The renewal of ?Sf. Nicolae? Church


The County Council Brasov and the Archdiocese of Ardeal unfold a common project as a first in Romania. The CC president, Aristotel Cancescu, and the Archbishop of Sibiu and Primate of Ardeal, His Grace Laurentiu Streza, officially met to establish the cooperation in restoring the ecclesiastical architectural assembly Sf. Nicolae Church of Scheii Brasovului.

Huge ancient Library

The first phase of the project requires an amount of 1 million euro and includes Sf. Nicolae Church with its chapels, the Museum of First Romanian School, the enclosure walls, Barac House (18th century), a library hosting 40.000 ancient books and over 30.000 documents dating back to 800 years ago, an ancient books depository, icons, liturgical silver-ware and ancient paintings.
The ecclesiastical architectural assembly, on which renewal and conservation the CC is focused, is an historical monument, attested since the 15th century.

Bringing the Past in Present

Sf. Nicolae Church hosts inestimable art works and 500 years old ancient icons. Many of the artefacts suffered degradations in the course of time, therefore they require urgent reconditioning. The program?s purpose is to create a powerful cultural and historical orthodox centre, able to bring in present the entire history of the complex.
The Primate of Ardeal His Grace Laurentiu Streza, declared himself overwhelmed with emotion in front of this patrimony and thanked the country for having assigned such an important amount to bring in present the values of the past.

Judged by the History

The priest Vasile Olteanu, the curator of the First Romanian School, is extremely happy to see his dream fulfilled, after vainly notifying for years the authorities about the dangers of the degradation. ?The value of this patrimony, including the ancient books and the artefacts, is inestimable. We would have been judged by the history for keeping those values in deplorable storage conditions?.

Personal Involvement

The CC president Aristotel Căncescu was personally involved in conserving the authentic values and reinvigorating the spiritual patrimony of Brasov. ?The County Council assigned considerable amounts to save the cult establishments, the historical monuments, the old Citadel of Brasov and the monuments neglected by the communists. We have the moral obligation to not let them disappear?.
In Brasov county there will also be rehabilitated several other religious constructions, among which the Cathedral of Fagaras and the evangelical churches of Harman, Cristian and Sanpetru.
