    Wow! ‘Nuff said.

  2. It is wonderful. A shining example of creativity within tradition.

  3. I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in the fear I will worship toward the holy temple. Lead me, oh Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make the way straight before me, that with a clear mind I may glorify thee forever, One Divine Power worshipped in three person: AFTHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT
    May the LORD preserve the beauty of thy house, now and ever and unto ages of ages, AMEN.

  4. WE ARE ORTHODOX, WE ARE ORTHODOX, WE ARE ORTHODOX!

  6. Andrew — should you ever find your way back to Indiana, perhaps this might be of interest to you: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/gallery?Avis=BG&Dato=20131015&Kategori=OPINION21&Lopenr=310150042&Ref=PH&nclick_check=1

  7. I’d love see more of Dr. Ristic’s work and writings on church architecture. Can you recommend additional English resources on him? (Or could you write more posts on these topics? Very much enjoyed this post and your thoughts on Ristic’s work!)

    1. I wish I could. What little information I could find I had to translate from Serbian. If there is anyone out there with more information about Ristic’s churches, please send it to me!

    A parcel-gilt variation of your Holy Ascension chorus would have looked wonderful in that space, Andrew. What a remarkably timeless — and yet completely original — building! The mark of a great architect in all times and places.

    As a Roman Catholic, all I can think is: why did we decide to give up this beauty?! I don’t understand. Dear Orthodox brothers, please pray for Christian unity. We need tradition back!

    It is truly beautiful. Praise God and give him the glory.
