SAINT-ANDRÉ CHURCH (АНДРЕЈА ЦРКВА СВЕТИ)

Vintage plate 2018

Beautifully set on the shores of the artificial lake, the Sveti Andreja church is all that remains of the monastery of the same name founded in 1389 by Andrijaš Mrnjavčević, one of the two sons of the Serbian king Vukašin. Small in size, it is typically Serbo-Byzantine in style. It includes a nave surmounted by a dome mounted on a drum (to the west) and a trifoliate apse (to the east), i.e. "with three leaves" corresponding to the altar (in the centre), the diakonikon ("sacristy", in the south) and the prothesis (reserved for the preparation of communion, in the north). A narthex was added in the east in the 16th century. The interior preserves remarkable frescos executed around 1389. These are divided into 3 horizontal registers: the holy warriors in the lower register (Saint George, Saint Demetrios, Saint Theodore Tiron and Saint Theodore the Stratilate), a cycle of the Passion of Christ in the intermediate register and a cycle of the great Orthodox festivals in the upper register (Nativity of Christ, Baptism of Christ, Annunciation, etc.). The most remarkable are those in the intermediate register with magnificent representations of the Last Supper, the descent of the Cross and the Ascension of the Mount of Olives
