Michael's Cathedral.

The reconstructed St.Michael's Cathedral (1997-1998) – is one of the main Cathedrals of Ukrainian orthodox church of Kiev Patriarchy. Since 2001 the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation has started the process of giving back the remains of mosaics from the St.Michael's cathedral that were kept in Ermitaj. OnJuly 15, 2008 theexhibitwiththeseobjectswasopened. On the bell tower of the monastery there is a modern electric chiming clock and keyboard musical carillon on which a specially trained musician can perform difficult musical melodies.
