VORONEŢ MONASTERY - “THE EASTERN SISTINE CHAPEL” – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

VORONEŢ MONASTERY - “THE EASTERN SISTINE CHAPEL” – UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE

Often called "The Sistine Chapel of the East", Voroneț Monastery will astound you with the "Judgment Day” scene painted on the entire west side wall of the monastery’s church, but also with "Iesei’s Tree" – King David’s father – a theme illustrated on blue background showing Jesus Christ’s human ancestors.

 

It is interesting that this theme is lined by a contra-fort where important philosophers of the world, who were neither Christians nor Jews, are painted: so you will find "Tsar Aristotle" and "Tsarina Sibila", the Greeks Socrates, Pytagora and Plato.

 

"The Voroneț Blue" keeps intriguing researchers. They have not managed to find out the chemical composition of the used color, a color that keeps its freshness despite of the bad weather and of the five centuries that passed ever since.
